Lifestyle: A Quick Lunch @ Little Joe’s Deli, Canterbury

The guys behind Pork & Co have done it again, and thought up a lovely little spot just around the corner. Despite the menu seeming like a confused jumble of dishes, the slightly confusing set-up and the giant pinball machine taking up half of one of the eating areas, it works. An extremely well-priced and casual place for a quite bite to eat, I can’t wait to get back and try out more!

As they do seem to make up their toasties in advance they did me a special no-tomato one, but it wasn’t a problem at all – I hate being ‘picky’ in places! I ended up with a Chorizo & Cheese one, with the chorizo being some of the best I’ve ever had. The cheese was stringy and crispy around the edges, with no hint of sogginess at all. I pretty much inhaled the massive portion…

I also had some fresh pear juice from the dispenser. Sweet, refreshing and utterly delicious, I wish more places offered it.

A complete bargain, and an ideal place to hide from the rain. If you can resist when you walk past Pork & Co of course!

Have you ever been to Canterbury? Where would you recommend visiting?

  • I’m going to have to pay a visit when I come home for Christmas, the food looks great! I’m glad they were nice about your allergy 🙂 xx
