.…Baron, Polish & Brazilian Deli
Introducing Artur and Neade, owners of Baron Polish and Brazilian Deli, a husband and wife team from Poland and Brazil. Baron is an established West Norwood shop, which for 3 years was near Floral Hall. They moved to their current larger premises 8 months ago.
Baron sell mainly Polish and Brazilian foods and have a loyal customer base; mainly from West Norwood but also travelling from Streatham and as far flung as Bromley. Staff speak English, Portuguese, Spanish or Polish to cater for customers from a range of nations. Due to customer demand, Baron have recently started to stock some Hungarian and Roumanian products.
Baron have been recommended by WeNo locals for its cuts of beef and hams. Artur gave our intrepid FEAST reporter a guided tour of the shelves. He confirmed their meat is a big attraction; particularly fresh pork , Polish hams (popular with English customers who commented how tasty it was) and Brazilian cuts of beef which Brazilian customers buy to barbecue. In the freezer compartment, there were among other products, Acai frozen purees to blend for smoothies. Acai berry (from the Acai Palm) is a popular Brazilian fruit believed to have health giving properties. Artur said Acai its a favourite with Jiu Jitsu martial arts practitioners!
Polish honey also came highly recommended as well as bread delivered from a London Polish bakery…the rye bread with plum looked good.
