Fond: Lunch & Deli

This is an if only post.  If only I tried Fond when it was first recommended to me.  If only I tried Fond the second time it was recommended to me.  If only I stopped by Fond a few months ago when I was driving down 275 and it crossed my mind as I glanced at the exit.  No more if onlys for me. I finally went to Fond Lunch and Deli with a dear friend and I loved it.  Truly blown away by the service, the flavors, and the menu options, I went back a week later with more friends.

Many locally sourced ingredients.

Fond: Lunch and Deli is small but mighty.  The location, just off 275 at the Montgomery Rd. exit, is a bit hidden, but it’s a gem.  There are so many things to appreciate about Fond; let me highlight a few:

  • family owned and family operated
  • lots of locally sourced product
  • organic, vegan, vegetarian, and meat options available
  • bright, bold, creative dishes and unique flavors
  • hummus made in at least five flavors (get a sampling with chips)
  • open for breakfast and lunch
  • dill pickles made in-house (spicy)

I loved all the hummus, but I bought some of that beet hummus to bring home. Isn’t it beautiful?

Langue et Joue (beef tongue and pork jowl) sandwich.

I was nervous about the beef tongue, but I’m a when in Rome kind of girl so when I heard it was one of their specialities, I went for it.  The flavor and tenderness of the meat was incredible.  I loved the addition of the jam.  In fact, my two girlfriends tried it and loved it, too.  I think tongue is one of those things you just don’t think about too much.  Just eat.  Luckily, I went to Fond with friends who like to share because I enjoyed each dish equally. I kept being surprised by each bite.  I’ve not had anything that tastes similar.

Goetta Clue (goetta, egg, and some kind of amazing cheese).

Bob Saag-et tacos (a take on saag paneer) with pickled kohlrabi.

I mean, you can’t walk away without trying a cookie or two, right?!

At Fond, the food is fresh and bold in flavor, but the customer service is just as impressive.  When I ordered at the counter, all my questions were addressed in such a kind way and the staff remembered our names.  In a nutshell, the menu at Fond is unique and the owner, Ethan, has a way with food and people.  Who doesn’t love a place that’s healthy and jam packed with flavor.  Fond lunch and deli is a real find! I can’t wait to take my husband.

GO THERE (Fond)!   TRY THAT (Am Asian Tacos, Goetta Clue, Mint Green Tea)!
