This is the first in what will be a series of posts generated over my recent trip to Belgium. Call it an appetizer, served with pleasure. Above is the fine Antwerp delicatessen Hoffy's, with the generous proprietor in front of the store. I'm not going to tell you it's in the same class as Fine & Schapiro, reduced as it may be, let alone Katz's, but Mr. Sax swears by it, and there's no greater praise in the world of deli. To follow are a few of Hoffy's neighbors on Lange Kievitstraat.
