Riverfront Times' Description

A charming deli on the corner of Soulard's lovely, peaceful Pontiac Park. While there are a few "standard" sandwiches -- a meatball sub with Provel and marinara sauce, the "St. Louisan" (mortadella, capocolla, salami, ham and Provel) -- most are a step above basic deli fare. The "Cajun B.L.T." features very thick, smoky bacon, while the baked mortadella sandwich is a surprisingly happy marriage of mortadella, capocolla, Provel and a relish of artichoke, black olive and tomato. Co-owner Mike Risk (a veteran of Trattoria Marcella) researched cheesesteaks on a trip to Philadelphia, and his delightful rendition is as close to the real thing as you can find in St. Louis.

    The secret to a great cheesesteak hides in plain sight, on the shelves of your local grocery store or maybe even in your own pantry. It's OK. Don't be embarrassed. Shout your love of Cheez Whiz from the rooftops. Or visit 9th Street Deli and order the "Just Like Philly" cheesesteak, which pairs tender steak with the velvety processed cheese food of the gods.

    The cajun bacon is amazing. So is every other thing on the menu.

    A must try: The baked mortadella sandwich, an ingenious concoction of mortadella, capocolla, Provel and a relish of artichoke, black olive and tomato. http://bit.ly/1a46fqM

    Best sandwiches in town.

  • Tammy R. on 12/14/09

    it's always a toss-up for me between the cajun bacon turkey melt or the meatball sandwich. both are fantastic!
