Potchke Deli and KatiRoll Wala serve ethnic cuisine Downtown Knoxville

I had been on the lookout ahead to hoping Potchke Deli, very substantially since their March debut. Due to the fact it’s only open for breakfast and lunch hours, I knew I’d have to do this a person by myself (The Grub Wife or husband has a authentic occupation). But when I learned that KatiRoll Wala had a short while ago loaded the empty vendor space at Marble Metropolis Current market (and given that The Wife or husband is not a enthusiast of Indian delicacies), it only built feeling for me to tackle equally eateries in a single gasoline-preserving journey. Right after all, Potchke Deli, which is in the rear of the Regas Constructing, is only footsteps absent from MCM.

I begun out at the deli, wherever an staff handed me a menu upon my solution to the counter. There are not a great deal of items to form by way of, with most falling below the babka, blintz and bialy categories. Babkas are sweet, braided breads, and I have been curious to try one particular since I first viewed Seinfeld in the ’90s. I obtained a Lesser Babka ($4) — a slice rather of an complete loaf — and chose chocolate about cinnamon.
