Moody’s Delicatessen & Provisions

To be clear, the word ” delicatessen” in Moody’s moniker is not meant to imply eats of the kosher Jewish variety (though after a bite of the piled-high pastrami sandwich or peppery corned-beef version, you may be convinced otherwise). No, this Waltham destination sets out to celebrate every kind of animal protein, with the most astonishing breadth of fastidiously house-cured and smoked meats you’ll find anywhere in the area (all of which, of course, still pair perfectly with a side of house bagel chips and a can of Dr. Brown’s cream soda).

    Great Deli..
    Is it just me or is everything spicy…
    Anything sweet?
    Love the paper thin prosciutto…but even this is spicy when it’s usually salty.
    Very helpful gent behind the counter who said “yep…the owner would put tobasco in his coffee if he could”.
    So…to the owners…some like it sweet!
    Best of luck…great Deli!
