Kingston Eats: Golden Rooster Delicatessen

This was the very first restaurant we stepped into when we first pull in Kingston.  It was near closing time so we never got a chance to try it.  Three and a half years later, I finally remembered about this deli and had the chance to eat in this classic staple deli in Kingston.  The owner is of German background.  Line is always long here but service is very quick and efficient.  Get a ticket number and wait in line until you are called.  The eat-in part is self-served.  Golden Rooster Deli serves very solid eastern-European food.  They also have their own tiny bakery section, and during seasonal times you can get a chance to buy specialty products (eg stollen, hot cross buns etc).  The shop also sells many eastern-European packaged food and confectioneries.  You can also buy good quality deli meat, sausages, and bread (with many varieties) here.

This is a Christmas time specialty.  I finally opened it in March, and it was still incredibly moist.  It also tastes very good, just like how a good loaf of fruitcake should taste like 🙂
