Emanu-el Delicatessen in Tenafly is a haven for Israelis living in the area and just about anyone who has a penchant for specialty items from the land of milk and honey. Owner Kfir Sayag bakes challah each Friday (which quickly sells out) along with flaky, cheese filled borek pastries on a daily basis. Israeli coffee and Sachlav, the Middle Eastern thick vanilla-laced comfort drink, are also available, along with an array of flat breads, salami, cheeses, prepared appetizers and spreads and a great olive and pickle bar.
Emanu-el Delicatessen also hosts an annual Purim celebration. It’s this Sunday, March 16 and free, so bring the kids for food, entertainment and fun. Flyer follows.
Here’s a video with Kfir who talks about the delicatessen. He’s charming and makes everyone feel at home. His borek and challah, along with his cheese and appetizers, are delicious. Here’s a link to the store’s Facebook page.
