Skip the ‘Spicy Special,’ Try the ‘Super Mario’
In this week’s installment of “Order This, Not That,” Jason Bell ventures beyond the “Spicy Special.”
Fondly referred to as Crack-Del, the 109 Gourmet Deli serves up greasy, oozing heroes that never fail to satisfy late night cravings. Famous for the “Spicy Special,” a combination of Cajun turkey, molten pepper jack, a mysterious spicy mayonnaise concoction, and the usual vegetable suspects (lettuce and tomato), this deli might seem like a one trick show. But for those tired of yet another predictably tasty “Spicy Special,” call out for a “Super Mario” instead.
The “Super Mario” combines buffalo chicken, monterey jack, and those same deli vegetables on a toasted hero. Yes, many of Crack-Del’s creations seem to follow this pattern of chicken, some cheese, and vegetables. More than just a sandwich, the “Super Mario” seems like an improved version of its similarly designed brethren. Less gloopy and gooey than a “Spicy Special,” a “Super Mario” tastes like a Chicken Cordon Bleu that never grew up. Stringy melted cheese contributes a slight kick to the already piquant sliced breast, making the “Super Mario” more gyro than plumber.
