While Jewish food isn’t as prevalent in Austin as barbecue and tacos, it can be found in the city if you know where to look. While, yes, there aren’t traditional Jewish delis in Austin, there are restaurants and cafes that offer up classic as well as modern takes on the classic foodstuffs.
With that, here is Eater’s guide to the best Jewish foods in Austin, some with Texas-twists. There are New York-style bagels, schmears, and house-cured lox from Rosen’s Bagel Co., pounds of freshly smoked pastrami from Pieous, latkes from Jewish burger trailer JewBoy Burgers, stacked reuben sandwiches from Noble Sandwich Co., Jewish-Mexican fusion with the matzo ball caldo from June’s, and others. Rest assured there are places dishing out corned beef and sauerkraut as well.
For certified kosher foods and deli items, head to the Far West HEB on 7015 Village Center Drive near the Northwest Hills.
