[GERMAN] Behold, the Königreich of German foods in Portland: equal parts bakery, deli, cafe and grocery. You’ll find everything here, from schnitzel to spaetzle to streusel küchen. Cases of imported beers sit in front of a deli counter showcasing classic wursts across from a short aisle packed with Dr. Oetker’s baking necessities, cake mixes, popular German candies and condiments. And then there are the two glass cases lined with poppyseed streudels, fat eclairs, chocolate-covered “pig ears,” linzers and so much more. The three young employees were constantly busy when we visited, helping an elderly couple find the right “rye that is lighter, a real European rye” bread, listening to customers reminisce about their last trip to Bavaria and offering a particularly fussy woman thin-but-not-too-thin slices of meat.
Grocery list: Weiss wurst, quark, Bitburger beer, Milchreis packets, Hanuta.
