Quick Stop Kosher Cart found on Park Avenue South!

Funny thing happened on the way to work today.  I took a different route than my normal one in order to get a haircut, when he was too busy I left and stumbled upon this amazing kosher cart parked at the northwest corner of 23rd and Park Avenue!  Quick Stop Kosher‘s menu ranges from a full line of breakfast sandwiches (eggs, bagels, omelettes) to coffees, falafels (he says it is Moshes Falafel, his cart seems to have dissapeared so many this is the replacement?), salads, french fries and something new, WAFFLES!  QSK is certified kosher by Rabbi Shmuel Yaakov Schreiber – The Presburger Hechsher (first time I heard about this hechsher, if anyone has any info about them please let us know).  Their food looks amazing!  Everyone in the area be sure to check him out and support them so they stay in the neighborhood!  We need a kosher joint in Flatiron/Gramercy!

PS. From the looks of their Facebook page they seem to move around the city quite a bit so be sure to follow them there to see where they are going to be!

Hana’s Pizza

Rating (out of 5): 

I had to head up to this part of town tonight because I had a meeting so I figured out I would check out Hanna’s Pizza. The funny thing is as I was thinking about it about earlier today ten minutes later I got a text from the person I last went there with about a year and a half ago, and I hadn’t heard from them in months – ironic.

New Pizza and Wine bar “Basil” opening in Crown Heights

There is a new dairy restaurant in Crown Heights called Basil opening soon.  It is billing itself as a Pizza and Wine bar!  This is a pretty cool concept and I have not heard of it yet in the kosher world so I am excited to check it out!  I tried emailing them also and they didn’t contact me back! Looks like they aren’t interested in free PR!

Little lads is also kosher again

FYI – Little Lads at 120 Broadway (map) is now kosher again under the supervision of Rabbi Israel Mayer Steinberg.

PS. I am seeing a lot of searches wondering about the validity of his kashrut as well as the kosherness of the Vaad Harabonim Lemeshmeret Hakashrut. Anyone reading this care to tell us what you know?

Rosa’s Kosher Pizza

rosas kosher pizzaRating (out of 5):

Best Kosher Pizza. Period.  Well, it comes in a close second to Pizza Sababa on Emek Rafaim in Jerusalem.  But as far as the USA is concerned however it is #1.

Situated on the first floor of the empire state building (easiest access is from 33rd street) you can expect to see a diverse crowd of patrons at this pizzeria at all business hours.

Their variety rivals that of non-kosher restaurants (minus the meat of course). At any given time you can also expect to see about 10 different kinds of pizzas on the table.  Today I went with two regular slices which were fresh from the oven and did not need reheating.  They were amazing!! The taste of the dough/sauce/cheese just has its own kind of flavor and doesn’t taste generic like most all other kosher pizzerias.  At $2.50 a slice its a much better deal than Jerusalem 2 also so why not eat better pizza and save money at the same time.  The fresh mozzarella slice however is the best slice they offer and it is amazing, I highly recommend going with it and a regular slice if it’s your first time there.  Get a side of ranch from the salad bar and dip your pizza in it – you won’t be let down at the awesomeness that will enter your mouth.

Some downsides of this place was that the counter guy was kind of a jerk and impatient with peoples ordering.  It also took a few minutes to pay which in the world of hot pizza every minute counts towards freshness.

Still – the pizza is amazing and you should definitely go there if you are ever in midtown!

PS. Like most kosher places, a dairy restaurant would not be complete with a sushi and salad bar tucked away in the corner and Rosas is no exception to the rule.  I have had a salmon avocado roll as well as a regular salad and they were both up to par and definitely a viable option if you do not feel like having pizza.
