Do not expect one but a thousand flavors at Da Rosa, a warm delicatessen-canteen set in Paris 1st and 7th arrondissements. Running the place, José Da Rosa, who traveled the world for years to look for new and unexpected flavors, ready to make your taste buds fall in love with his cuisine.
And one shall believe the man – a genuine hunter for wonders and trends – knows how to do it as we owe him the arrival of exceptional dishes such as Bellota, Colonnata bacon, Culatello Zibello, cold cuts by Christian Para, Cecina, and skipjack tuna ventresca. No less! Da Rosa is also still the official supplier of many chefs in Paris when it comes to Iberian or Italian hams, olive oil or white taramasalata.
At Da Rosa, dishes awaken the senses with their originality and quality. Naturally, the most wonderful cold cuts from Spain, Portugal and Italy – serrano ham from Trevelez, Parm Ham, lomo iberico bellota, chorizo, Cecina, lardo di collonata – are here and are served thinly sliced in a hearty round of cold cuts (€22), but not only.
In this chic and discreet delicatessen-canteen which address is held like a secret, one can also enjoy raw products, served without fuss: fleshy Taggiasche olives (€3), small Neapolitan artichokes with pesto (€16), or excellent taramasalata to spread over blinis (€14), creamy burrata (€15), or a hearty pan con tomate (€8) served on wonderful slices of country bread.
In addition to cold cuts, seafood is also given pride of place coming in as tartares, club sandwiches, and also raw: Baeri caviar, sardines, tuna ventresca, and Norwegian salmon (€23) will delight fans, so will Manchego ewe’s milk cheese likely to please all tasty cheese lovers.
Da Rosa also serves more sophisticated dishes based on basta, including a delicious pata Negra risotto (€22), a few salads – some being very cheeky.
And before you leave, have a look at the Da Rosa delicatessen corner, very well supplied in Iberian cold cuts, sardines, cheeses and smoked salmon to bring back home. Do not hesitate to pay a visit to Da Rosa, it is worth it.
