Aug 24: The Country Deli; Shrimp, Guacamole, Capers & Black Olives on Baked Tostadas


The Foodies were near The Country Deli around lunch time, so why not drop in! Foodie Philip had his usual marinated skirt steak (rare), with home fries and eggs over easy. Foodie Greg broke with his pastrami tradition to indulge in an enormous rare roast beef sandwich with steak fries.

The Country Deli was $22.35 average per serve with tax and tip.


After such a big lunch we went light for the evening meal. We layered up guacamole, capers and black olives on a baked tostada and topped with sous vide shrimp, which were perfect.

While in some recipes, we found the black olives to not work with the other ingredients, so we removed them. The tostada probably needed a squeeze of lime juice to liven it up, but overall was pretty good (without the olives).

  • The tostadas are 22 for $2.29 or 21c per serve
  • The shrimp was $7.99 for the pack, and we used half, or $2.00 per serve
  • The guacamole was $2.99 and we used about 1/3 or 50c per serve
  • Add 20c per serve for oil and seasoning used to sous vide the shrimp.

A surprisingly filling meal – although Foodie Philip did have two – for an average of $2.91 per serve.
