Date August 21, 2008

NYC Food Guy Note: I’m on vacation in California so I’m sending you on a NY Food Tour to keep your stomach happy while I’m gone. Enjoy the deliciousness.

  • Cost: $3.25
  • Where: 127 2nd Avenue b/t 7th Street and St. Mark’s Place NY, NY 10003 212-505-8065
  • Inside Info: B&H is known for their homemade soups which are served alongside a hearty slice of chalah. Their daily sandwich/soup or entree/soup combos will leave you and your wallet feeling full, happy and healthy for around $10. I’ve heard good things about their expansive juice bar.

    TJ Jackson,

    All I know is there’s no meat at this tiny little diner but the soups are great, the chalah is tasty and the food is affordable.

    Are you a vegetarian?

    A person who eats No animal products of any kind is considered “vegan”. “Vegetarian” is a moving target. This, from Wikipedia:

    Vegetarianism is the practice of a diet that excludes meat, including game, slaughter by-products, and poultry (sometimes with the exception of eggs). The definitions of “vegetarian” vary, and there are several variants of the diet, some of which also exclude eggs and/or some products produced from animal labor such as dairy products and honey.

    A vegan diet is a form of vegetarianism which excludes all animal products from the diet, such as meat, poultry, fish, dairy products, eggs and honey. Strict veganism also excludes use of animal products for attire and adornment, whether or not the production has directly involved the actual death of an animal, for example: wool, silk, down feathers, leather, pearls, coral, etc.
    Lacto and lacto-ovo vegetarianism include dairy products.

    Me, I’m a meat man. And spare me the immature comments.

    my meatman post above was obviously tongue and cheek. FOOD FOR THOUGHTS comment clearly was not. learn how to differentiate.

    The Meatman,

    What difference does that make, hating on caps is hating on caps and you’re a user and an abuser of meat and upper case letters….

    They serve fish at B&H too, as it remains one of the last kosher dairy spots in the East Village/LES and the city as a whole (fish is considered dairy according to Jewish law). Had a mean whitefish salad sandwich there last night. The truth.

    Their challah is delicious.
