Michael's Deli

michaels deli brookline

This may sound unbelievable but I used to not be a sandwich person. Other than pb&j's, I was so picky when it came to sandos! Now I love them, and trying different combinations of ingredients and bread is like a little adventure. We heard rave reviews about Michael's Deli, so we had to stop in and see what all the fuss was about!

I ordered the Thanksgiving sandwich, which came with turkey, cranberry sauce, and stuffing, on pumpernickel bread. It was really good - a little dry, but maybe just because turkey is a little dry.

When I tried the NY sandwich with corned beef, I was absolutely blown away! Filled with thick layered of super flavorful corned beef and sauerkraut, this sando was so much better than mine! That's when I realized that under the Michael's Deli sign was their logo: "The corned beef king!" And that every employee there was wearing a shirt that read "Body by corned beef." So clearly this deli specializes in corned beef! Whoops! I'll have to go back and get more corned beef menu items, and less Thanksgiving Day-themed ones!

Walking off our sandwiches, we found some great Boston street art. I loved how this bright, colorful mural really reminded me that spring is here!

Great street art with directions to different Boston neighborhoods and landmarks. I love living in a city where we can casually grab award-winning lunch and then walk around finding great eyecandy like these street art projects! And while I love going out for sandwiches, I really want to learn how to make amazing sandos at home, so be sure to et me know if any of you have an amazing recipe I should try!

  8. I'm a chicken salad person myself. Plus there are so many ways you can go about preparing it to make it completely original. Almonds and grapes are the perfect addition to a classic chicken salad recipe. Sandwiches are always a good idea. (;
    Have a lovely weekend Chelsea!

  12. Holy moly those sandwiches look amazing!! And the pickles look so fresh! I get you on not being a sandwich person. I'm not really either, mainly because they're so messy and I don't like eating with my hands.

  18. It looks good. I am not a sandwich person as well. I only like it when it's packed with ham and turkey. hehe

  20. Oh yum they look good! :) I'm not really a big sandwich person - I prefer wraps really. Probably as they are easier to eat in one hand with baby in the other, ha! :)
