Kosher Ethiopian restaurant in NYC/NJ area?

Is anyone aware of a Kosher Ethiopian restaurant in the NYC/NJ area? My non-Jewish friends rave about Ethiopian food and I would love to try some.

Kosher Cruising in General and Norwegian Cruise Line specifically

We did a 5 night Disney Dream cruise in July 2011 and had a similar distasteful Weberman's experience. They also had a list of food but it was basically the same stuff you get in the Walt Disney World parks: chicken breast (awful); roast beef; salmon or vegetable lasgna and for kids chicken fingers. There is also soup, which was actually the only thing we liked but opening it was a very big challenge. Luckily, our server was a sweetheart who obtained a clean pair of scissors for us to use to open the soup containers. The desserts were also awful but at least the soft serve ice cream is kosher and so are the Mickey Bars that you can order from room service. One time they tried to serve us Passover food - in JULY! Even the Passover rolls! I promptly let the head server know that we are not to be served ANY Passover food (luckily had a green label so easily identified). We were able to get breakfast food if we wanted but only cheese omelet (which we sometimes ate as a lunch or supper) or cheese blintzes. We just stuck to the cereal and milk, both of which had hechshers and saved the warm stuff for lunch and dinner.

I agree that the kosher cruises probably have much better food experiences but at twice if not three times the cost, it just doesn't seem worth it! Fortunately, Disney Cruise Line allows you to bring on prepackaged food and that is my plan for our June 2012 cruise. I will use the in room refrigerator and make do with the prepackaged Weberman's stuff for only one time per day.

Best Kosher Supermarket in Brooklyn, NY?

I love Pomegranate and would totally go there from anywhere nearby, even Manhattan! From the easy valet parking to the helpful workers to having them unload my groceries and either load up my car OR deliver it to me later on (I live in Brooklyn), it is a pleasant experience! And I used to have to make a few stops to get different products that our local heimishe stores didn't carry since they are not chalav yisroel (Morningstar Farms vegetarian products come to mind) and now I don't since Pomegranate has them.

Mexican Food

My kids LOVE tacos. We use the regular taco shells and seasonings from Ortega and then use Morningstar Farms Veggie Meat Crumbles for the "meat" and that way it's a dairy meal with cheese and sour cream, too.

Orlando FL (DisneyWorld) Kosher food options

Sorry you didn't like your experience at Cohen's. I'm also surprised since we've had fantastic meals there, even during the busiest time of Succos. We do buy stuff at Publix but usually milchig (cholov stam) stuff. If you want meats or cholov yisroel you need to head to the Millenia Super Target. For more ideas, you can go to www.jewishorlando.com and click the tourist food info links.

ORLANDO-DISNEY AREA FOOD

I agree with the above posters! Cohen's Deli is by far the best in the area and so worth heading to Clermont! The owners are so kind and work hard to please their customers. And they masgiach is Rabbi Konikov from Chabad and is 100% reliable.

Parve nut-free chocolate

If you want to be assured of nut-free status, I'd go for the Divvie's chocolate chips and chocolate bars. www.divvies.com

Gobble Gobble-Need Source for fully cooked Kosher turkey for a Brooklyn Thanksgiving.

I just saw that Pomengranate is having a $100 16-20 lb turkey for Thanksgiving along with gravy. Yes, it's not cheap but takeout/prepared kosher food IS expensive. I recommend Pomengranate as we think they have the best take out in Brooklyn. I buy 1/4 to 1/2 lb of their fresh turkey every week and it's not dried out or full of preservatives like the regular deli turkey.

Disney Cruise Line

Thanks for the link but I already know they offer kosher food. I just don't know if the meals are exactly the same as the Weberman's meals that Walt Disney World offers or if there are more varieties - especially in the pareve or dairy realm.

kosher, pareve and nut free

I was also going to recommend Divvies. You can order and have it shipped. I know they don't have cake but they do have cupcakes and cookies and other treats. www.divvies.com

Disney Cruise Line

There is a post from 2008 but I was wondering if anyone has any updated information on the kosher food for Disney Cruise Line. I am totally familiar with Walt Disney World and it's kosher food and the kosher food in Orlando but not with the cruise line. Is it the exact same meals as what is available at Walt Disney World or is there more variety? We don't necessarily want to eat lots of meat meals as we'd prefer to have some real ice cream or Mickey bars (both of which are kosher).
