Holy cow! and chicken and turkey at Subway
Hallelujah! Subway has seen the light: kosher sandwiches is where it’s at. Two local Jewish entrepreneurs (25-year-olds!) opened the first glatt kosher Subway franchise in the western United States on Monday, Oct. 1.
Jay Firestone, Jewish Journal editorial assistant, writer, video-blogger, comedian and all-around super guy, wrote a full article on this major Jewish buzz item; read it here.
Danielle and I tagged along with Jay this past Wednesday as he visited the newest eatery on Pico Blvd. in the heart of the “hood,” and videotaped the experience:
Danielle, a recent kosher convert, compared her turkey sub to those of her treyf past: “It tastes exactly the same!”
I can’t wait for owners John and Sammy, who were sweet and accommodating and impressively sharp, to open up a kosher subway in my hood!
