Saul’s Sandwiches Balaclava
Some of Melbourne's top deli sanga connoisseurs, Saul's Sandwiches is an enterprise that's always looking forward. They've swooned the hearts and stomachs of many with their Carnegie, Bentleigh, and Hawthorn stores as well as a drive-thru store in South Melbourne for good measure.
The newest opening from the team is smack bang on Carlisle Street in Balaclava and is a culmination of the collective's progress, with this being their flagship store—a Saul's showroom if you will. Speaking to co-owner Leor Haimes he described the new space as "a new iteration, a bit more refined, sophisticated but not really". The Balaclava store will be predominately a takeaway operation with a few spots to park up if you prefer to take your time.
Opening up next week the new location will feature plenty of Saul's classics like their smoked pastrami and chicken parm but with a few bonus extras; the foremost is a decadent new hazelnut-glazed crueller doughnut which is filled with their house-made custard. If you've ever sampled a Saul's custard puff you know how much of a weapon this dessert will prove to be.
To kick off the new store, Saul's will once again be teaming up with Melbourne clothing label, Ichpig for a saucy capsule of fits. There'll also be a launch party to celebrate the store and clothing drop with a limited-edition sanga, ice cold beers and more.
Saul's Balaclava is located 256 Carlisle Street, Balaclava—head over here for all the updates on the opening.
