I was in Waltham for a meeting last night and needed something delicious to eat beforehand. I went to Moody's Delicatessen.
Previously have had their Carolina Pulled Pork and Egg& Cheese Sandwiches - both very tasty. Last night the Bahn Mi called my name and didn't disappoint - it had crisp pork belly, country pate, smoked pork, daikon, carrots, more mint than cilantro with a siracha aioli on a long (vs square) ciabatta style baguette. I intended to eat 1/2 and save the rest for later. It was so good I ate the whole thing. Frank, who fills the sandwich orders, knows how to build a sandwich.

Then, I pored over the contents of the deli case. The staff was more than happy to offer a taste of anything I found appealing. I tried the sweet soppresata (sp?) and the genoa salami. To my taste they were on a par with what I would normally go into Salumeria Italiana or Monica's to buy imported from Italy. The Moody's staff were happy to slice thin as i asked and lay the sliced meat out.

I'll be going back to try some of their other house-made offerings especially when it warms up a bit and the grill comes out of the garage - garlic sausage, italian sausage, maple breakfast bulk sausage ... .
it's a good thing I don't live in Waltham.

Oh and right now they have only a banquet to sit on if you eat in. Some licensing issue with the city that will be corrected by the end of the month with return of the tables and chairs. Still, it's so enjoyable to go into a place that really aims to please. You want places like this to succeed.

Here's the menu www.moodyswaltham.com
