The legend is true. There exists a mystical place where deli lovers find happiness; the-way-you-like-it, hot and cold, carnivore or veggie, delicious sandwich combinations at great prices. Shangri-La Deli & Salad offers crazy breakfast and lunch satisfaction. A packed deli counter of cheeses, meats and breads supports a fiery grill fiercely ablaze with chicken, turkey, salmon, steak and other daily hot specials and wraps. Another counter boasts two rows of Hot Salad Bar choices, mirrored by a cold counter that shows off its own assortment of delicious fruits and salads.
Owners Phillip and Kristie Yoo run a tight ship with quick service. A long line waiting for Friday’s Grilled Chicken, fresh Mozzarella, basil, tomato, and avocado on garlic bread, foretells tasty, fresh food to come. An LA Veggie version remains popular with veggie lovers. Modest space provides some seats to relax with a cup of Gourmet Coffee.
Don’t climb the Himalayas in search of paradise. Don’t read ancient Tibetan scriptures to find immortal happiness. Just get over to the Shangri-La Deli for some of the best sandwiches in town.
