We tried a new sandwich shop in our neighborhood last night, Pico Deli. It's located at Pico and Carmona, Mid-City L.A., next to OK Liquor Shop. The sandwiches are DELICIOUS! We tried the jerk turkey on a roll and a grilled shrimp po'boy on French bread.
|Spicy Jerk Turkey Sandwich|
Pico Deli offers hot and cold sandwiches, burgers, fries, fresh salads and more. It's a very clean, well-designed new space with fancy neon outside.
|Grilled Shrimp Po'Boy|
I'm very particular about my shrimp po' boys. For me, the best one in the City is at Uncle Darrow's near Marina del Rey. Pico Deli po' boy was on a French roll that was a bit too bready. The jerk turkey was on the PERFECT roll and absolutely delish. Next time, I would order the po'boy on this smaller roll and have them splay the shrimp to cover more area. I really liked the idea of having grilled shrimp instead of breaded and fried.
There is this wonderful mural adorning the area over the front door and windows of landmarks of our section of Pico Boulevard.....wonderful!
