Dutch Wonderland's Glatt Kosher Eatery

I love the food there. The prices are comperable with other amusement park food, (expensive of course), but there is a hot kosher food option while on vacation. The kids love it, and it makes the vacation much better to go there. Anyone that doesn't keep kosher, knows that amusement park food is expensive, and this is no different. But it is there, it is good, and the only kosher option in Lancaster County.

Grand & Essex Market...Bergenfield, NJ

They are crazy expensive. They were selling mini hamentashen for $29.99 a pound. Yes. Its not a typo. I never thought I'd see the day where hamantashen were more expensive than hand made shmurah matzo.

With their transformation from affordable kosher shop to overpriced gourmet market, I'm not sure who their target market is, they are next door to a discount fruit store and across the street from Pathmark, with a bustling kosher section and affordably priced kosher butcher section and kosher bakery.

I hope they will revert back to their roots and become an affordable option to those that keep kosher in the area.

They aren't going to get non religious people with these prices, they will continue to shop at Harold's at a fraction of the price, or at Fairway at comparable prices, if they want to keep kosher.

Sushein - Conveyor Belt Sushi

They were very clear, they would not give us. The cashier confirmed this as we left.

Sushein - Conveyor Belt Sushi

Another thing I forget, we sat next to the kitchen, and we watched as someone sent back a steak, because it wasn't cooked enough, and we watched as they placed it into the microwave and let it cook. Classy. A $50 microwaved steak.

Sushein - Conveyor Belt Sushi

We went for lunch today.

We will not be returning.

1) This is the ONLY restaurant I have ever been to that has refused to serve tap water.

2) We ordered the all you can eat special, and the restaurant helped themselves to a 15% tip without informing us.

3) Service was non existent, as they made us eat at the bar and serve ourselves.

We work on the block of the restaurant, and they just lost a customer who eats out on the average of 3 times a week. Well played.

Anyone tried Ladino Tapas Grill Yet?

I agree, I went with my wife there last week, and the food was sub cafeteria par. The food had no taste, and the braised shortrib, was basically, the meat that my mom cooks with the soup on passover. We paid crazy prices, and were starving when we left. We will gladly overpay for good food, but will not return to be ripped off for someone's kitchen experiment. C'mon, $15 for guacamole, it better be magical guoc. (We did not get it). The yucca fries had no taste, the wings tasted like they used the Dougie's sauce, and it was all the same with everything else.

I was hoping for a good change, but alas, there will be no return for me.

NY Lunchbox

I was there last week, and ordered scrambled eggs on a bagel. It was supposed to come with "home fries", but was told that they didn't have them, and it would be the same price no matter.

The employee making the eggs was making an entire batch of scrambled eggs, and stacking them up, I can only assume that this was for people that ordered them in the future, so that they didn't have to "Waste their time" by making fresh food. When he saw I saw what he was doing he made me a fresh one. It had no taste.

I will not go back there. I have no confidence that the food will be good or fresh.

I wish them best of luck.

the best place to buy hamentashen in bulk?

You may want to try Reisman's Bakery in Brooklyn, on Avenue O. I don't they have packaged goods and have a pretty decent distribution system in the NY Metro Area. I have bought from them before and they are a pleasure to deal with and their food is pretty good. Their info is 110 Avenue O Brooklyn, NY 11204 (718) 331-1975. http://www.reismansbakery.com/

Baguette Express

I was there about 2 weeks ago. Its a small sandwich shop for take out. There isn't really anywhere to eat. For Manhattan, the prices are affordable. Its an Israeli style sandwich place. They have a limited menu, but affordable. The kosher food business is a rough business and I hope that they make it.

Kosher in Quebec City

I was there on vacation 2 years ago, and there are not any kosher stores in the area. At local supermarkets you should be able to find a full variety of kosher packaged goods, {which is what we did} except for meat products; but you wont find the "jewish" brands. Sorry, it is a nice city though...

Kosher Subway Now Open In...New Rochelle!

i did and they were more expensive. Look, the kosher grocery store in New Rochelle couldnt make it, I don't see how a store making overpriced pre-cut deli sandwiches will cut it.

Kosher Subway Now Open In...New Rochelle!

I went last week. The prices were ridiculously expensive even for kosher food, and the food was not fresh. If I am going to pay 7.99 for a 6 inch sub, the meat should be fresh and not laying there all day long. They are more expensive than the other Subway kosher franchises. Moreover, Grill Point is down the block and much cheaper. I don't see how they make it, unless they figure their act out.

Recommendations for nice place in Riverdale or Westchester?

Its a tough call, there really is nowhere to go. Actualy when we really want a good meal and have some time on our hands, we actualy go to the cafeteria at Weiler hospital (Einstein). That is the best kosher food in the Bronx/Westchester area. Otherwise Manhattan it is (or Great Neck, depending on traffic).

Any Kosher Dunkin Donuts Stores in Brooklyn?

the ones that had a problem were the ones on Avenue J and the one on 86th Street. There are kosher ones on Kings Highway (2 of them), Quentin Road, Nostrand and I, Flatbush Avenue, Avenue M, Coney Island Avenue and Ditmas Avenue, in Park Slope (in the Pathmark shopping center), I must be missing some others.

Prime Grill Online??The Kosher Omaha Steaks

its not enough that they charge close to $200 for 4 RAW steaks, they also have a minimum $25 charge for shipping (it goes up the more you order). If you can afford this, you can afford to swim with Scrooge McDuck in his Tower of Money.

kosher in lancsaster pa?

There is kosher food inside of Dutch Wonderland. You don't have to go to the park to get food, you can go to guest services and they will give you a pass for like 40 minutes to go into the park just to buy food. The kosher stand also sells discount tickets to hershey park as well. They are right across the street from the outlet malls. check out http://ourkehilla.com/ and their phone number is 717-392-5111.
