Oct 5: The Country Deli; Sussex Smokey


A trip to purchase gas containers for a new outdoor tabletop fire feature, end up passing The Country Deli, and you can’t pass The Country Deli.

Foodie Philip had his regular marinated skirt steak, eggs over easy and home fries. All were great as usual but the home fries were especially good. Foodie Greg chose a Pastrami on Rye with steak fries.

The Country Deli averages $21.99 per serve with tax and tip.


Every since Foodie Greg ate the Sussex Smokey at The Abergavenny Arms on our recent trip, he’s been looking for an opportunity to try his own version, and a cool night was the right time to try it.

A simple dish largely consisting of leeks, smoked fish (haddock in the recipe, smoked trout in our version), and a roux with some seasoning.

  • The smoked trout was $7.49 or $3.75 per serve
  • Heavy cream is $3.49 but we used ⅛ or 22c per serve
  • The leeks were $2.99 or $1.50 per serve
  • A pint of organic Half and Half is $1.99 and we used ½ or 50c per serve
  • Add 40c for breadcrumbs
  • Add 30c for butter
  • Add 30c for seasoning.

While not quite in the same class as The Abergavenny Arms, but a very enjoyable meal for $6.97 per serve.
