Shelsky’s Smoked Fish
141 Ct St, Boerum Hill, NY
I have come here multiple times already to try their special sandwiches as well as their simpler items. The first thing I tried was the Brooklyn Native which is
Gaspe Nova, Smoked Whitefish Salad, Pickled Herring, Sour Pickle, Served on a Bialy (you can do it on a bagel as well). It was a party in my mouth! So many flavors of savory, sweet, sour all wrapped up in one sandwich. The portion was not huge, but I was super full at the end of it. Another time I tried the Dr. Goldstein Special which is
Duck Fat-Laced Chopped Liver & Apple Horseradish Sauce, Served Between 2 Schmaltz Fried Potato Latkes. Yes it is definitely as heavenly and gluttonous as it sounds. It was on special so I had it for almost half the price and I am glad I got to try it. Their chopped liver is some of the best I have had and the latkes were just delicious. They really put care into their sandwiches and the quality of the ingredients is just great. Finally my last visit I had a simple chopped liver on a bialy. You really taste the liver and the bialy was nice and fresh.
Prices are a bit on the steep side, but you get what you pay for and if you get to try a sandwich on special it is worth it. I will definitely be back to try more items and when I feel like treating myself to something super delicious for breakfast/lunch.
