    Barney Greenglass can't be beat, Murray's Sturgeon King comes close

      Love B&H Dairy's cold borscht. Dip some of that challah bread in it, mmm mmm.

        I love the version at yonah's :
        On houston, everyone has a different opinion about the knish (i love the mushroom one most
        )Also in e village veselka does a good one, they serve w sour cream fyi
        (Both are vegetarian and made in house)

          I second Barney Greengrass - and recommend that you try the schav as well. It is the best commercially prepared version that I have ever had.

            Just found some at fairway market with other soups they make near deli area, not amazing but def better than bottled crapola

              It's been a while since i had one but Veselka's was always really good. Nice touch with the chopped egg and I think cukes in there.
