New Deli Offers Good Choice in Pelham Bay Area

By Rich Mancuso

Every Bronx resident is aware about being on the move and looking for that quick way to fill the stomach. And in the Bronx there is always an establishment to get that fix in order to satisfy the taste buds whether it be a restaurant or diner on the corner.

There are also those corner stores that are accessible off a nearby street and many that are steps away from the bus stop or MTA subway station. The Bronx certainly does not lack for a variety of choices from the Italian to Spanish dishes or the deli sandwich.

Located on the corner of Westchester Avenue and Middletown Road there is a neighborhood store that has been a favorite to many over the last few years. Recently, a team of owners expanded their mini-supermarket into a deli that has quickly become a welcome addition to the area.

ASRA mini MART and Deli at 2801 Middletown Road still has everything needed to fill the fridge and a variety of household items at a convenient price.  Now the expansion of a deli has quickly become a popular and affordable addition for residents and to those who commute through the area.

There are specials on the board with the hot and cold sandwich of every variety.  Most popular is the ASRA mini MART and Deli version of a Philly cheesesteak that is stacked to the top. In addition specials on the board offer a variety of good choices with homemade daily soups that are made on the premises and at the counter, if requested, a healthy salad will do you good.

And of course start the day with a quick breakfast sandwich of your choice. Catering is also available for that special occasion and at that reasonable price. Contact the ASRA mini MART and Deli at (718) 239-9761 or stop by the store to place your order.
