Ten Best Delis in Broward and Palm Beach Counties
|Flakowitz Deli facebook|
Starting as a bakery 50 years ago, then a bagel shop, and finally a full-scale deli, just over a decade ago, this Boynton Beach eatery specializes in serious Eastern European and Jewish delicatessen fare: pastrami, brisket, braised lamb shanks, stewed cabbage, stuffed peppers. At one point, the legendary (and now defunct) Wolfie Cohen's Rascal House threatened to sue for stealing its recipes -- with that allegation, you know it must be good. The spot was even featured on Guy Fieri's Diner, Drive-Ins, and Dives -- and there's your celebrity cred.
From the outside, this looks like your run-of-the-mill convenience store. Step inside during lunch, however, and you'll see a full house with lines snaking around the store from the back deli counter. Here, it's all about the sandwiches; deli-style, made-to-order sandwiches are piled high with Boar's Head meats and cheeses and whatever homemade sauces and extras My Market feels like throwing in. Try the Sicilian sub Rosa: a thick stack of prosciutto, mortadella, capicola, and provolone, topped with fresh basil, sweet peppers, and Italian seasonings.Or go for the French Quarter, a French bread-based hot sub made of Brie, roast beef, "Want Mo!" sauce, and fresh rosemary. No matter which sandwich you chose, it's going to be damn good.
