Challah From Jewish Bakery in Trenton/Princeton?
- Rich Pawlak
With the abrupt closing of Weinstein's deli here in Lawrenceville, NJ a few weeks ago, we are left with no good source of GOOD Challah for the holidays. Theirs came froma NY bakery, we were told over the years. They were also the source for good matzo ball soup and stuffed cabbage.
Any suggestions? I'm relatively new to the area and trying to accomodate my Jewish better half before she goes insane.
Thanks in advance!
Try your local Shop Rite, which may have a kosher store-in-a-store which will have a variety of challahs, also probably from NY.
Places to get challah in Center City Philly:
Metropolitan Bakery (regular and saffron-raisin)
Le Bus (will have round challahs for Rosh Hashanah)
Irene's Bakery on 20th above Walnut
Swiss Pastry Shop (owned by Moishe's Addison Bakery family) on 19th near Chestnut.
Bravermans Bakery in Reading Terminal (same family as Le Bus)
Some of the above chains may have stores near you, or maybe there are stores that carry their bread. Thank you.

NOT SO! Completely different. There is a Le Bus in the Terminal (At least I think it's still there) and David Braverman owns Le Bus but he doesn't own Braverman's in the Terminal.
I used to work with David's Mom.
