Dittmer’s is a destination German meat palace, our Meat Adventure today. A fire in January of 2011 has kept this meat emporium closed until now. Dittmer’ Gourmet Meats & Wurst-Haus has a well deserved reputation for making great German style sausages, bacon, ham, various lunch meats and so much more. A lunch counter creates hundreds of different sandwiches for the populace of Los Altos. Dittmer’s has rebuilt their store several blocks away from the original location in a larger, more modern building.
There were lots of meat & cheese samples to celebrate this rebirth. We had our fill and then some. There are lots of refrigerator and freezer cases to browse the enormous selection of meats. This is a candy store for the Mad Meat Genius. Shelves of German products are also displayed for purchase. Finally our number was called.
Sheboygan, Brats and bacon was the foundation of our shopping basket. Several smoked pork chops could not be resisted. A twenty six ounce rib-eye steak beckoned me. This steak was so beautiful it brought a tear to my eye. With a full cart of meat we left Dittmer’s. Welcome back old friend.
