Lighthouse Delicatessen Gets New Menu… Try The Classic Reuben Pastrami!!!

Yesterday I was invited to the Lighthouse Delicatessen in Hawi for lunch and it was the first time I’ve ever been to this “little hole in the wall” establishment.

They recently changed their menu so I got to try something from their new menu.



They let me sample a “Classic Reuben – Pastrami Style Sandwich” … except I asked them to take out the sauerkraut as I don’t like the stuff and the person standing next to me told me that the sauerkraut  was what makes it a Reuben… but I didn’t mind it being just a pastrami sandwich.

Most people that know me… know I love pastrami sandwiches!  This sandwich was one of the best pastrami sandwiches I have ever had and I’m not just saying it because it was free!

One of the other folks that were with us ordered the meatball sandwich and they also stated that it was really good!

The only problem for me… is that the restaurant is located so far away from where I live!  Its  located in The Kohala Trade Center at 55-3419 Akoni Pule Highway in Hawi next to of course “Lighthouse Liquors”.

The Lighthouse Delicatessen is located right next to Lighthouse Liquors

I was told that the reason the restaurant opened was because the folks at Lighthouse Liquors next door wanted a place to eat so they opened up their own deli.

Besides sandwiches and ready to eat items you can also purchase deli meats by the pound.

I will definitely be eating there the next time I’m in Hawi.  I just wish that we had one on this side of the island!  It’s a bit more expensive then subway… but you get what you pay for and this is definitely worth the extra chunk of change
