For the determinedly kosher (or determinedly local), the East Side Kosher Deli is indispensible. 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, natch) and, in the back, a small restaurant offering deli sandwiches, blintzes, knishes from the bakery, herring salad and chopped liver, as well as short ribs (beef, of course), fish tacos, Louisiana gumbo and "Oriental specialties."
