Back in early March, a reader sent in a tip to watch for a new deli shop from the Crenshaw District, called Mike’s Deli, that was opening along First Street in the Little Tokyo and Civic Center area. Now, Mike’s Deli has been open for a little longer than a month and has added another eatery to a growing neighborhood in Little Tokyo. Already, it seems like Yelp reviewers have embraced the new location with 4.5 out of 5 stars.
Thanks to one of my readers for pointing this out to me the other day that Mike’s Deli plans to open up in Little Tokyo next to LA Chicken on First Street. In case you’re not familiar with Mike’s Deli, there is already a well-established and popular location in LA’s Crenshaw District on Slauson Ave. A quick search on Google and you’ll see that Mike’s Deli is well-loved on Yelp and Urbanspoon. Yelp reviewers rave about Mike’s Deli as serving “THE best sandwiches in LA” and having “Awesome-sized portions” of Boar’s Head meat.
