If you’ve read a review or just a description on Yelp of a Jewish deli, there are pretty good odds you’ve seen the words “real deal” attached. There is apparently a large problem with inauthentic Jewish deli food in the United States. And at least from the perspective of a non-real-deal Jewish deli connoisseur, Pikesville’s Edmart Deli feels right on the money. Start with a meat knish ($6.50), nibbled and then scarfed on the drive back down Reisterstown Road: perfectly flaky, tasty dough filled with super-finely minced beef lightly spiced, if at all. Delicious. Meanwhile, a simple sandwich of first-cut corned beef ($8.50), light and mild with mustard on rye, proves just right. Unsurprisingly, the pickle accompaniment, not overbearing flavorwise but certainly a full dill, is gone too soon.
