One of the cool things mr. foodie gets to do is eat at cool places BEYOND the Triad…recently he was in Cincinnati and talked about his experience at a little place called Sharonville Depot Deli. Here’s is review from Yelp:
What a charming little deli! The ladies who run this joint are super sweet. I can’t believe this is their first Yelp review! The atmosphere of the deli is warm and inviting with a cozy dining room and a patio that is probably fantastic in warmer months. The deli is nestled in a village like area where other shops are easy to walk to.
On the way into the deli, I asked a guy, who was obviously heading to the deli as well, if it was any good. His reply… “Awesome!”. It’s one of those places where everyone seems to know each other on a first name basis and the friendships are obviously genuine. If I heard correctly, the fish that I’m eating today was caught and cleaned by one of the husbands, and by the taste of things, everything is fresh and local.
Speaking of my meal today, besides fresh-tasting, the fried fish is perfectly flakey and moist. The hush puppies are light and crisp. The smoked Mac n cheese is a savory adult variety but I’m pretty sure that kids would like it too. I’m not a huge cole slaw guy, but it seems to strike a great balance between a little sweetness and the savoriness that is expected. Overall, it’s a great deli that supersedes what you would expect from a deli. And the combination of people, atmosphere and menu would be welcome in any city or town in the country. Cincinnati should be proud to have Sharonville Depot Deli!
