An update about Romanouskas openings from Mark Hagan

slowcoooked | Jun 25, 201502:28 PM

Mark Hagan from Micklethwait has kindly responded to my query as to their status, throwing us a couple bones from the menu, and dates for openings, etc. at the new Deli Trailer - Romanouskas. Sounds like just enough fun in time to replace for the time being the vacuum for this type of food left by the disappearance of Melvin's. Can't wait...

Here's the email:

Dear foodie friends,
We've signed a lease and we're ready to roll (pun partially intended). The brand new Romanouskas Delicatessen trailer owned and operated by the Micklethwait Craft Meats crew will be located conveniently next door to the Craft Meats trailer at 1309 Rosewood Austin TX 78702.
The deli trailer will be run by our own Bobby Lovelett. We have already snuck the Romanouskas Reuben onto the menu at MCM on a couple occasions and have received rave reviews from the lucky few who had the chance to try it out.
The amazing artwork on the trailer was done by Kenneth Holland, who also did the art for the Micklethwait Craft Meats main trailer and mobile party trailer.

Romanouskas opening schedule:

Soft opening: Friday-Sunday, July 3-5, 11am-3pm.

Grand opening: Thursday, July 9, 11am-3pm

Regular hours starting July 9: Tuesday-Saturday, 11am-3pm

A couple menu items:

Romanouskas Reuben: Smoked pastrami and corned beef pressed on caraway rye with housemade sauerkraut, swiss cheese and housemade Russian dressing

All beef hot dog: with housemade sweet pickle relish and creamy dijon mayo

Chicken Sandwich: Brined and smoked chicken, pickled grapes and bell peppers and toasted almonds in a tarragon mayo on toasted Schmaltz kolache roll

Smoked beef sandwich: Sliced smoked beef strip loin, spring onion-horseradish mayo, pickled spring onions and arugula on a housemade seeded and salted potato roll

Ham sandwich: Smoked and cured pork shoulder, housemade whole grain mustard, braised mustard greens and pulled pork on a housemade sourdough
