Wonderful food on the Lower East Side

AdinaA Dec 12, 2010 10:50 AM

I admit to snobbery. I thought great kosher food had left the Lower East Side more or less when the Jews did. That it conldn't offer much to tempt a foodie. Then I ate at Noah's Ark deli on Grand Street. Admittedly the place looks like, well, like a deli. But then they brought out something we didn't know we'd ordered: french fried sweet potatoes. Food for the gods. (forget that I said that on the kosher board) They were sublime. Crispy on the outside, creamy on the inside.

I have since tried the french fried sweet potatoes at Prime KO and at West Avenue Cafe in Miami. Uninteresting.

I'm going back to Noah's Ark for the french fried sweet potatoes and I don't even like sweet potatoes!

It makes me wonder if there other kosher places with food that makes it worth the trip back to the everybody's great-grandmother's old neighborhood.

Tell me where else should I eat and what else should I order on the Lower East Side?

    Noah's Ark has good burgers,steak sandwiches,cilantro chicken wraps etc. If you go there ,stop at the bakery on Grand St just off Essex. Rivka is a wonderful person,with good old fashioned baked goods. If you like bialys ,just next door is Kossar's bialys. Enjoy.
