I live outside of San Francisco which has relatively little AUTHENTIC Jewish Soul Food. Here in the Bay - I joke with my FL family that we have grass-fed lox brought to you by servers who will tell you the name of the fish. :} Bagel Snack Deli is where I go before I go back to FLL airport. This way I can fill my tote bag with the tasty things I miss soooo much. Originally from Boston, this place is a close second to Katz's Bagel Factory and the Chelsea Smokehouse from when I was growing up. There is corned beef, pastrami, pickled tongue, brisket, potato latkes, chopped liver, bagels, bialys, rye bread, real cream cheese, hand sliced lox, white fish salad, black & whites, rugalach, halvah, kaiser rolls, etc. It is all fresh and DELICIOUS. The dining-in visit is also an experience. That's what I do when my take-out order is being put together. In the dining room you will see and hear the last of our Jewish grandparents' generation from 'up north' and you will appreciate the just slightly rude but on-the-ball serving and counter people. A visit to South Florida is not complete without a visit here. There are of course other places like this - although fewer every year. The folks at the Bagel Snack counter wrap my take-aways in 2 rounds of paper and then 2 or 3 wraps of plastic. But it still smells when I open my tote bag for TSA at the airport. As we do not seem to have any half sour pickles in the Bay Area - these may be the worst olfactory offender from my tote bag. But it is all so darned delicious that I cram everything I can into the tote bag for a feast with my husband when I get home. I can't say enough about how wonderful this place is. It is cultural nostalgia combined with delicious tastes. It's a bulls eye and it does not get much better than that.
