I always go to Ben’s Kosher Deli for lunch at least once when I am in New York. It is busy and fun and I like the food.
I usually order the chicken soup with matzo ball and it is delicious. A bowl with pickles and coleslaw arrives first.
A matzo ball is like a very large dumpling.
The overstuffed sandwiches are just that…overstuffed. I ordered the corned beef, but I have also had the pastrami on rye in the past and that is excellent as well…and the stuffed cabbage is delicious.
There is also a take away section, but I love the experience of eating in. The waiters are entertaining and to me it is seems an authentic New York thing to do.
Ben’s Kosher Deli…209 West 38th Street…between 7th and 8th avenues.
