Were they really kosher?December 27, 2012 8:32 pm at 8:32 pm #916582rebdonielMember
Of course. Vaad of Flatbush is perfectly kosher, despite attacks from others on the right.December 27, 2012 8:44 pm at 8:44 pm #916583zahavasdadParticipant

Actually, the Vaad of Flatbush is much better than it used to be, probably because of “attacks from the right”.December 27, 2012 9:44 pm at 9:44 pm #916585
Oh stink. I thought this would be a thread bemoaning the fact that all my maggedei shiurim call the place in japan shangchai because the mir was there. It drives me nuts. its shanghai.December 27, 2012 10:08 pm at 10:08 pm #916586☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
I guess now we should call it “Shang Meis”.
It drives me nuts.
Ah, so that was the cause. 🙂December 28, 2012 7:00 am at 7:00 am #916587TheBearIsBackMember

Bear: It goes back closer to 4 decades, and it had great food and great service. Well, that’s sad. Shang Chai was Brooklyn’s answer to Shmulke Bernstein’s for a long time.December 28, 2012 1:53 pm at 1:53 pm #916590squeakParticipant

” all my maggedei shiurim call the place in japan shangchai
The place in Ja-what?”
Shangchai was in Japan (china was under Japanese rules at that time.) Still doesnt explain why they call it ShanChai, nobody says Chavana.December 28, 2012 2:33 pm at 2:33 pm #916593workingParticipant
Shanghai is actually in China, but who’s looking at a map anyway.December 28, 2012 3:23 pm at 3:23 pm #916594YusselParticipant
Morahmom: Not even in the same ballpark as Berstein’s.December 28, 2012 8:23 pm at 8:23 pm #916596oomisParticipant
Toi – gam ani.
I liked the place very much, though I have not been there in a long time.December 28, 2012 9:03 pm at 9:03 pm #916597morahmomParticipant
Yussel: Shang Chai was definitely classier.December 29, 2012 4:41 pm at 4:41 pm #916598
working- go check one from ww2.
Oomis- ive never been there, nor have i ever heard of it. but any restaurant that has good food and closes is a tzorah d’rabbim.December 30, 2012 5:47 am at 5:47 am #916599squeakParticipant
Would you also call Warsaw “that place in Germany”?December 30, 2012 2:37 pm at 2:37 pm #916600YusselParticipant
Bernstein’s had a “class” all it’s own. and the food was beyond compare.December 30, 2012 9:21 pm at 9:21 pm #916601
sqeak- i dont know. but i know that my rabbeim called it in japan. which was part of the neis- they didnt get killed while being in axis territory.December 31, 2012 3:49 am at 3:49 am #916602americaisoverParticipant
thats because the modern Jews have all moved to five towns and teaneckDecember 31, 2012 9:11 pm at 9:11 pm #916603arcParticipant
As I said earlier, Shanghai was under Japanese rule at the time. Although Japan was part of the axis they weren’t an anti semetic country, which is why they allowed the Jews in.
