Luigi Zuckermann – Berlin’s Best Baguette?

The Roast Beef Sandwich at Luigi Zuckermann, a deli in Berlin

Luigi Zuckermann is a great little deli near Rosenthaler Platz that does the most amazing Roast Beef sandwich.

It has been one of my go to places for lunch since I moved to Berlin.  I’d spotted it when I visited the city on holiday but somehow never found the time to go.

I can remember how surprised I was the first time I ate there when I was presented with this enormous baguette.

As well as a generous helping of juicy meat the sandwich is filled with mayonnaise, lettuce, mustard, tomato, pickles, onions, and a honey and mustard vinaigrette.

I’ve taken friends and family to Luigi Zuckermann and everyone has been unanimous in their appreciation of the flavour and amazement at the size of the sandwiches.


I can also recommend the Homemade Lemonade, which is sharp and deliciously refreshing.  Though, as regular readers will know I favour a beer with just about any meal so I tend to go for Veltins, which they have in the 330ml bottles with the funky design.

It was only after posting about Ruben & Carla that I saw a review from ExBerliner on the Ruben & Carla Facebook page that explains that there is a link in the ownership of these two great little restaurants.

It’s fitting then that I rate the Roast Beef Sandwich at Luigi Zuckermann a very close second to the Pastrami and Turkey Sandwich at Ruben & Carla.

Luigi Zuckermann is at Rosenthaler Strasse 67.  Check out their website for more details and menu.

    My “like” was established at the sight of that ginormous sandwich : that looks so so good. OK, I also “liked” your post, because of the question your post title posed: answers must be sought! 😉

    As Homer (Simpson) once famously said: “… me so hungy!”

      I defy any meat-eaters not to like the look of the sandwich! It will be a tough ask to find anything better but unless I try every baguette in the city I can’t be sure so the question has to be asked.

        Well then, as you’ve implied, the obvious has presented itself: you must go forth and try every baguette in the Hauptstadt. 😉
