How is this place? Trying to find a pastrami sandwich that can compete with Langer's that's closer to home.

    I have been there a couple of times and have tried the Middle Eastern salads and the White Fish Salad. They are as good or better than what I am used to getting. The bagels are H&H flown in from New York. Haven't tried the pastrami yet.

        MR. PICKLES KOSHER DELI at 13354 Washington Blvd. Los Angeles.
        By the way, any ex-NY'ers remember Bernstein's on Essex? Any Kosher Chinese in L.A.?

          There is a kosher chinese place on Wilshire near Cresent Heights, I think it is called Hunan Taste. I've been there, it was fair.

            Isn't there a kosher Chinese place somewhere on Fairfax called Genghis Cohen? I know I've passed it many times, but I can't place it.

              Genghis Cohen is not kosher. Did you think it was just from the name?

                No, I thought I saw it referred to in one of the Jewish publications I get, or that its food was being served at some kosher meeting. I guess I was mistaken. Sorry.

                if you are looking for a good kosher chinese restaurant, try "chinese kabob" on pico (around 9000 block) the food is awesome and the portions are great. to our dismay, we didn't find general tao chicken on the menu. we ended up ordering the sesame chicken - and by fluke it had the same flavor and texture as general tao chicken. we also had the beef hunan. both dishes were served with vegetables and steamed rice.

                although the food is yummy - the service is awful - so don't go on a day where your patience is thin. our drinks arrived after our main course, and we had to wait for 15 minutes for the bill.
