True to its form, the new outlet at Lavelle Road takes its cues from the locality’s stiff-upper-lipped history and parodies it through its trademark hand-illustrated interiors. Some of the doodles harbor secret stories about the history of the neighbourhood. Lean in close, point your smart phone at the QR codes accompanying an illustration, and you’ll be treated to a fascinating lesson in alternative-urban history.
The menu at Smoke House Deli on Lavelle Road draws on a variety of inspirations, some as old as the locality and others as avant-garde as the Deli itself. It includes smoked prawn and dried fenugreek soup, the SHD ‘son-in-law’ eggs and the tomato and Buffalo mozzarella pizza.
