The Flying Fig Deli is a Jewish Deli inspired by the famous delis of New York but with a refined edge.
The venue is styled in a contemporary fashion with faux marble topped tables and pendant lights. There is bench seating along the windows with soft cushion pillows for extra comfort and cosiness.
Weak mocha. My mocha was lovely, smooth and creamy but the froth was too airy and fluffy for my taste.
Pastrami, sweet potato, capsicum and onion hash with poached egg, charred sprouts, smoked leek, schug and organic sourdough light rye. The pastrami pieces were thick and juicy with a slight crunchy crust and there was a subtle smokey flavour throughout the dish.
Baked eggs in a spiced tomato sauce with ful medames, parsley and bagel. The tomato sauce was rich and thick while the eggs were nicely poached. The bagel was crunchy with a slight chewiness and perfect for mopping up the tomato sauce.
Red sangria jug served with cinnamon quills and orange slices. The sangria was light and refreshing and the cinnamon added a lovely spice element.
Pastrami on rye. House smoked pastrami with cabbage, kohlrabi and caraway sauerkraut , Swiss cheese, Russian dressing served with a house dill pickle and latke on the side. The pastrami had a beautiful full bodied smokiness while the sauerkraut was crunchy and tangy. The sandwich was unbelievable and I would say it was the best pastrami sandwich in Adelaide.
Brisket burger. Slow braised beef brisket with coleslaw on a soft sesame seed bun. The brisket was a little dry and I would’ve liked more sauce or dressing.
Coleslaw made with purple cabbage, carrot and green apple slices. The salad was lightly dressed which helped to keep it crunchy.
With increasing popularity they have started trading late night on Fridays serving up a select range of their specialty sandwiches and burgers and alcoholic beverages to match.
The Flying Fig Deli make everything in house themselves from smoked meats to cured salmon and even pickling.
Located just outside the Adelaide CBD there is plenty of street parking and is perfect for those wanting to wind down after a long week at work away from the rowdiness of the CBD.
