Rogacki Delicatessen in Berlin Oct 7,2009
While in Berlin I visited this deli after reading a favorable review in NY Times.A Berlin institution for almost 80 years running, this delicatessen and Imbiss is famous for its seafood, with over 70 kinds of fresh fish (many still alive) to choose from, which can be prepared as you watch.This isn’t your average deli. Housed in a former stable, with a staff of 125, Rogacki has separate counters for each food group: 150 kinds of cheese, over 200 varieties of cured and fresh meats, bread, poultry, sausage, beer and wine, cured and smoked fish, and dips and salads. These can be made up into gift baskets if you fancy, ordered for parties or bought as is and munched on the way home.
They also deliver if you don’t want to leave the house, although it’s not the same as standing in shop surrounded by mountains of delicious items and lots of difficult but welcome choicesSince 1928, when the Rogackis, a German-Polish family, first opened it, the place has been a temple devoted to the food one expects to find in Berlin. .I ate there delicious oysters followed up by white dry wine,will be back
