While it’s customary to fast on Yom Kippur, we at Benjies Deli like to concentrate on the eating part—that is, the pre-fast meals and the post-fast meals. And we’ve got everything you need for those meals, whether you come in to Benjies to enjoy them, or we bring them to your door. We’ve been doing this since we opened in 1967, so we know a thing or two about traditional Jewish food!
Before the fast, we recommend our chicken soup with your choice of noodles, rice or kasha varnishkas, which comes in small or large sizes. Sharing with a special someone? We serve a “for two” meal that’s perfect for the Meal of Cessation (Seudat Mafseket), which usually calls for boiled chicken. But boiled chicken sounds boring, but not our Chicken in a Pot: half a chicken served in a tureen with matzoh balls, kreplach, noodles, rice and carrots, all swimming in delicious chicken broth. Hmmm, maybe you don’t want to share after all? If red meat strikes your fancy, we’ve also got Ribs in a Pot, which are deliciously tender short ribs in with the same goodies. And don’t miss our special “Mish Mosh, It’s a Meal!” soup, a bowl full of a matzoh ball, kreplach, rice, noodles, chicken and carrots all snug in our freshly made chicken stock. (more…)
