Add:356 Xikang Rd
It is a surprise to find this gourmet store on Xikang Road, close to Xinzha Road. It includes a small upper floor where customers can sit down to home-made sandwiches and coffee. Downstairs in the deli are foods and beverages imported from Europe, including Spanish and Italian hams, cheeses, snacks and wines. Many customers come especially for the organic beer, jam and potato chips.
"We cut the ham on the premises for customers and make sandwiches and coffee with the ingredients on sale in the store," says Liz Chen, co-owner of the store. Shanghai native Chen opened Deli de Li in May of 2011 with her Italian husband Enrico Farinati.
