Kosher Jews (or, if you are familiar with the comedic stylings of Larry David, Woody Allen, or Lower East Side grandmothers, "Good Jews") are bummed--bummed!--that the premiere Jewish deli in the Mission is not kosher,
as the taker of the above photo observed, "fffuuuucccckkkkkk bacon this sucks.", nevermind, we're idiots (and, in my case, vegetarian, so please excuse my bacon-pastrami-prosciutto-italllooksthesametome ignorance).
[While] we know that keeping kosher hasn't been important for some of the biggest, most long-running Jewish delis in the country (Katz's, Canter's, Langer's), we thought we'd ask co-owner Evan Bloom for this thoughts on the issue. "For us Jewish Deli has always been a cultural eating experience," he says. "Judaism and kashrut [Jewish dietary laws] are not intrinsically linked though we do choose not to serve shellfish and pork."
Uh, isn't bacon pork? (We're still idiots). Well, no matter. In the Grub Street mini-interview, Evan goes on to explain that their meat is more "ethically raised" than the kosher equivalent at the same price-point, so they opted for the animal-welfare over certified kosher.
Anyway, should you find yourself born a goy, or just unconcerned with 'keeping kosh', might I recommend trying their challah french toast? It'll change your life, and by change your life, I mean you won't stop eating it until you balloon 20 pounds and people cease finding you sexually attractive.
A worthy cause of obesity, if I do say so myself.
