Central Deli To Open Downtown in the Former Relish Space

Meet Mu-Hua Yang. She and her husband Chen will be opening the Central Deli, downtown’s newest eatery, in the space formerly occupied by Relish at 411 Central NW. The Yangs have owned and operated several restaurants in Albuquerque over the years, but this is their first venture into the world of sandwiches.

The emphasis will be on fresh ingredients, Mu-Hua explains. There will be some old favorites, like a pastrami reuban, as well as some tantalizing innovations, like the curry shrimp sandwich. Hot sandwiches, cold sandwiches, salads... it sure will be nice to have a new lunch option downtown.

This Friday, March 5, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Central Deli will be handing out free samples of their food. The will also be giving 25% off for the entire month of March. I can hardly wait.

This is a Vietnamese tofu sandwich. I had one once. It was $6 and very good.

Issue: Sandwiches

Question 1: How much should sandwiches cost?

Relish just recently closed its Downtown location (though its Menaul one is in fine shape). Opinion? Wonderfully delicious sandwiches with high quality ingredients and creative combinations. Also very expensive, hovering around $10 for a sandwich and side.

So how much should an awesome, take-away sandwich for lunch cost?

Question 2: What’s so hard about making a good vegetarian sandwich?

This was something Relish had(has): excellent non-meat sandwiches that weren’t afterthoughts. Too many restaurants, like a place I checked out today, have exactly one non-meat sandwich that’s called the Veggie and has raw vegetables. What is this? 1950 in Peoria? Meatless sandwiches! Sakes alive!

Anyway, sandwiches are important. To sum up, they should be affordable and the vegetarian ones should be delicious and not random salad bar fixings.

Discuss sandwiches here.
