Who doesn’t love a bagel?! Especially when it's topped with 10-day cured, 12-hour smoked brisket and coming out of the kitchen in of one of the best cafes in Auckland, Al's Deli. The man behind this fine Auckland CBD establishment is Aleks Lazic, a Montreal native with a knack for creating authentic, insanely delish deli food (think cheesy poutine and pomegranate BBQ ribs). Luckily for all you city slickers, he just opened a second Al's Deli in O’Connell Street, catering to all your midday hunger pangs and cravings.
