Schmerling's "triangle" cheese

I haven't seen it recently, but I can tell you it's definitely not gruyere.

Corn Dogs: Serious Question

Thank you so much for sharing!

I hope they're as good as I remember from before I was kosher. They were SO GOOD.

Joy of Kosher Magazine

I've received a couple copies in gift bags and wasn't that impressed. They're not bad but nothing I found interesting enough to try or pull out before recycling it.

Gluten Free Deli Meats

They're not kosher and this thread has been quiet for 3 years.

Need Manhattan restaurant for small group with 1 vegan colleague

I'd be careful with soups in meat restaurants, as they tend to use meat stocks.

Need Manhattan restaurant for small group with 1 vegan colleague

I'm going to have to protest Abigail's. Every time I've ended up there, my (vegetarian) dish was incredibly bland and gave the impression that it was a mere afterthought.I felt ripped off on behalf of the person who was paying the bill. Not to mention, Abigail's is not that great of ambiance if the rest of the group is used to eating in non-kosher restaurants.

Panama ?

I'd try reaching out to the community in Panama City. There's a considerable Syrian community there.

Restaurants that need updating (Tevere 84, Va Bene, La Marais - in Manhattan) What others?

That sounds amazing and worth a schlep. Too bad they closed before I moved to NYC (if a Chowhound post from April 2003 is accurate).

Mocha Burger vs. Amsterdam Burger

Glad someone managed to pick that up.

Mocha Burger vs. Amsterdam Burger

You know very well that no reputable kashrut organization will certify an establishment that does not sell sushi. :-)

Restaurants that need updating (Tevere 84, Va Bene, La Marais - in Manhattan) What others?

Ugh. Yes. Abigael's really needs a makeover.

I always thought La Marais was doing that on purpose. It wanted to be an upscale place for people who wanted the same familiar things in the same familiar place every time.

Elk steaks, roast goose... maybe coming our way

I'm torn on this one. On the one hand, I'm all for expansion of kosher culinary horizons. On the other, I would be dishonest in telling them that I'd buy the meat since my kitchen is dairy.

What oil do you use for vegan / parve borekas

Toasted sesame oil. Not a buttery-flavor but certainly complimentary to your planned fillings.

Is this for real? Kosher Parmigiano Reggiano??

The E1.5m he spent turning over his farm to be kosher.

Kosher McDonalds in NY Magazine

Still deep-fried from what I hear. The chocolate shakes were pretty good.

Yeah. Fast food is one place where people who keep kosher are NOT missing out on tasty food.

Parve filling for turnovers/borekas ??

I'm always a fan of mushrooms sauteed with onions and herbs (such as thyme) and then chopped for the filling. Or spinach with lots of garlic.

Although I'm not so big on potato borekas, I'd bet that sweet potato with spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove would be good too.

Mr. Softee Ice Cream Trucks

When you're buying from a Mister Softee truck, it's generally not in a place where you can be picky if you have kashrut issues. Also, as someone who worked in a place that served "upscale" soft serve, there's nothing "fresh" about it. I still eat it but it's not fresh.

How do *you* find kosher dairy recipes online?

I'd check out smitten kitchen's vegetarian stuff. Also, their stuff in general. Not all of it is kosher, but nearly all of it is because the writer did spend part of her life keeping kosher. For example, she has a fab mushroom soup that calls for cream and explicitly states you can use either stock or water. I know from experience that she tests her suggested substitutes to avoid giving a bad recipe.

Wholesale Kosher Vegan (and/or Vegan/Allergy-Free) Challah

Some water challot still have an egg glaze, so you'd have to double check. Also, I think GGH is looking for a brand recommendation.

GreenGirl, where are you? Brands vary by region.

First kosher in Dumbo

Thanks for the link. Jerked veggie chicken sounds worth a trip.

Lasagna

Also, n.397 is a designation of the pasta type. For example, my favorite pasta shape is campanelle n.99. It can be helpful since the names for pasta shapes can vary regionally and sometimes I've seen the same (or very similar) names for different pasta shapes.

2nd Budda Buddai @ 77 Mulberry Street

According to Yelp (http://www.yelp.com/biz/buddha-bodai-...) it's the same owner. The review indicates that it is basically the same as the previous one except no cutoff for dim sum!

I'm going to try to get there this week and report back.

Pareve icecreams

Good to know! I grew up on Double Rainbow ice creams and it might even be worth slogging through the local Trader Joe's for a pint or two of nostalgia.

UWS NYC odd-kosher-food event

Yes it is and enough of my friends know it as part of a joke that I thought the joke was well-known. I guess not.
