Pauly's Deli OG Steak Sandwich ($26)

A humble kiosk in Sydney’s western suburbs is serving up the “best” steak sandwich that’s been 35 years in the making.

Pauly Davelis, of Pauly’s Deli in the Greenway complex in Wetherill Park, is the proud son of Greek parents who ran a takeaway near Mount Druitt for more than three decades.

At its sleek, neon-blue-lit kiosk, it serves sandwiches “with a hint of spicy banter” that food lovers flock from far and wide to get their hands on.

His OG steak sandwich ($26) was one of the first things his father taught him once he was on the grill, he told Good Food.

It’s a no-nonsense hunk of white bread, slathered in BBQ sauce and stuffed with grilled Scotch fillet, balanced with a generous dose of fresh shredded lettuce, beetroot, tomato, cheese and caramelised onion.

Dubbed the “best” sanga steak in all of Australia and a menu favourite, it proves that classic food, done right, never goes out of style.

“OMG let’s go today,” one person said after seeing a photo of the famous OG.

Customers also love Pauly’s GOAT sandwich ($22), which features panko-crusted chicken schnitzel and cheese melting into Pauly’s special homemade mayonnaise, lettuce, tomato, and white toast.

The Stallion substyle sandwich ($22) also has a dedicated following.

The sub is an intensely satisfying option with mounds of prosciutto, ham, salami and soft folds of provolone combined with roasted pepper, a heady olive tapenade, sundried tomato and pesto on a toasted sub roll.

One customer said these ‘sensational little Deli-style sandwiches… will blow your mind.’

“The lettuce cut like this is also perfect, I feel like everything was well thought out, amazing to see and taste,” said another.

Although one customer complained that his sandwich was a little salty, another reviewer said he would “100 percent come back.”

Pauly’s menu includes huge breakfast sandwiches, salads, pastries, and syrup-sweetened coffee and iced tea.

Wild Mushroom Sourdough Toast with Scrambled Eggs and Homemade Hollandaise Sauce is also a favorite.

And the divine galaktobouriko (Greek custard cake), a dreamy rice pudding, a cold Greek-style frappé and a vibrant Vietnamese coffee also do their part to differentiate this kiosk.

The atmosphere is chatty, fast and friendly, and customers love that the sandwiches are made to order.

One reviewer who had to share his enormous sandwich with his father said his hard-to-impress father has now become a Pauly convert, too.

Pauly’s Deli is at the kiosk 5/1187 The Horsley Drive, Wetherill Park.

It is open Monday to Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and Sundays from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
