A big Dilly — ***1/2 over all

29 Aug

Back in ye olden days (i.e. last year) when I still worked in downtown Tulsa, I would often steal away to eat lunch at Dilly Deli. They have a grilled portobello sandwich that is drool-inspiring (the Michael Roy — try it!). Since I now work on the other side of the world, I only go there on weekends now. Tear. Yesterday was such a weekend day. After rising early to pedal to the farmers market, I was famished and ready for a meal around 10:30, so we brunched it.

Irish oatmeal (the Sophie) with half the container of brown sugar and strawberry slices, with hashbrowns (I ate a little more than half), fresh orange juice, and coffee alongside. It was perfect! For all you vegan/lactose intolerant readers, their oatmeal is made with water instead of milk. Yay!

My beloved taller half tried to keep it healthy, too, with their homemade granola (the Beau) topped with strawberry yogurt and strawberry slices, coffee on the side. We both drink it black, like our souls. Or something.

Dilly Deli has several good vegetarian options, and many things are easily veganizable. Check out the menu by clicking on the categories on the top of their website. If you’re ok with dairy and/or eggs, I recommend the Meg (add avocado unless you’re allergic like my love) and my beloved Michael Roy (there goes the drool). They always have a veggie soup and tasty salads as well. Brunch/breakfast has lots of options, too, with pancakes, bagels, muffins, French toast, and the above-mentioned dishes. Try it out if you haven’t.

Over all, I give it *** on the veggie-options scale and **** on the tastiness scale. (See this post for more info on the scales.)

Dilly Deli is in the Blue Dome District at 2nd and Elgin.

    Mmm, this looks yummy! I’ve never been there but have heard good things about that place. One day I need to haul my cookies up there 😉
