Kenny & Ziggys New York Delicatessen
Kenny & Ziggy's mission is to give Houstonians an ultimate New York deli dining experience right in Uptown. Breads and cakes are made in-house, and pickles and meats are cured onsite. Fish are flown in daily from the Big Apple, and master slicers are on call to properly cut them in the European tradition, ensuring a silky and tender texture. The menu spans cabbage, Hungarian goulash, Romanian chicken fricassee, latkes, grilled Mediterranean tuna, and sweet potato pancakes, in addition to signature cut-to-order pastrami and corned beef sandwiches. And whether you get a sandwich, burger or knish, expect it to come in the kind of colossal portion only your grandmother would force on you.
Sandwiches. Burgers. Knish. Whatever you’re getting at this loveable Jewish deli, expect it to come in the kind of colossal portion only a Brooklyn grandmother would deem appropriate. Gargantuan triple-deckers come stuffed with corned beef, meatloaf, melted cheese, smoked pastrami, or roast brisket, all crafted in house, of course. These meaty stars are best split with a friend, especially if you’re hoping to save room for the Sweet Potato Fries and Onion Rings you “accidentally” ordered on the side.
