Here in Radlett on the Northern fringes of London’s suburbs we’re getting ready for an awesome deli smackdown. Yummies, the incumbent – just renovated and under new ownership – is getting ready to take on nervous-looking newcomer Tzar, a few doors down the road and now sporting a sightly defensive banner saying “it happened here first”.
Can both survive, even thrive, in a community of 8,000? Will Yummies exploit the home advantage (they’ve been selling bagels and Chollas here for years) and see off the pretender? Can Tzar’s slightly fancier produce (and tables to sit at while you’re eating it!) overturn the status quo and triumph? It could go either way. Gripping stuff.
