|In New York City, back in the day, it has been said you could tell how Jewish a neighborhood was by the number of available Chinese restaurants. They were often on every corner.
There are even old jokes that circulated about Jews, Chinese people and food...they always crack me up...
If, according to the Jewish calendar, the year is 5764, and, according to the Chinese calendar, the year is 5724, what did the Jews eat for forty years? Ha! I love that.
Two Chinese men are walking out of Katz's Delicatessen. One says to the other, "The problem with Jewish food is that two weeks later you're hungry again." Bwahahahahahahaha!
Anyway, in Brooklyn, there were even many kosher Chinese restaurants (I'm not sure if there are any left). For many Jewish families it was a Sunday ritual to patronize these often upscale Chinese eateries. In Los Angeles, on Fairfax, I know of a New York style Chinese restaurant named, Genghis Cohen, an obvious play on words." Noble Pig
