Rosa’s Kosher Pizza

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.

QUICK REVIEW! I spent all morning today in line and then watching the taping of a new Jerry Seinfeld show called “The Marriage Ref” and was in desperate need for a fast lunch.  I walked by this place many times so I figured today was the day I would try it.  First impressions were good – the young employee was extremely nice and had a big smile on his face the whole time.  Since I am trying to lose weight for a wedding I decided to go with the salad.  At $8.99 it is about normal for a kosher salad in NYC.  Unfortunately this places idea of salad was way off.  The taste was very good but it looked to be more like what the other NYC vendor carts offer in terms of food.  The salad was about 4-6 ounces of meat, rice,  and a scoop full of lettuce and pickles.  The burgers looked really good although the employee said they weren’t like normal burgers – I plan on going back to try them again.
