Good Morning from Miami! After delayed flights…and cancelled flights…and rebooking out of a completely DIFFERENT airport, I have finally arrived. How wonderful it is to see the sun…and feel it’s warmth!
As I mentioned in my last post, I am travelling again for work. This weekend, Florida! I have been to Miami several times now, but planning dinners never gets old! Of particular interest, I have reservations at Prime 112 (one of my favorites) and Bin 18. I will be sure to share my reviews!
Before flying out of Moline, IL last night, I made a stop at one of my all-time favorite sandwich joints, The Village Corner Deli in East Davenport, IA. I was introduced to this hidden gem by Julie Edmunds more than 3 years ago and it remains a “must-stop” when I visit the Quad Cities. Thank you, Julie!
For those of you who dine with me often, you know that I can be a creature of habit. When I find something I like, it is hard for me to order something different. I mean, come on, what if it just isn’t as good as my “restaurant favorite”?! For example, each and every time I walk into Her Soup Kitchen, Barb smiles and says, “Roasted Portabella Sandwich?!”….Yes Ma’am! Lunch/dinner at the Corner Deli is no different. When Julie first took me in for lunch, I asked her order for me (I figured she knew what was best!). In my basket arrived a Smoked Turkery Pesto Sandwich. I LOVED it. And so…I order it every time. What can I say? It is one dang good sandwich.
#15 Smoked Turkey Pesto – Smoked turkey, provolone, lettuce, tomato and pesto mayo on a ciabatta hoagie. Served warm! YUM!
The next time you are in the Quad Cities (IA/IL), be sure to stop in and support this local and DELICIOUS little deli. You will be glad you did! (In the meantime, I’ve asked them to consider opening one in Iowa City…I don’t know if they took me all too seriously…but I meant it.)
The Village Corner Deli, 1030 Mound Street, Davenport, IA
INDULGE. In Life. In Love. In Food.
