Kenny & Ziggy's Delicatessen Restaurant

2327 Post Oak Blvd. Houston, TX 77056 | Galleria | 713-871-8883

Location Description:

Homesick Noo Yawkers head to the Galleria and make lunch at Kenny & Ziggy's Delicatessen Restaurant a standing-room-only affair, scarfing down the fluffy, delicious matzo balls, the three-inch-thick pastrami deli sandwiches (served with Hebrew National mustard, flown in from New York), the Hungarian-style stuffed cabbage, the Hungarian goulash or the strong flavor of the barley-based varnishkas. The New York cheesecake is dense but slightly fluffy on the inside.
