Ashkenaz Deli **CLOSED**

12 E. Cedar St., Chicago, IL 60611
Ashkenaz Deli on Urbanspoon

A Quick Word:
A great little deli in the heart of downtown! They have delicious lox and amazing pastries.  Unfortunately, they do miss on a few of their dishes like their soup which is disappointing.  I haven't had the different sandwiches yet, but this deli looks promising.  I will definitely be back.

What I ate:

Matzo Ball Soup

The soup was ok...  the Matzo ball had an interesting consistency and the broth was fairly simple. In fact it almost tasted like plain chicken broth.  I wish there were some vegetables or more seasoning.  This soup is amazing during the winter because it is served piping hot!

Lox Platter

Best lox I have ever had. Not fishy at all, very tender... Amazing! Came with fresh tomatoes, sliced cucumbers, onions, homemade chive cream cheese, and of course toasted bagels! We chose one of the everything bagels and also a plain one.  The everything bagel is much better with all the different seeds and grains on top... It gave the bagel nice texture.  The platter comes with so much food and we had tons of leftovers. The price was pretty high so maybe a smaller option would be better!

The DOs/DON'Ts:
- If possible, walk here or take public transportation.  There is minimal parking and it gets frustrating after a while.
- Do share the lox platter.  It is delicious but way too big.  And order extra bagels!
- Do order some of the desserts.  I forgot to take pictures of the rugelach but they have three or four different flavors and each are amazing.

- I wouldn't order the matzo ball soup... it wasn't very special in my opinion but thats just for me.

How far would I walk for this food?
