    What would you want on the menu at a Paleo/Primal deli style restaurant?

    Hi everyone,

    I'm wondering what you all would want to see on a menu at a paleo/primal deli style restaurant? I've been considering doing this for a while and wanted your thoughts.

    Thank you!

    Roast beast, pastrami, bacon, garlic sausage, egg, standard sammich veggies+ standard salad veggies + in season veggies, pickles, and a decent cheese selection.

    It would just be nice to see simple meat and veg, but with confirmation it is not cooked in vegie oil or laced with hidden wheat or sugar. It is almost impossible to get 'clean' food.

    Non-cured meats like chicken, steak, roast beef, pulled pork. Cured meats that include liverwurst and head cheese. Since delis usually have sandwiches, maybe have something for non-bread eaters that isn't just salad. Like a sandwich bowl or fajita bowl or something where there's lots of meat, veggies and sweet potatoes but it's not just another salad with a homeopathic dose of dried out chicken breast on top. Awesome desserts would be good, too. Maybe some duck fat fried sweet potato chips or something.

    Alternate dipping vehicles, such as dried vegetables, pork rinds, fried cheese wafers. Along with some fantabulous dips.

    I would totally frequent such a restaurant for the desserts - a much preferred option to making something at home and then have multiple portions use their siren song to lure me into the kitchen.

    Also +1 to duck fat potatoes and alternate dipping vehicles.

    Also eggplant lasagna.

    Basically everything that is available at a regular NY/Jewish deli... just without the bread! I'm Jewish and from NY and when I go to delis nowadays, tossing away the rye bread makes me cringe because it used to be my favorite thing... and now it's just teasing me, staring at me in the face when my order comes! Once I get over that, though, I happily gobble down my corned beef with spicy brown mustard. Yummmm.

    Also, if you could find a way to do a more pirmal-friendly knish, I'd be enthralled to know the recipe and/or give it a taste test.

    +1 (except I'm Italian, so please add some Italian deli products also, but I'm happy to be a guinea pig (no pun intended) for those knish).

    Also, realizing that there are non-primals in the world and there are primals who are 80/20, if you at least had a primal bread alternative in addition to regular bread, that would be great. Things we can put in our coffee like pastured whole cream, pastured butter, coconut oil, etc., would be awesome.

    Duck fat french fries.

    IOW, flip the average deli kind of upside down so that instead of primals having to give up something, the offered products would be primal approved, but you'd concede to carry bread (or whatever) so that you didn't exclude non-primals.

    A pull up bar in the restrooms. Just kidding.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    Really good salads. Like get creative with lots of veggies and good meats and amazing home made dressings. Stews and soups for winter. Bunless burgers of all types.
