I was invited to a friend's house for the holidays tomorrow evening in Oakland (7pm) and wanted to bring some prepared (and typically Jewish) foods. Noodle kugel, knishes, kreplach or verenikas, chocolate rugelach, etc.
I am picking up some fresh baked challa rolls, rye loaf and shmear, chopped liver, a pickle platter, and chocolate babka from Wise Sons Deli in the Mission. Due to time constraints and demand for the holiday rush, they're unable to offer anything more substantial however.
Is there anywhere that I can pick up a really great kugel, some knishes, rugelach, etc. in the Bay Area? I'd even be willing to rent a zip car if necessary.
Is there a deli matching Wise Sons in quality that offers catering/prepared foods? A Jewish bakery perhaps?
Any help would be appreciated as this is very last-minute and I want to ensure that we have enough side dishes and deserts to bring for everyone!
Thanks so much
