Standing on line to pay my lunch tab last week at the Second Ave Deli (relocated a few years ago to First Ave of course), I overheard the following conversation at the take-out counter.
Young Asian woman: What soup do you have today?
Old deli guy: Split pea, lentil, mushroom & barley, chicken noodle, and kreplach.
Young Asian woman: Kreplach?
Old deli guy: Jewish dumpling.
Young Asian woman: Ah good, I’ll take it.
Did I tell you I ❤ New York?
