Today we visited 1762 Deli at Downtown Jebel Ali to celebrate Janet of House of Colour‘s birthday. This is the second time we have converged there for such an occasion, the last time being back in October when we celebrated my 40th.
The deli is owned by the lovely husband and wife team, Manar and Suzi who also own Appetite, a thriving outside catering business and their ethos is simple, “It’s all about the food!”. Their delicious food and warm, friendly welcome is obviously a recipe for success as a steady stream of customers continued to pour in from the many nearby offices throughout our lunch.
As there was a group of us, we opted for a selection of wraps and salads which were all beautifully presented. I shall let the pictures do the talking:
Tofu, rice, sesame oriental salad
Pumpkin, broccoli and feta quiche
Cajun chicken and pepper ciabatta
Pastrami and cheese on rye
The main reason we chose 1762 Deli – the rosemary potato wedges!
The finale. Chocolate overload birthday cake!
All that remains, is to say a massive thank you to Jonquil and all the wonderful staff who looked after us so well today. We will be back again soon!
