I don’t typically blog about local places, it’s not that I don’t want to aid with some friendly free advertising, it’s that there really isn’t anything around that thrills me. Especially in the food industry being as I feel just about everywhere you go is the same – bad food that’s over-seasoned so that your taste buds think you’re eating something somewhat delicious.
However, this is not the case for Casapulla’s South in Rehoboth Beach, DE. Sean and I eat there regularly when we’re in DE, we would be there at least once a week while we lived down here, and we’ve gone about 4 times since we’ve come back down for our visit. Granted, we were only supposed to be here for two weeks but wound up staying for a full month – but ehh, things happen.
My reason for liking them as much as I do is mainly for their meats – Boar’s Head. It’s a hard find in DE, a state that’s over-run with off brands and Deitz & Watson. I prefer god ‘ol Boar’s Head for just about everything. That’s one plus. The other is their bread, it’s a nice soft artisan bread with a crisp outer shell, it’s not the crap they throw at you at Subway or Quiznos, this is GOOD fresh baked bread (baked daily). They don’t have an entire case of their counter dedicated to thirty different possible side dishes and they live under the K.I.S.S. (keep it simple stupid) methodology when it comes to preparing their food. It’s a clean “I’d make this for myself at home, but don’t have the time” kind of joint. It’s almost completely sandwiches, however they do have a freezer case with Italian goodies such as Meatballs, Stuffed Shells, Sausage & Peppers, etc. I personally know how to make all of that for myself, but that’s what an Italian upbringing will do for you. BUT, if you don’t have the kitchen savvy know-how that I do, highly recommend picking up their Stuffed Shells. They’re on par with most Italian grandmothers, and at $30 for a HUGE TRAY, you can’t go wrong – especially in Tax Free DE!
I highly recommend ‘em.
