Latkes in Austin?

Does any restaurant do Hannakuh food? I'm not Jewish, I just really like latkes.

  1. Manny Hattans and Katzs for two. I think they are on their menu year round. Neither anywhere close to home made.

      Thanks, PappyAustin. I was hoping some restaurant might be doing them special for Hannukah. I might have to break down and make my own...

        I just saw a huge empty platter at the Whole Foods deli with a "potato latkes" sign and a bowl of applesauce on it. I didn't ask if they were making any more. The latkes were apparently quite popular at $6 per pound, IIRC. They also had some brisket and noodle kugel, as well as a few other things that might be eaten at this time of year.

    2. Kenny and Ziggy's, a Houston institution and Guy Fieri favorite, will ship latkes, rugglach, bobka, kreplach, kishka, etc., etc., to you pronto if you don't want to take the scenic tour to Houston. They are currently offering a special Hanukkah menu featuring, among other items, latkes (two varieties: traditional potato and zucchini carrot). You can get a dozen mini classic latkes for $10.
