Is there really any better combination than Rachel Bloom and a piping hot bowl of matzo ball soup?

The “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” creator/star posed for her feature story in the latest Playboy Magazine at Canter’s Deli, the landmark eatery in Los Angeles.

The actress is pictured sitting in a deli booth, holding a bubbly soft drink, surrounded by a pastrami sandwich (natch) and matzo ball soup.

Bloom was pretty excited about the location of the shoot, tweeting that all the food had been swiftly eaten.

Her mother, Shelli Bloom, who often proudly posts magazine shots of her daughter, also uploaded a picture of the issue—and expressed happiness that “it’s only the pages being spread.”

Playboy Magazine October-luckily it’s only the pages that are spread.
