‘Mensch’ Set To Open Lengthy Pop-Up In The Old ‘Salty Tongue’ Location In Gastown

IMG_3075

Good news! Mensch is coming to Gastown for Winter/Spring pop-up. The popular Jewish delicatessen’s Fraserhood address recently closed at the end of its lease. Chef Nitzan Cohen is hoping to soft launch in Sean Heather’s old Salty Tongue Deli spot at 212 Carrall Street during the first week of February (official launch date is February 27). Cohen is a veritable maestro with pastrami, so this is a welcome win for a neighbourhood that has missed his amazing sandwiches since his Pidgin pop-up came and went last Spring. Want a refresher on what one of his Reuben sandwiches looks like? Feast your eyes…

From the PR:

Mensch. Jewish Delicatessen brings to Vancouver a legit, slow brined, smoked and hand cut hot pastrami sandwich and the best Reuben on a fresh baked rye bread, beet cured Lox on a poppy seed bagel and a delicious Egg salad on a fresh and sweet challa bread. All of that with our house made dill pickle and a sweet lokshen Kugel for dessert. We will still have Lior’s Babkas every Friday (and for pre-ordering), as well as some surprising adds to the menu at the high holidays through the year. Also, our house made pastrami will be offered to sell by the pound, as well as our beet cured lox, our house made Labneh cheese and our egg salad.

Hours will be Monday to Friday from 11am to 3pm and Sunday brunch from 12pm to 3pm. The following images should remind you of Salty Tongue’s interior:
