OMG! Leave the Bacon in the Potatoe Soup, and every other thing you put in it! If I ever hit the Lotto, I would definitely Hire you as my Personal Chef, I love your Food! Everything that I have ordered has been delicious! My mouth waters (actually foams at the sides) when I think of your Pumkin Rossato, The only thing that I request is that you have MORE Specials Daily so that I can have the pleasure of eating another one of your Masterpieces'
Seriously I am like a Crack Addict for Hot Potatoe, I Phene for his cooking.

Can you make another Rossato this week?

I also love the pumkin Crab Soup, OMG it is delicious!

I cannot believe that this place has been here for 2 years and I am just eating there now! I wasted 2 years of my taste buds doing the Macarena,

Some people have said that it definitely is "Bill" before him it wasn't so Hot -

It definitely is Hot Now though =)

Really?

Then sign me up as a supporter!

(Hey, you're not bringing the casino debate into a non-casino thread, are you?)

don't get me wrong, i love

don't get me wrong, i love bacon

but not everyone eats red meat or meat at all.
and it seems silly to cut off vegetarians from eating the potato soup because its so good.

I remember freshman year of college when my usually talkative conservative Jewish roommate was rendered speechless encountering a ham-and-cheese bagel. Finally, about a minute later he said, "This is just wrong on so many levels."

(some people may not be aware that 25 years ago, a lot of non-Jews in the US didn't even know what a bagel was and it was often considered an ethnic specialty food)

lol - i guess the bagel aspect of it sent it over the top (btw, it's funny how in the us bagels are identified as jewish food; for example in israel few people had heard of or eaten bagels until recently)

My mom always stopped at martins on kensington ave on her way home from work about once a week when we were kids. Is that the one your talking about? I'm irish/italian and we always ate bagles growing up. As a kid i always thought they were an irish thing.

Yep.

That's like many Irish customs or Italian customs -
turns out their Irish-American or Italian-American,
but unknown in their homelands.

Chinese food is a perfect example of that.

There are very few now. I'd imagine the combination of many jewish people leaving for the suburbs after the race riot(s) of the 60's with their kids growing up and living the suburban dream meant lots of these places closed either to economics or retirement (the kids didn't want to run them). I'd imagine the large number of asian places hitting the city will eventually go through the same type of pattern in 30-50 years.

For me, it was good Jewish rye from Kaplans...used to be a line running outside the door every Sunday morning, much worse around the holidays. Now I'm amazed if there's 3 people ahead of me in line at any time when I stop in. Guess the combination of "rye" bread in supermarkets and a large influx of people for whom good jewish rye isn't a gastronomic delight nor an emotional comfort food (I always went with my father as a kid) means the walk in business isn't like it used to be.

Thankfully, SWMBO has fallen in love with both the bread and the salt sticks they sell.. beautiful and with good taste!

Are they good?

stein's picture

they aren't the greatest

they aren't the greatest bagels i've ever had, but they are pretty solid. just make sure you eat them on sunday. they do not have much of a freshness halflife.

i assume they aren't baked in house because they are put out in paper bags, but maybe they are and thats just the easiest way to display them?

Kaplan's isn't as good as when I was a Kid, but I don't think anything is as good as when I was a Kid =)

I still find the best bagels

I still find the best bagels in Philadelphia to be from the same place I started buying them 25 years ago - The New York Bagel Bakery on Haverford, just off City Line. (Yeah, it's not in the neighborhood... but, wow, are they good.)

A great Jewish deli, too, was the one in Wynnewood Shopping Center - but it has been years since I've been there, and I don't know if they exist anymore.
