Whether you are lunching downtown or in Goleta, South Coast Deli (1436 Chapala St.; 185 S. Patterson Ave.) is right around the corner. Featuring nearly 30 different “sammies”-hot, cold, and grilled-as well as soups and salads, it’s a great place for a quick and tasty bite. A unique twist on a classic home-style favorite is the Phatty, which takes the chicken salad sandwich to a new extreme by adding basil, avocado, and crispy bacon. If a salad is how you’d like to fill your plate, the Flank Steak Salad combines Southwest-seasoned flank steak, corn, black beans, red bell peppers, and cilantro atop romaine lettuce and cabbage. Best of all, the salad, topped with South Coast’s own chipotle ranch dressing, is easily large enough to share with a friend. If you can’t quite wait ’til lunchtime, you can always stop by the deli before work for a quick coffee and Breakfast Sammie. Next time you have a craving for a salad or sandwich (or both!), be sure to drop by either of South Coast’s friendly, locally owned locations.
