What are some of the best places to grab a bite around campus? Just ask our expert, Brittany! She checks out all of the hot spots on main street and gives us the scoop on restaurants. This week, she gives us a little insight on Newark Deli and Bagel, commonly known as NDB by students here at UD.
If you ask any student at the University of Delaware where you can get a quick, inexpensive bite to eat, it’s likely that their response will be Newark Deli and Bagel (aka, NDB). NDB is so popular with students that lines are virtually out the door during lunch and breakfast hours and you are sure to run into at least one person that you know. It’s a great place to go when you want to grab lunch with your friends or if you need something quick to bring to class.
I decided to try a simple bagel with turkey in order to see if NDB does it well. It was made perfectly. The turkey wasn’t dry and they gave the perfect amount. The most important part, the bagel, was great. It brought me right back home to New York, or as close as you can get without it actually being a New York bagel. The outside had the perfect crunch, while leaving the inside nice and chewy. I definitely wouldn’t hesitate to get a bagel from NDB next time I pass by.
Whenever I ask someone what I should get when I go to NDB, they usually respond by telling me to get the chicken salad. Of course I had to try it since so many people said they loved it.
This chicken salad is perfection, period. It is completely different than any other chicken salad you have ever had. It doesn’t have large chunks of chicken like usual, taking on a consistency that is closer to tuna salad rather than your typical chicken salad. The flavors were absolutely delicious and they even offer a low fat option! This is a must try next time you decide to eat at NDB.
