I have a nephew whose 11 and of mixed background. His father was of German/Jewish decent but hasnt been in the picture since he was 4. Recently, he's really been trying to identify with his Jewish roots and has spent extensive time with his father's sister and his family tree; but anyway, he's also been really wanting to eat some real Jewish cuisine - and here's where we're stuck. My family, including myself are pretty damn ignorant when it comes to Jewish food, so this is where I ask for help.
I live in North OC and he lives in the Riverside area, but we're more than willing to drive anywhere within the Southern California area to get some real good Jewish eats.
I know there are many delis in West LA and I would love some recs on those, but also looking for kosher markets and sit-down restaurants. I would also like some tips on German places as well.
Any tips? Recs? Comments?
