SodaCraft @ Wise Sons Deli

SodaCraft is popping up again this weekend, but with a Jew-y twist.  We’ll be joining up with Wise Sons Deli at the weekly food cart get together at Off The Grid McCoppin Hub this Saturday morning, doing our part to revive the true Jewish deli that San Francisco deserves. Evan and Leo will be making the rounds with their usual “so good, you should call your mother and tell her you love her” pastrami sandwiches on housemade double baked rye, and Jewish summer camp stoner-friendly (you know who you are) chocolate babka french toast.

SodaCraft is getting into the spirit of things by tackling some Jewish deli soda standards.  We’ll be serving our ‘Nilla Bean Cream Soda, infused with real madagascar vanilla beans, and Toasted Celery Soda.  I’m betting the celery seed will be outstanding with their new item:  housemade smoked whitefish. Both sodas are lightly sweetened with organic evaporated cane sugar, and naturally carbonated using baker’s yeast for effervesce and texture.

Essential Details:
Jackie’s Vinoteca and Cafe, 105 Valencia (at McCoppin), adjacent to Off the Grid: McCoppin Hub. Saturday., 9 a.m-2 p.m.

Wise Sons Deli Menu:
MATZO BALL SOUP- probably not as good as bubbe made it

BIALY AND SMOKED SALMON – our own bialy with smoked salmon, red onion, capers; sweet & sour cucumbers on the side
SMOKED WHITE FISH SANDWICH- on toasted rye with red onion and greens
SEMITE SANDWICH – crispy pastrami bacon, fried egg, swiss, & a swab of mustard on griddled rye
SMOKED MUSHROOM SCRAMBLE – smoked shitakes & beet greens with rye toast

BABKA FRENCH TOAST- with macerated strawberries and fresh cream
PICKLE PLATE – assorted vinegar & salt fermented pickles
SHTETL TOAST – rye toast with shmaltz, herb salad, breakfast radish, & sea salt

PASTRAMI OR CORNED BEEF – on double-baked rye, choice of potato salad or coleslaw & garlic-dill pickles (After 11am)
SMOKED MUSHROOM REUBEN – vegetarian, with smoked shitakes

and you should watch this video clip of Cumminty’s all black production of Fiddler on the Roof, “Fiddler Please.”   Because it’s awesome.

    […] Since no Jewish Deli is complete without classic deli soda flavors, we’ll be teaming up with Wise Sons Deli this Saturday for a complete deli experience.  Come by their pop up at McCoppin Hub to try our ‘Nilla Bean Cream Soda, infused with real madagascar vanilla beans, and Toasted Celery Soda.  Both are great compliments for house cured and smoked pastrami.   You can find other details as well as the full Wise Sons Deli menu for this weekend here.

    The Manhattan Special, it’s an NYC specialty that I’ve never seen anywhere else: Jewy because it’s from NYC? I don’t know, but they’re good.

    Good luck out there today with the Sons.
