Matzo ball soup, blintzes, bagels (really good bagels) and lox…these items have been a long time coming in Edmonton. Thankfully Charlie Rothman realized that, too. He’s opened Rooster Kitchen on Whyte Ave and while the menu isn’t 100% Jewish foods, a good portion of it is, and, good news: Rothman sent me a message recently saying we can expect a full-on Jewish menu in the very near future. Hallelujah, and pass the brisket.

Listen to my CBC review of Rooster Kitchen here, or ready my web article here.
