Hitting the G Spot: G Street Deli

Luscious chipotle chicken sandwich and meatball soup for $7.49

Suddenly get the munchies coming out of Office Depot down near the Santa Fe. Instead of heading back to Broadway I jes' carry on towards the trolley line. Seaport Village. And right there on well, G Street is the G Street Deli (601 Pacific Highway at G Street, 619-232-5513). Bunch of people sitting in a kind of nice patio that juts out into a walkway with a view to the old Spanish police station (now full of dozers redoing the whole area). So inside, these two, Julio and Alexia are working the sandwiches and selling cigs and six-packs.

I check the big menu above the counter. Most sandwiches are $7.49. But at the end I see they have a half-sandwich plus soup for the same price. Don't have time to screw around. See they have a chipotle chicken, with chipotle Gouda cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato, onion, avocado, peperoncini, and "savory spicy mayo."

"It's the most popular one," says Alexia. She says the soup's Swedish meatball today. Cool.

Julio says this place has been open 21 years. As long as the Embassy Suites hotel, because, oh yeah, this is one corner of it. 

Bottom line, the little tub of Swedish meatball soup ($2.99 if you buy it on its own) would make a meal in itself. There's the meatball, and then the macaroni, cheese, corn, tomato.

And again, the half-sandwich (I had it on rye) is totally lush and delish and also pretty gut-stuffing. The chicken, the cheese, the bacon, the avo, the refreshing lettuce.

I decide to skip the trolley. Forced march to 12th and Imp depot. Walk this baby off.
