This Week's Best Food Deals, Starring Mike Anderson's, The Fish and a Lot of Pastrami
Foodbitch's inboxes fill each day with a metric shit-ton of offers, flash sales and discounts. Here are some of this week's best.
Gilt Taste: Pastranomy pastrami sandwich pack for $78.99 Are you into deli meats? I mean really into deli meats? No, I'm not telling you to hit up your closest Central Market, though they stock quality stuff for sure. This deal is for a pastrami sandwich pack from the obviously food-legitimate Pastranomy out of California. The pack contains enough pastrami (3.5 lbs.), rye bread, honey mustard and deli mustard to serve a pack of rabid New York transplants jonesing hard for decent deli here in Dallas. And bonus: This deal is 20 percent off until 10 a.m. Wednesday, which should help cover the $14.95 shipping. Ouch.
Gilt City Dallas: 40% off a 1-year membership to Rouxbe Cooking School If you already cook at home, or you'd like to learn the skills to get started, a year of online cooking courses is a great way to get the basics down and impress your friends and family. Besides, learning how to take down a giant carrot and transform it into tiny, perfect cubes is intensely satisfying. Trust me. Ends Tuesday at 9 a.m.
Daily Candy Deals: $20 for $40 worth of kitchenware at Epicurious Shop Turns out Epicurious, the folks who brought me many a successful recipe when the ones on the Food Network site were just too Deen-y, have an online shop filled with cooking equipment for the home cook. Who knew? If you've already been looking for a Le Creuset in the perfect shade of cornflower blue, the time is now at half off through late Wednesday.
Groupon: $20 for $40 worth of sushi at The Fish This feels like a great opportunity to try out The Fish if you haven't already. The strip off McKinney Avenue that contains it is becoming a little culinary go-to stretch featuring a great wine selection at Cork, NY-style pizza at Grimaldi's and fancified Lebanese fare at Baboush. The Fish rounds out the bunch with somewhat sexy Japanese. Go hit up one or all of those, soon.
Groupon: $15 for $30 at Mike Anderson's BBQ Barbecue? In Dallas? Yeah, I know. But Mike's 'cue is solid and when you get a hankerin', I'd much rather you go there than the closest Dickey's. Get you some at half off. Bring a friend, or a gurney, if you intend to spend that $30 on your lunch.
