Tucked behind a bookstore on the grungier east side of Austin, Texas is the only Jewish-style food truck in a city known for its robust street food scene. Named "Schmaltz," which means both chicken fat and overly sentimental, the trailer paradoxically offers vegetarian food, such as falafel, kombucha and a vegan Reuben.

All the menu items are named after Jewish writers and artists. Amy Kritzer

I don't know where it started. Perhaps it was with my dad years ago, but whenever I go to a traditional deli I always order a can of Dr. Brown's Cel-Ray. It's a sweet, celery-flavored soda that pairs surprisingly well with meat. I compare it to a sweet version of ginger ale.

The Lower East Side is an ever-changing neighborhood; demographics constantly shifting, storefronts coming and going, and tenement houses morphing into high rise condos. Despite all this change and refashioning, one thing has remained a neighborhood staple: Katz’s Delicatessen, which is currently celebrating it’s 125th anniversary. I had the opportunity to schmooze all things deli with fifth-generation owner, Jake Dell.
