My friends have invited me over to share in a shipment of pastrami from Katz's that just arrived from NY. They insist black cherry soda is the appropriate beverage to accompany the pastrami, but my childhood memories are of Cel-Ray Soda. It used to be available in the Bay Area but I haven't seen it in a while. Does anyone know where you can buy it in San Francisco?
(Melanie the Chowhound Oracle, I counting on you to know!)
Also, any favorites for rugalach? While it now seems to be widely available in the Bay Area, nothing can compare to memories of rugalach from Gertel's on Hester St. Everything here seems too doughy.
