The city of Ostrander, Minn. is fortunate to have a new business in town. The business, owned by Amanda Siskow, opened on December 2, 2013 and has been the newest “hot spot” in town.

The new combination business is called Siskow Deli and Blown Away Salon. A deli and salon in the same building may not be an ordinary combination but for Siskow it is extraordinary. She is happy to be working two careers that she loves and being able to do them in the same place.

As if the deli and salon are not enough to stay busy, Siskow also has convenience items and an area for consignments in the building.

The deli offers breakfast, lunch and dinner. Breakfast items include waffles, breakfast sandwiches, cinnamon rolls, cereal, muffins, and other favorite breakfast foods.

Daily lunch specials have been “very popular,” said Siskow, with area residents enjoying the variety of noon meals that have been offered. Siskow stated that the lunch specials are mostly comfort food such as hot beef sandwiches, turkey with potatoes and gravy, goulash, and creamed chicken over biscuits to name a few of the lunches the deli has offered.

Siskow said she serves approximately 20 lunches per day right now and stated that is “pretty good,” especially for just having recently opened. Customers really enjoy the biscuits and gravy special on Sundays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and is reasonably priced at $4.99 for a full lunch and $2.99 for a half lunch.

Other customer favorites are the wraps and club sandwiches. Recently Siskow had a peppered turkey wrap as a lunch special which people really enjoyed. The coffee at the Siskow Deli seems to be another favorite especially on cold winter mornings. The deli offers other great choices including soups and sandwiches such as BLT’s.

Siskow’s restaurant skills come from years of working in the restaurant her mother owned in Alaska while she was growing up. She enjoys serving good food to people and loves to be around people which explains why Amanda also has a passion for running a salon.

With 10 years experience working in salons, both her own and others, she is excited to have her own again. Blown Away Salon is a “full service” salon for men, women, and children, stated Siskow, offering cuts, color, highlights, and perms.

Siskow also has convenience items on hand including staples such as bread, milk, eggs, flour, and .....
