If you didn’t get the Orange County Register on Tuesday, you will have missed Benjies Deli reviewed by their resident “Food Frenzy” columnist Claudia Koerner. Well, don’t worry; as with everything nowadays, it’s online too! Click here to read the full article about Claudia’s Reuben sandwich and brisket sandwich lunch.
If you love Benjies Deli, please comment on the OC Register site and let them know! We’d love to see the support of our regulars.
In the meantime, for all of you out there celebrating Christmas, have a happy one from Lloyd and Noriko Weinstein and all of us at Benjies Deli!
Haute Living’s online magazine has picked out Benjies Deli as one of their top five delis in Orange County. And if you have to ask what type of magazine Haute Living is, you’re definitely not their target audience.
This is no weekly rag, or flimsy magazine filled with paparazzi snaps of celebrities out shopping. Oh no. Haute Living magazine regularly features such magnates as Steve Wynn, Sumner Redstone and Michael Douglas on the cover. To put it point blank: their readership isn’t “slumming it” by any means.
And that’s why we’re so pleased that they chose our humble New York deli. We’ve been nestled in Santa Ana since 1967, and have remained relatively unchanged—our service, our recipes and even our bread slicer are still hard at work bringing our clients young and old the same great flavors, day after day.
And although we’re among good company in the top 5 list, we are the only New York-style deli in the roster, which means you can get all the East Coast favorites here, from Reubens to latkes to matzoh ball soup. Plus, they even mention we have a full bar—although they forgot to give our fantastic catering a plug.
But we’ll forgive them! After all, as the author Christopher Luu points out: “There’s nothing they can’t tackle if the most discerning New Yorkers frequent this deli.”
Check out this video from Save The Deli. It’s hilarious! But be warned: you’ll be so hungry after you watch it, you’ll head straight to Benjies Deli for the best New York Deli food this side of the Rockies…
Watch the Pittsburgh Steelers at Benjies Deli this Sunday
Now that Hanukkah is over, we can get back to the important things in life. This weekend, there’s another great lineup of bone-crushing NFL football to watch. But unless you’ve got Sunday Ticket, you could miss your favorite team, and that’s no good at all.
So why not get down to Benjies Deli and settle in at the Bamboo Lounge for six screens of awesome, high-definition football with their DirecTV Sunday Ticket lineup? You’ll get to eat all of Benjies’ superb food–and remember, those Jewish favorites like latkes and brisket are still being served, even after Hanukkah‘s over–and take advantage of the Bamboo Lounge’s full bar. It’s nearly impossible to watch football, or any sport for that matter, without beer. Am I right?
Hanukkah is here, and it’s time to celebrate. Benjies Deli has been serving traditional Jewish food in Santa Ana every day since we opened in 1967. We also cater traditional foods, too, and can make party food and deli platters for your event. Why not let Benjies Deli do all the cooking while you take the credit?
We have a huge list of traditional favorites on the Benjies menu, but we’ve listed a few of them here to tempt your tastebuds. Looking for a little noshing? It’s all in our Appetizers & Noshes section of the menu. Under the category of fish, we have Nova lox, barbeque cod or whitefish served with sliced tomato, cream cheese, Greek olives and an onion bagel; creamed or pickled herring served with your choice of onions and sour cream or wine sauce and rye bread to sop up every drop; or go hardcore with gefilte fish served with julienne carrots, horseradish and Benjies’ soft rye bread.
