Lox In A Box
Much like its venue name suggests, Lox In A Box marries up two winning concepts—bagels and deli feeds and the perfect convenience of takeaway.
Inspired by traditional Jewish delis, this takeaway joint is only open just three days a week—Friday through to Sundays (arguably the best days of the week). Its retro shopfront features a deli menu scribbled on butcher’s paper taped to the window, and you won’t find more than a couple of benches out the front to soak up all the vintage vibes.
On the no-frills menu there are fine standouts like a salt-beef bagel (loaded with mustard and pickles) and a vegetarian stack pumped with actual jalapeno schmear. You can also expect the staple lox affair with one of the best herb cream-cheeses Sydney has ever been privy to.
And to build on your feed, you’ll also be able to pick from more than 20 sides to throw into your takeaway lox box including “Nanna’s smashed avo” and an extra creamy potato salad.
Lox In A Box even stocks bits and pieces to DIY your own dreamy lunch, like egg mayo, chopped liver and the iconic babka (twisted yeast dough with cinnamon or choc).
To make things even better, Lox In A Box also does deliveries which means you can order these bad boys online straight to your door. There's a "Bagel Meal Deal" which consists of six bagels (of your choice), pickles, chips and a drink, plus a "Build Your Own" package where you can go hard on ordering any bagel, fillings, sides including cucumber salad and Pepe Saya butter, a whole heap of dips and schmears like hummus and taramasalata and a bunch of fresh salads too. You'll also be able to order a Shabbox (suitably only available to deliver on Fridays) which can be built to feed as little as two and as many as16 people, with challah, house lox, dips, pickles and Pepe Saya Butter.
As for the coffee deal here, it’s batch brew and from the caffeine kings themselves: Reuben Hills.
