CITY: BERLIN

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Life -

If you hap­pen to hit Berlin you sim­ply must in­dulge in a good old-fash­ioned New York sand­wich with all the trim­mings. Lo­cated in a for­mer Jewish girl’s school (with hall­ways decked in shades of emer­ald green) right in the cen­tre of a trendy neigh­bour­hood, Mogg & Melzer is co-owned by DJs Oskar Melzer and Paul Mogg. The two have cre­ated an artsy lit­tle bistro that serves up a mean sand­wich in funky sur­round­ings fur­nished with Mid-Century finds, such as an­tique Pirkka chairs and a vast se­lec­tion of ta­bles that sits 20, all by the late Fin­nish de­signer ll­mari Ta­pi­o­vaara. Mogg & Melzer of­fers hearty Amer­i­can fare such as beef brisket (salted and coated with a pep­per crust, then made into pas­trami us­ing a smoker in the court­yard), tan­ta­lis­ing cu­cum­bers pick­led not in vine­gar but salt, and bal­samic lentils paired with baked Crot­tin de Chav­i­g­nol and wild herbs. Scrump­tious sand­wiches come in two sizes on fresh rye and are topped with melted Swiss cheese served along­side suc­cu­lent salted pick­les. Love the cof­fee and home­made desserts, the mat­se­ball soup and daily spe­cials, as well as del­i­catessen treats; think kosher salt or wine from Pauly Saal. 11-13, Au­gust­strasse, Berlin.
