I am looking for a Parver dark chocolate mini chunks or chips. Now that Whole Foods discontinued their dark chocolate mini chunks, I am stuck using sub-par kosher brands. Any ideas?

I found those in Whole Foods $5.99 per bag. Kosher Parve under Kosher Peru -

Amba in Oakland - Is it worth the drive?

Amba is OK. I would drive from Berkeley, from SF - may be, from Palo Alto - no. I would better drive from PA to Jerusalem Grill and Bar in Campbell: or go to Izzy's bagels. . There is also a new sandwich place in Palo Alto - Roast Shop near University ave. It is under VAAD.

Anything in the Silicon Valley?

There is no fresh prepared meal, only cold cuts like empire turkey bologna.
There are some frozen staff like latkes and chicken nuggets, and I believe some Meal Mart meals, but better call Mollie Stone's directly - 650-323-8361.

Milchig seder

I never tried it with fish dishes. But you can put your dish in casserole, cover it. Wrap it in paper, wrap it in couple towels, put it in bed, cover it with couple pillows and put warm blanket on top. It should stay warm for 3-4 hours. Try it before Passover and see.

Kosher Caviar - What's the Best?

If you don't need to buy 12 items directly from - contact russian food store in you area. They probably sell Awers Inc salmon red caviar. My local store does. Price is almost the same as on the web.

Lindt Chocolates

Do not assume that dark chocolate designated as kosher-dairy without any dairy ingredients is DE.
Manufacturer could add traces of milk crumbs to prolong shelf life of dark chocolate.
