The Coventry Deli

November 16, 2006 Cuisine: American (Traditional), Delis, Sandwiches 2000 Market St Philadelphia, PA 19103 Phone: (215) 972-8310 Website: www.coventrydeli.com -- THE BASKET LUNCH - In a wicker basket you have a choice of a salad or a deli sandwich (with two deli salads and a pickle), a piece of fresh fruit, our own baked goodie, gum, hard candy, chips, condiments, paper goods and a wet-nap ($11.75) -- The office always orders lunch when we have meetings. Today we ordered from the deli located on the first floor of our building. I've eaten there a couple of times for breakfast because they have excellent oatmeal. I had a ham and cheese sandwich on some sort of grainy bread with Dijon mustard, a tomato slice, and lettuce. The sandwich was pretty good, but sadly the cheese was American. Not a real cheese (N.A.R.C). To make up for it, the meat was piled on high. The two deli salads were a macaroni salad and a coleslaw. The macaroni salad was decent enough. Even though it tasted like a prepared salad from the grocery store. The coleslaw tasted like it came from KFC. Pass. The baked goodie was a giant cookie from an outside manufacturer. The cookie was extremely large because it contained two servings and 520 calories. I ate 2/3 and saved the rest for later. I gave my co-worker my chips (Herr'original) and candy. I saved the piece of fruit, a green apple, for later. The Coventry Deli makes a great oatmeal, but only a so-so basket lunch.
