Don’t Tease Me, Bro

I’m just going to say it. It’s wrong that there are so many Jewish restaurants out there that aren’t kosher. It’s wrong and it’s unfair. No, it’s not that I have issues with Jews owning non-kosher restaurants. To each their own. But you tease me. You all tease me with your wonderfully looking Jewish, yet non-kosher, meat.

I was just reading MJL’s new article on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, and I came across an amazing fact about Sammy’s Roumanian Steak House. On their tables, they provide a syrup-like container of schmaltz. You heard me, plain old rendered chicken fat.

Now, as far as I can tell, Sammy’s is not kosher. Which is a shame. Because as this video shows (video contains language. Viewer discretion advised), the rendered chicken fat is for real. And it looks wonderfully gluttonous.
