For the determinedly kosher (or determinedly local), the East Side Kosher Deli is indispensable. This authentic oasis just north of Mir Park stocks everything from candies and snacks to Hanukkah candles and kosher ramen. There's a bakery, a very busy deli counter, a fish department (specializing in lox, of course) and, in the back, a small restaurant offering the expected deli sandwiches, blintzes, knishes from the bakery, herring salad and chopped liver. What's unexpected are the kosher versions of everything from Korean short ribs to north African lamb stew to sesame stir-fry.
