Hand-crafted and hand-sliced hot pastrami piled high on fresh rye bread. Beet cured lox on a poppy seed bagel with a schmear of house-made labneh. Briny pickles.
The very best of the Jewish deli experience is the hallmark of the itinerant Mensch. Jewish Delicatessen, which has been doing pop-ups in Vancouver over the last couple of years.
We haven't seen Mensch in awhile, since their last extended stint wound down in 2017, but owner Nitzan Cohen is bringing the pastrami back for one night only this December.
Cohen, who has been busy of late in his role as Corporate Executive Chef for the Storm Crow Alliance restaurant group, will be serving up his signature slow-brined and smoked pastrami in sandwiches (with mustard, and a homemade pickle on the side), along with the aforementioned bagels and lox at Faculty Brewing on December 11, 2018, from 6 pm "until we run out" says the chef.
So, truly, go get it while it's hot.
Mensch. Jewish Delicatessen Pop up
When: Tues., Dec. 11, 2018, 6 pm (until they run out)
Where: Faculty Brewing - 1830 Ontario St., Vancouver
