Taam Tov, Great NY Times review

Anybody been there? I called up to ask what hechsher they have, they told me it's under Rabbi Nisannov ? but the meat they use is from these places only, Alle (meal mart) International and Rubashkin. I'm gonna check the place out sometime next week, the food is Bucharen, only bummer is they close at 5pm.

  1. Taam Tov is fantastic, my favorite NYC lunch place.

    1. One of the great little hole in the walls of NY. Make sure you order a samsa, you will not be disapointed. Also, the kaasaa is AMAZING!!!!!

      OK, I am going sometime this week.

      1. LOL @ az. I am coming into the city tomorrow and I just made the decision to try to make it there based on this thread. :)

        1. Desi, I used to eat there at least twice a week when i worked in the Rockefeller Center area, and I did not have one bad meal there. My usual meal (went with a friend) was, pot of Green Tea (real brewed, not bags), a platter of chumas, side of bread, one lamb ribs skewer, one laffa skewer w/kasha, a samsa and all this came to a little over $10. Also, you can have a soup and a samsa and be filled for the day. My artiries did not approve, but my taste buds sure did.

          1. My son met me in NYC this past Friday and had seen the article in the times (we get it delivered daily in Toronto also!). We had an opportunity to rush over to Taam Tov around 2:30 on Friday for a late lunch. I was thrilled they were serving so late before Shabbos. Suffice it to say it was really cheap and we loved it. We had lamb kebobs, humous and pitas. Unfortunately, the special bread they served (the name escapes me) was all gone. We had a chance to talk to the owner who was really charming. I was amazed at the price of the lamb kebobs given how expensive kosher lamb is.

            There is a guy with a sandwich board outside the restaurant advertising. I was not sure if he had always been there, or if it was a result of the increased demand from the article and the fact that it isn't the easiest place to find.
