Boston has a sizable population who grew up finding comfort in hearty deli staples, but in recent years almost all of the area’s old-school joints have vanished. Enter Kendall Square’s celebrated modern-era deli, Mamaleh’s.
At Time Out Market Boston, the Mamaleh’s team brings its scrumptious smoked fish platters and juicy pastrami sandwiches—perfect for a filling meal or a quick nosh—across the river to the Fenway.
Co-owners Rachel and Tyler Sundet produce hand-made bagels and hormone-free, antibiotic-free meats (expertly cured, smoked, and roasted in-house), perfect for an anytime snack. Weekend warriors can stop in for an egg sandwich on a house-made challah roll, or a hand-rolled bagel topped with whitefish or a schmear.
"Pre-internet days, Time Out Magazine was our go to for cultural information and happenings when we traveled," says Rachel Sundet. "We see this as a great opportunity to expand across the river and share a condensed version of our deli with the Boston community."
Veterans of the industry, the culinary couple take pride in the craft behind their menu highlights.
"We make our bagels from scratch daily - from dough to hand-rolling to boiling baking and bring straight to Time Out Market. For our whitefish salad we source fresh pollock from Wulf’s Fish; we cure and smoke the fish in house, then dress and mix in small batches with red onions, chives, and a few other secret ingredients," says Rachel. "We are also super excited about our Chocolate Cake. It's traditional, chocolatey and deceivingly simple. I use Valrhona Chocolate in the frosting, giving it just enough oomph to make you want to come back for more day after day."
