Day 94: East Coast meets West Coast

On Saturday morning we checked out the local synagogue near our hotel in Nob Hill, SF. They were offering a lunch after services so we thought about staying to eat there. The meal was vegetarian and seemed to feature salads and perhaps a vege chulent. However, the table was only set for about 15 and there were a number of other visitors there, plus a couple of students and locals, so we decided to head back to our hotel where we had food we had bought in advance. We took the scenic route back and checked out some of the fanciest hotels in San Fran. When we got back, we enjoyed a meal of deli sandwiches, potato salad, cole slaw, and Israeli salad. We had brought the deli from NY but we ordered the rest of the food from Tel Aviv, the kosher market place in San Fran. We also ordered challah from them, and the challah was excellent. Different from the challah I normally eat in NY, but definitely doughy and soft and delicious. I used slices of the challah to make a sandwich with pastrami and salami. I added ketchup, but only on the salami side, not on the pastrami side. It was a very filling and delicious lunch.
