George’s Deli

It’s hard not to notice the bright-orange deli that has popped up along Marine Parade in Kingscliff. The striking exterior belongs to George’s Deli, an ode to American toasties, delicious doughnuts and Filipino flavours. On the board you will find four toasties, including the ‘Ain’t Reuben’, which is the venue’s take on the classic using dill sauce instead of sauerkraut and pastrami instead of corned beef. In the cabinet, you’ll spy a drool-inducing selection of doughnuts in a curious array of flavours. A nod to the owners’ Filipino heritage, the flavours include ‘Ube’, which is filled with a bright purple cream and made with purple yam, and ‘Ensaymada’, which is traditionally a sweet dough that Johnny has reinvented as a slightly savoury-style doughnut stuffed with cream cheese. Wash it down with a sip from Tweed Heads’ Ground Control or a vibrant matcha.
