Brunch at Mamaleh's

Mamaleh's Cambridge Jewish deli
Mamaleh is a Yiddish term of endearment for a young child. Mamaleh's is a new modern Jewish deli in Cambridge. Last weekend, friends and I headed across the Charles for Jewish favorites and it did not disappoint.  We ordered an array a food, which we called "Jewish tapas" (insert laughing emoji here), that satisfied sweet and savory cravings.

We started out with meat knishes, blintzes (crepes stuffed with cheese and topped with a yummy & bright raspberry sauce) and classic potato latkes. My favorites were the knishes and blintzes - we loved the blintzes so much we ordered them for dessert too!

For my meal, like I needed it after our apps, was the sable bagel sandwich. I usually get nova lox but decided to change it up with something new to me. This smoked fish was so creamy & light and went perfectly with the dill cream cheese, pickled cucumbers, arugula, and watermelon radishes (added a great fresh crunch). My friends had the nova bagel plate, eggs over a potato hash, breakfast sandwich (challah bread!), and noodle kugel.

For desserts, we had the already mentioned second order of blintzes and a slice of chocolate babka, which reminded me of a chocolate croissant - a delicious finish.

The restaurant atmosphere is fun & upbeat. I loved the overall branding too. After eating, we explored a corner of the restaurant with a variety of Jewish novelty items for sale. These cards are so fun!

Can't wait to go back for lunch and try Mamaleh's reuben sandwich (and get more blintzes)! They have a take-out deli counter too!
