Entrees such as chicken schnitzel ($13.95) come with classic side dishes such as shlishkes and sauteed cabbage with noodles.
I loved the golden brown crumb coating on the enormous flattened tender chicken breast in the schnitzel. It was so big it hung over the edge of the large takeout container. I don’t often get a chance to eat shlishkes. Those are potato dumplings for the uninitiated. They are made with potato dough pinched off into small pieces, boiled, then topped with a light coating of bread crumbs before the whole thing is delicately fried.
The good potato flavor in the light dumplings against the gentle crunch of the buttery crumbs is divine.
My second side, you get two, is sauteed cabbage, noodles and onions. It’s an old world dish highlighted by caramelized onions.
The cost of the dinner includes soup or salad. Make mine matzo ball with mild stock, potatoes, carrots and an oversize (what else?) cloud-light matzo ball. Portions are enough for two – just as if Bubby and Zadie had lovingly dished it out themselves. — Judith Stocks
