Pastrami King opens in Barrie, ON Today!
Posted in: Uncategorized
Great news to report today. The Pastrami King deli will open in Barrie, Ontario today at 11 AM.
Headed up by Marty Marks, a caterer in the far north and BBQ master with a history in the deli business, it is the first new delicatessen in Ontario since 2000. It is also one of the first delis in the province to be situated out of Toronto, as more and more city dwellers retire north and want their pastrami.
Marks is promising big things up at his location, conveniently placed just off exit 90 A, right by Dunlop St. W, which is conveniently directly en route to my own cottage. Aside from house smoked pastrami, homemade cabbage rolls, and rice puddings (among other treats), The Pastrami King will offer cottage dwellers the chance to purchase a specially designed cooler bag, and make their deli orders ahead of time for the weekend. That way, you can head up north, swing by the King, pick up your deli, and be ready to sit on the dock, or by the ski hill, and nosh. Sounds like a winner to me.
Here’s a tidbit from their soon to be built website:
We’ll be specializing in Hot Smoked Pastrami Sandwiches on Rye. ( We make our own pastrami daily with a generous crusting of spices and peppercorns ). We’ll also be serving up traditional Corned Beef, Roast Brisket of Beef & Authentic Montreal Smoked Meat sandwiches along with sliced meats by the pound for take out, traditional appetizers, side dishes, homemade salads and comfort food desserts.
I plan to visit this very weekend, as I head up to my cottage, and I suggest those of you who are around Toronto do so as well. As old delis fade, new delis become that much more important. Also, note that Pastrami King will not be kosher by any means. In fact, Marks runs a hog roasting school nearby…so if you love your treyf, this is the place.
Check out the Pastrami King and send Marty your heartfelt congratulations.
