Kosher cooking adheres to a relatively simple set of principles: don't smear food on walls, don't feed your roommate while he is sleeping, and make sure all the food you're cooking is kosher. Enjoy some Hebrew-friendly fare with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of kosher sandwiches, salads, sweets, and more at Got Kosher? on West Pico Boulevard.
Merging a multitude of international flavors into one speedy establishment, Got Kosher? creates consummate kosher dishes made with fresh ingredients for dining in or dashing out. An on-staff mashgiach ensures edibles are crafted with ritual regard, with traditional Ashkenazi and Sephardic dishes offered alongside exotic Tunisian and Middle Eastern creations made without byproducts, MSG, or superfluous warranties.
Freshly toasted rye bread nestles crispy pastrami between cool lettuce and tomato in the PLT sandwich ($8.99), and Alain's Tunisian tuna sandwich bundles North African flavors in a stirato roll with traditional mechouia, potato, hard-boiled egg, and spicy harissa ($8.99). An array of sweet and savory kosher sausages, such as the beef and lamb Moroccan Merguez—adorned with onion, parsley, and harissa on a french pretzel roll ($7.99)—offers cased treats that leave pigs free to pursue careers as secret slop critics for the local paper.
For rushed repasts, a variety of grab 'n' go sandwiches and salads are prepared daily to sate fleet eaters with smoked turkey and basil mayo on ciabatta ($6.99) or a southwest salad with chicken and avocado dressing ($6.99). Seal meals with a selection of pareve sweets, such as cookies ($1.75), brownies ($3), and tempting cheesecake ($3/slice).
Got Kosher? is closed for remodeling and will be reopening in late September or early October.
The Los Angeles Times, the Jewish Journal, Examiner.com, and LA Weekly recommend Got Kosher? for its challah and other kosher goods.

- Perhaps the best version is the simplest: pretzel challah (above), which comes with a dark, delicious pretzel crust that gives way to the same beloved eggy goodness inside. – Alexandra Romanoff, Jewish Journal
- The little shop also has a good selection of specialty sodas and other deli treats. – reg t., Yelp, 9/9/10
The kitchen staff at Got Kosher? sidestep preservatives when making their daily yield of international kosher cuisine that includes French, Moroccan, and Tunisian dishes. Under the watchful eye of the onsite mashgiach, they prepare pulled beef brisket, Tunisian couscous, rotisserie chicken, Neshama gourmet kosher chicken, and turkey sausages served on pretzel rolls. Their flavorful fare has caught the attention of LA Weekly's Linda Burum, who calls the brik a l'oeuf—a deep-fried crepe folded over egg, capers, and tuna—"one of the world's great feats of culinary alchemy." In addition to a full slate of Ashkenazi and Sephardic dishes and a well-stocked deli case, Got Kosher? dispatches its full-service caterers to serve meals and resolve family feuds during weddings and special events.
