The Real Italian Deli is one of those places everybody wishes they had around the corner from their apartment. The small, order-at-the-counter spot is in a rundown strip mall a few miles outside of downtown Palm Springs, but they make some of our favorite sandwiches in town. You’re going to want the parma sandwich (prosciutto and mozzarella) on a housemade torpedo roll with a side of their mac salad. Bonus: There’s a grocery component here too if you’re in the mood to cook up an Italian feast later tonight at the vacation rental.
