Mor's Kosher Deli Offers "Mor" For Less

Mor's special off-the-menu sandwich: $6.95
Mor, from Tel Aviv, opened his kosher sandwich shop at 19200 West Dixie Highway in Aventura about two months ago. There are some ten sandwiches on the menu that look like food you would find anywhere else -- such as the "Italian" sub of dried salami, honey-glazed turkey breast, lettuce, tomato, onion, olives and pickles. Or a tuna salad sandwich, or a "New Yorker" of pastrami and corned beef.

But Mor goes beyond American-style deli treats. For instance, the shakshuka stew of tomatoes, peppers and onions capped with two fried eggs. Or the "sabich" sandwich: thin slices of roast eggplant topped with hard-boiled egg, hummus, "tehina," Israeli salad (diced cucumbers, tomatoes, red onion, parsley, lemon juice, olive oil); hot sauce is applied according to stated preference. The sandwich was very tasty, but not as good as the one Mor implored us to order.

"You should try the schnitzel," he told us as we were perusing the menu. "I don't see it listed," I said. "It's not on the menu," he replied -- five glorious words that people who love food are always hoping to hear. "But everybody loves the schnitzel."

It's a thin chicken cutlet, tightly coated with sesame-flecked breading and fried to an attractive hue. Of course by the time the hummus (made in-house), tehina, Israeli salad, pickles and hot sauce are applied, the flavor of the chicken becomes almost irrelevant. The combination of it all is delicious, especially served on ;a warm, soft baguette -- the par-baked sort that gets finished on premise.

I stopped in at King's after Mor's and had a couple of regular slices and a meatball sub. I will be posting about it tomorrow.

do yourself a favor and go back for the baked ziti and one of the other pies. They are even better than regular slice.
