Authentic German Butcher A Real Treat For Foodies
The minute I walked through the door my senses were assaulted by the visual spectacle of excited patrons eagerly awaiting their turn and the aroma of smoked meats. Like a child in a candy shop, I wanted to try all kinds of interesting food handsomely displayed behind the counters that spanned from one end of the store to the other. I scuttled back and forth feverishly reading each label to decide what I wanted. What started out as steak for dinner, ended up as a little of this a little of that: Homemade frankfurters (Not the American slang hot-dogs, this is after all an authentic German Butcher), Italian sausages, potato salad, thick sliced smoked bacon and aged Prime-Rib Eye. I had to stop myself from ordering the Kielbasa and liverwurst too, I mean how much can two people eat?
The staff was not only courteous but extremely knowledgeable too. In fact, one of the owners spent a long time explaining to me the differences between the many cuts of meat. In contrast to today's large supermarket, impersonal approach to mass retailing, this certainly was a welcomed change of pace. I'll be back for sure, to try the liverwurst, stuffed pork chops, skirt steak, prepared foods, rice pudding...someone please stop me! BTW, the aged-Rib Eye Cowboy steak was super tender and tasty and the potato salad fresh and smothered in fresh dill.
It's 9 am, time to make the bacon!
