Sucker for a sando? Rhetorical question. Specifically, the NY-style, pastrami and pickle stuffed variety frequenting delicatessens from Brooklyn to Manhattan – you know, the ones usually only at found the other end of a 20 hour red eye? *Cue major fomo*

Well, ‘donut’ despair, peckish folk, George’s Deli is here – and they come bearing delicious (suspiciously sub-shaped) gifts. Get your first look at the new, sandwich-slinging kid on Kingscliff’s block…

Bringing handmade donuts, coffee and cold-cut loaded subs to the coastal township’s beach-studded main drag – George’s signifies the delicious debut for double-threat chef power couple, Johnny Ang and his wife Jerrika. Rounding out the venue’s ragtag trio of Reuben-slinging chefs, the husband and wife team will be joined by Johnny’s sister, a skilled chef in her own right, to keep the portable treat offering ticking along. Cripes – talk about kitchen chops, can you just imagine the killer spread this lot would bung on at family dinner?

Doling out handheld bites to Marine Parade’s beachfront perambulators, the compact menu melds beverages and baked-goods infused with Filipino influences, with classic New York-inspired sandwiches. Inspired by her travels abroad, Jerrika was the driving force behind the deli fusion concept. First uncovering her appreciation for the delicatessen staple (and the unique and vibrant foodie culture, obviously) following a stint in the US to complete her apprenticeship.

The couple, who had their meet cute cheffing aboard a cruise ship, bonded over their shared passion for culinary innovation. Later embarking on an opportunity company based in Casuarina, Johnny and Jerrika quickly caught feelings for the locale’s knockout looks, laidback vibe and people. They’re only human, right?

For their first ever culinary venture, the crew engaged the services local experts Kobi Concepts and Coakers Building to handle the interior direction and fit out, respectively. Going for a cool, retro deli aesthetic (insert sparkly emoji – the millennial equivalent of jazz hands, here) peppered throughout George’s interior are rustic tiles, pops of red and an awning window that opens wide to the surf beyond. Basically, we predict this ultra-cute sando spot is set to be some pretty hot real estate among southern punters.

Originally hailing from the Philippines, the passionate foodies have also jumped at the chance to pay homage to their culinary heritage by incorporating nationally-beloved flavours from their homeland into their offering. Weaving in flavours seldom found in Australia, such as Ube, the distinctive purple yam, which you can get in Latte or house-made Donut form.

Mouth watering at the prospect of getting your mitts on those pillowy hand-crafted donuts? Well, hold on to your britches, Gold Coasters – ‘cuz we’ll really be ‘ruben’ it in as we unpack the rest of the menu.

To complement the unmissable Ube Donuts, the signature offering is centred around the short but sweet selection of signature toasties. Such as the La Cubano, made with pork ham, lechon, pickles and Swiss and the Ain’t Reuben toasties, which are both firmly in the #MustTry realm.

Gold Coasters, there’s an up and coming culinary underdog in our midst.

Foodie prospects are officially on the up in the suburb of Molendinar – hot on the heels of beloved Bake House Gozen’s arrival earlier this year – is yet another delicious nosh spot, Janus Deli.

The fresh new kid on Molendinar’s block comes courtesy of a name Gold Coasters will be very familiar with, as this delightful new savoury sibling joins the D Point Ten family.

The owner duo are certainly on a roll, with the new deli concept joining three other bricks-and- mortar locations in their portable eats empire.

The strategic bakeover has been rolling out across the Coast since they launched their first sweet-laden shopfront back in 2018, eventually doughing on to expand to Pacific Fair, Varsity Lakes and Hope Island.

With their donut dreams realised, Dean and Ryan set their sights on their next culinary quest of creating ‘simple yet incredible sandwiches’.

Speaking of which, a little pre-planning may be required to take on this menu and some of those stacked monster subs. Our suggestions? Come hungry, and… consider bringing your own bib.

Traditionalists will delight in classic deli combos such as the Ruben-adjacent Moo-Licious – made with Corned beef, sauerkraut, pickles, swiss cheese, Janus sauce, sourdough.

Though the simplicity of the A Hammy Moment – made with Leg ham, swiss cheese, mozzarella, mayo, sourdough may pose a quandary we can hardly ham-dle.

Espresso Yourself

When it comes to darn good coffee (caffeine shakes, be damned) the rules of ‘too much of a good thing’ do not apply. Broadbeach’s cult fave beverage and cafe bites slinger, No Name Lane, has branched out to bring us a second venue, welcoming its postcode-sharing mini-me, No Name Lane Espresso – just a hop, sip and a jump down the road.

The laneway lurking OG, No Name Lane, is a staple among caffeine and croissant fiends across the Coast, and one we clearly can’t get enough of. Fronting Broadbeach’s buzzing Surf Parade strip just a few blocks south, No Name Lane Espresso is the more express-style offshoot of the two, with a more compact footprint and menu than its namesake big sib. Positioning itself as a convenient pit stop for top-notch coffee and grab-and-go cafe classics. Just quietly, the newbie has already been discovered by a Hollywood heavyweight, who we spotted caffeinating this week. Don’t ask us for deets because we don’t sip and tell.

The NNL crew cut their teeth churning out a mean cup of coffee – the OG site, nestled beneath the Oracle Broadbeach,has amassed a loyal army of addicts by punching out some of the best go-juice you can get on the Coast.

In what was formerly a bit of no-mans-land as far as coffee goes, No Name Lane Espresso has strategically situated itself front and centre along one of Broady’s main arteries – leaning into its position with a focus on grab-and-go style nosh and an array of  thirst-quenching sips.

There’s still ample street-side seating for those wishing to stay and savour their wares (and/or a cocktail, more like). And don’t be fooled, No Name Lane Espresso is packing just as many cool points as its predecessor – with a slick, marble and tile-studded fit out to swoon over.

Think anything and everything you could hope to see stuffed between – or on top of – fluffy bread (or bread adjacent) slabs – of course, the classic B&E roll, Smashed avo sourdough, and Ham, cheese, tomato croissant all make a cameo (there’d be riots, if not) alongside a respectable spread of Open Melts (cop a Ham, pineapple and cheese for some nostalgia) and Turkish bread Toasties.

But, if your average, garden variety Toastie is just not gonna cut the mustard, get amongst the range of Gourmet Toasties whipped up by the Janus Deli sando meistros.

And look, when it comes to their top tier, signature sangas – either the Reuben Sandwich, pastrami, swiss cheese, sauerkraut, horseradish cream, or the Pulled Pork, coleslaw, BBQ sauce, we’re not about to leave empty handed, are we? ‘Espresso-ly’ with coupled that very sweet $2 No Name Lane coffee upgrade combo – how could we say no?

And speaking of complete and utter lack of willpower – there’s also strawberry-spiked Waffles, and a stalwart selection of cabinet-dwellers like Banana Bread and Muffins to sate the sweet cravings.

The only problem we see here? One taste from this convenient location, and next thing you know, you’re subconsciously stopping off for your No Name Lane fix before you even realise you’ve done it. Deadly.
