That bread, those fillings; a focused Inglewood deli serving a strong contender for Perth’s best continental roll.
Deli’s Continental may have begun as a Maylands pop-up, but the hype ensured it quickly became a permanent presence. Having settled in Inglewood, the new venue opened to intense demand and long waits, but as things have settled, the team has started to find its feet and the focus is right where it needs to be: on the sandwiches.
A continental roll may seem simple, but Deli’s Continental’s take on the classic is far more than the sum of its parts.
A continental roll may seem simple, but Deli’s take on the classic is far more than the sum of its parts. Featuring mortadella, Hungarian salami, casalinga salame, fior di latte, tomato, olives, pickled chilli, red onion, lettuce and capsicum conserva, it’s a picture of balance, the house-baked roll the perfect level of crunch and chew, the fillings combining masterfully.
Contis make up the core of the menu – a chicken cacciatore variation, say, or eggplant parmigiana – but everything changes frequently. Overlook the fluffy focaccia at your peril, made even better as the bread component of a special toasted sandwich stuffed with roast pork, pineapple and hot sauce. Ditto the excellent pizza and meatball subs. And if service and seating is a little rough around the edges, keep in mind this kind of sandwich is a WA icon, eaten on the go or street side, or sure, perched at a table if you manage to squeeze into one. Plan out your order, and step into line.
