Challah in San Francisco
Where can I get a good Challah in SF for some new year celebrations tonight? So far, I've been underwhelmed by the selection of jew food here in San Francisco (bagels, corned beef, matzo balls etc.) Am I going to have to travel back to South Florida for a good knish?
Oh, no. I liked that challah. And if you went after six pm you could get two loaves for the price of one. I hope they find someone new.
Yeah, the quality of Jewish food in SF isn't up to Florida standards. Where have you tried so far so we don't repeat.
Irvings gets a lot of good mentions, but maybe someone can say where it is sold these days
ACME's challah is very good, though to be fair I don't know much about Jewish food (I do know good bread though!).
You'd best go to the ACME stores in Berkeley or in SF Ferry Building, and call ahead if you want to make sure they have some left!
Noe Valley Bakery on 24th Street has round challah. I think they make plain, poppy, sesame and raisin. Bay Bread also has challah. I don't know if it is round. And yes, unfortunately, you will need to travel for a good knish.
