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 decided to try a sub I’ve never had at Subway, because Subway never had it before: a shawarma sub. I have to say, it was quite tasty.

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!
