Hunting for Hanukkah Treats in Phoenix

Categories: Shopping

Hanukkah is a time for food, gifts and spending time with family. In New York or Chicago, it'd be a snap to find local restaurants serving Hanukkah dinner or offering latkes, brisket and kugel.

Here in Phoenix it's a little more difficult to find Hanukkah-related foodstuffs, unless you resort to the Kosher section of your local grocery. But with a little holiday resourcefulness, we found a few places to help get your Hanukah celebration started.

Hanukkah To-Go

  • Scott's Generations at 5555 N. 7th St. in Phoenix: Scott's has potato latkes by the dozen, plus Borscht, Kreplach and Matzoh Ball soups for takeout.
  • Chompie's: Visit any Valley Chompie's location for Hanukkah sweets and latkes to-go. Tip: Try the North Scottsdale location for the best selection and most knowledgeable staff.
  • The Scottsdale Cafe has an extensive Shabbat takeout menu, with Kosher selections including noodle kugel, gefilte fish, challah and kishke. 
  • La Grande Orange in Phoenix has a few Hanukkah-themed snacks and desserts in their grocery section, including dreidel cookies and candy.
  • By far, the best selection of Kosher foods and holiday items is at Segal's One Stop/Oasis Grill at 4818 N. 7th St. in Phoenix. Look for by-the-pound pastrami, deli salads, potato kugel and chopped liver. Segal's originally opened in 1967, but was recently purchased by the Gilkarov family.
