Are there any Chinese restaurants in Israel
Sweet and sour duck at Christmas
Judaism has one thing (once again) above all: It has not only developed eating habits for its own holidays, but also for the holidays of other religious communities. At least in the United States. There, Jews traditionally go to dinner in Chinese at Christmas. What began in New York has now become a national tradition.
RELATIONSHIPS The reason for the Jewish preference for sweet and sour duck and co. Has - like some traditions - a very pragmatic origin. On December 25th, Christmas Day in the USA, almost all restaurants are closed even in busy New York. And since people mostly sit and dine at home at Christmas, it became a habit of young Jews to go to the cinema on December 25th and then to the Chinese.
There's a "Traditional Jewish Christmas" dinner in Brooklyn.
Perhaps it was also some culinary affinities that drove the first Eastern Jews into the Chinese restaurants. At least that's how Matthew Goodman describes it in "Tablet" magazine. “First, the Chinese restaurants didn't have statues of the Virgin Mary around, and then they prepared the dishes of their Cantonese cuisine in a strangely familiar way. A sweet and sour basic profile, overcooked vegetables and mountains of garlic and onions. Goodman asked ironically.
UNKOSHER The Jewish Christmas China phenomenon has even been scientifically investigated. The authors of the study "Safe Treyf" argued in 1992 that Chinese cuisine consists of largely non-kosher ingredients, but that they are finely chopped or twisted for a long time, served in harmless vegetables and hidden under a familiar sauce or invisible in wontons and spring rolls be wrapped up until the guilty conscience is calm. Resourceful Chinese restaurants quickly internalized their new clientele and from now on advertised their wonton soup as "chicken soup with Kreplach" at Christmas.
Be that as it may, the New York bon mot that we have the year 5780 and the Chinese have the year 4717, i.e. we had to do without Chinese food for 1063 years, has a real core. And the Jewish love for Chinese cuisine has been a tradition for more than 100 years, when it first began in Manhattan's Lower East Side.
The fact that Jewish restaurants such as the hip “Mile End Delicatessen” in Brooklyn have been serving a “Traditional Jewish Christmas” dinner for some time now is a further culinary enhancement of an entirely Jewish Christmas tradition. The menu includes: shrimp chips, Sichuan cucumber, bean sprouts, BBQ mushroom bao with a crispy salad, spring onion latkes, egg soup, General Tso chicken, jasmine rice, maple egg cream, pineapple - and of course Fortune Cookies: Ess jitteriness!
