Wait for it…
Weren’t you expecting a Chinese food delivery when they opened the door for Elijah? Don’t lie. I did. And I know you did too.
So, Elijah didn’t deliver 🙁 What kind of Jew doesn’t bring something with him. Of course, he WILL drink your wine! But coming empty handed? No my friends, THAT is a sin! So what’s a Jew to do?
Easy. If Elijah won’t bring it to you on Passover, then, you will have to go to the promised land…
What’s on Your Seder Plate?
Here are two Kosher Chinese restaurants that will serve you a nice, and proper, Pesach dinner.
Let my People go to:
On the North Shore, there’s really only one place to consider for Passover dinner. “Cho-Sen Village” at 505 Middle Neck Road, Great Neck, NY 11023. Kashruth Supervision by Vaad Harabonim of Queens no less! Kosher Chinese food. With a CAPITAL “K”!
Last year, Mee V. Stoogas and I, had a Passover dinner at Cho-Sen Village. On that fifth night of Passover, Jews throughout the land, or at least Great Neck, descended upon “Cho-Sen Village” like they were giving the food away. Which they certainly were NOT! By the time our entrees were served, the ENTIRE restaurant was packed! I can only imaging the business that they must do on Christmas!!
A special Passover Menu was all that was available this week, along of course, with a box of Matzo on every table. Whether their regular menu prices are comparable (we hope not) to their special Passover menu still remains to be seen.
Pardon the Schlep from the North Shore… “Cho-Sen Island” is located at 367 Central Avenue, Lawrence, NY 11559. Oy Vey!!
We went there on a Wednesday night. The restaurant was packed. I can only imagine what the crowd is like on the weekend. Hmm… Shabbos. Perhaps Wednesday IS their busy night of the week. I bet it will be packed for Passover.
The number of yarmulkes in the restaurant outnumbered the number of chopsticks by a ratio of 40-5 (or, 8-1 for those of you mathematician who like to bring their fractions to their lowest common denominator (Jews AND Chinese will love that reference!)
Please start, or join in on, our conversation in the Comments beneath this article. Would you ever have Chinese food for Passover?
