A pleasant surprise - The Kibbitz Room in Voorhees, NJ
A few weeks ago I went to a "hoagie shop", that South Jersey sandwich-making staple, with a craving for corned beef. The sandwich was...well...let's just say that after I finished, I had still had a craving for a corned beef sandwich.
Driving past the area around lunch time yesterday, my wife suggested the Kibbitz Room in Voorhees (at the intersection of Evesham Road and White Horse Rd/Springdale Rd). A deli? I mean...a real deli? Not a hoagie shop? Ok...I'm in.
It turns out that the Kibbitz Room is, in fact, a deli. Hooray! What a pleasant surprise!
So...we got some potato knishes (the round kind, although the had both round and square) and shared a hot corned beef sandwich on rye (1/2 a sandwich each was enough for lunch). It was very good; not the best I've ever had, but certainly the best around. The "pickle bar" is a nice addition (full and half sour pickles, hot pickles, cucumber and onion salad, kraut, etc).
I am looking forward to going back...just don't tell my cardiologist!
Also try F & M Deli on Church Rd. Mt Laurel. They have corned beef, pastrami, brisket, chopped herring, and all the rest-- and each table is presented with a bowl of assorted pickles. And if you don't like deli, they have some Italian, too (even hoagies), and some lo-cal stuff, as well. You might meet your cardiologist there!
