While they’re not known primarily for their french toast, it is still one of the favourites among regulars. The dish to try is called Challah. The bread is soaked in milk, eggs and cinnamon overnight and is deep fried till it’s almost charred making the edges hard but the middle soft and eggy. A definitely amazing french toast.
