Junior's - food for the housebound

Zoe | Jan 17, 2006 01:21 AM

Still in the throes of surgery recovery here, Mme Zoe needs to be fed very regularly and today we tried Junior's take out.

What a surprise - we had hoped only for hot and edible and what was delivered was fast, really hot, beautifully packaged and just outstandingly good.

Ordered full house with lots of deeply chickeny broth, noodles, teeny pieces of carrot and a fluffy matzo ball plus the most delectible kreplach ever. Just yummy. That's what we ate tonight with an order of broccoli (Whole Foods, really fresh).

Lunch was a pastrami sandwich with achingly fresh rye, lots of lean meat, a decent Russian dressing and potato salad (they forgot the cole slaw). I had half a tongue sandwich which came with barley soup, still not eaten. Also ordered what I thought was half an order of Mme Zoe's all time fave comfort food, Cobb Salad. Ir turned out to be huge and was just the BOSS - chopped lettuce, hard boiled egg, avocado, tomatoes, little bits of crispy bacon and I mean crispy, no fat at all, plus little bits of cheese with an obviously homemade ranch dressing. Tipped the whole thing into a salad bowl and gave it a good toss and we still have half left.

Chowpup stopped by and ate the other half of the pastrami salad. This lot was just over $50 plus tip and it has fed four people so far and still some left.

Mme Zoe made the comment that sometimes delis seem very expensive but them sometimes the price of restaurant food overtakes them and at the moment the last two delis we have been in, seem to be very reasonable compared to regular restaurants.
