Originally from Kiev, Ukraine, Black Forest Deli’s mother-daughter team of owners has been bringing Eastern Europe’s vast culinary traditions to Bethlehem since 2003, earning a nod from Bethlehem Patch readers as one of the area’s best eateries. As Russian music plays in the background, they serve up a menu of homemade borscht, pierogies, and halupkis (stuffed cabbage rolls), as well as delectable sides including macaroni salad. Those seeking more customary Western tastes can grab an italian sub or the arzunian panini filled with turkey, avocado, tomatoes, cheese, spinach, and honey mustard. The deli can also supply its specialty dishes to large events such as weddings, birthday parties, or chain-gang reunions.
