The Review:

I have long been a fan of New Farm Deli both for its exceptional food and, as the name suggests, it’s deli counter. A regular breakfast haunt, this week I had lunch at this venue and it did not disappoint.

My “go to” pasta dish has long been an Ameriticiana sauce done with spaghetti (or any other type of long pasta), so, it being lunch, there was only one choice for me to make from the menu.

This was a wonderful example of my favourite dish. The bacon was very well cooked and slightly crispy. The Napoli sauce was smooth with a strong tomato flavour and just enough chilli to “clear the sinuses”. The spaghetti was cooked perfectly.

It is fitting that my first review on “What I ate this week” is from one of my favourite dining venues in Brisbane and it definitely did not disappoint. I can not fault this dish!

On the side:

I paired this dish with an iced long black which, to be expected given how good this venue is, was spot on.

Will I be back?

Yes: probably next week!!!

The Last Word

Brisvegans and visitors to Queensland capital, if you haven’t been to New Farm Deli yet you need to make your way there without delay. It is a Brisbane institution and a must try (and repeat).

The Journey Begins

I love food and I love writing. In the past I have written about my love of specific foods (chicken parmigiana and pies) from my home town of Brisbane.

This blog will be different. It will be about the food I eat both at home and as I travel for work. It is not a food diary rather I will reflect on the good, the bad and indifferent of what I eat regardless of whether it is a meal from a restaurant, something delivered or something microwaved.

Obviously if you have a meal, any meal, that you think I should try contact me here or on Twitter (@shumpty77) and I will give it a go!

Thank you for reading and for joining my food journey.
