Noshing in New York: Kosher Delivery on the Streets of Brooklyn

Brooklyn is the land of Kosher delis, stacked with nostalgic foods that have the ability to transport even the fastest-paced New Yorker back to their childhood spent in bubbie’s kitchen.

Many of the kosher establishments in the borough have been here for generations, serving an array of Ashkenazi classics like kishke, shawarma, kugel, cholent, and blintzes dishes that are virtually unchanged from their 19th-century origins in Eastern Europe.

Though not exactly photo-opportunistic, traditional kosher cuisine may never be a hit on Pinterest or have a large Instagram following. It’s just good food that tastes like home, so this is one case where pictures may not speak louder than words.

After all, when it comes to feel-good food, most of us have one thing in common; we love to taste our childhood in the food that we eat. In the fast-paced world that is New York City, the food that we grew up with reminds us to stop, slow down, and rest after a long hard work week.

From Midwood to Sunset Park and in between, today’s NY kosher establishments have gone from a pushcart to posh. With over 240 eateries offering kosher delivery in Brooklyn, including Gertie’s, Mechy’s, Stop Wok and Roll, Sophie’s Bistro, Zerda, and Fukurou Brooklyn, there are just so many that it’s almost impossible to name them all.
