Saul’s Restaurant & Delicatessen
  1475 Shattuck Ave./Cedar St., Gourmet Ghetto.  Boasting a NYC deli feel and a goodly number of very comfortable booths, this casual spot presents popular traditional Jewish deli dishes:  chicken soup with 2-inch matzo balls or noodles, long-simmered brisket with carrots and onions, crispy latkes, delicious egg creams (basically a chocolate soda with milk, they contain no egg or cream and here are prepared with house-made chocolate syrup), and creamy rice pudding.  Currently my favorite item is a veggie Malawac Yemeni pancake consisting of a delicious stretchy-dough base topped with spinach and chopped eggs and served with house-made labne yogurt cheese plus zhoug and harissa sauces; beef shawarma topping is additional.  A complimentary plate of full sour, half sour, and dill pickles are brought to munch on while perusing the menu (sometimes they don’t come, so do ask for them should that occur).  The deli prepares everything to go.
