Benji's

4156 N. Oakland Ave., Milwaukee, WI - (414) 332-7777

Benji's (formerly Benjamin's) is an old-fashioned deli in a modern shopping area. It is an authentic taste of Milwaukee, by which we mean it offers a reassuring menu of old country ethnic dishes (chicken-in-the-pot, cabbage rolls, fried matzoh) along with plenty of Midwestern Americana, such as a Friday night fish fry, a deluxe hamburger plate, a French Dip sandwich on a poppy seed roll, and that mysteriously-named heartland meal-in-a-skillet, Hoppel Poppel, for which no ethnic group we know has ever taken credit. Hoppel Poppel is a breakfast mélange of sizzled salami chunks, scrambled eggs, browned potato chunks and (optional) onions. Benji's offers it also in a "super" version that adds peppers, mushrooms, and melted cheese to the formula. Either way, it's delicious.
