Tiberias is not that bad of a hike to GC either.

Philly - Center City

Thank you.

I was saddened by Burger.org's closing in CC though I understand it wasn't that good. I always did take-out and my expectations were always met. I also like Blackbird. But the meat options have become (and really always have been) severely limited.

Why is Sodastream out of diet soda?

Have you tried Bed Bath & Beyond? I was there a few week ago on a SodaStream-related issue and although I wasn't looking for diet soda specifically I remember the store being quite stock with all things SodaStream.

Philly - Center City

What is the kosher restaurant situation in Philly these days? Haven't been in Center City in ages and may be making a weekend trip in a few weeks. Is Hamifgash the only meat option these days (aside from Penn Hillel, obviously)?

Gefilte Fish Panic

In years past, I've had luck at Freund's - they make their own gefilte fish. Maybe you can try them?

Kosher Food in Aruba

The last time we were there a few years ago the options were slim. A number of supermarkets carry heckshered foods of all kinds, but that's about it. This Chabad website seems to confirm:

Light dinner right near Madison Square Garden (Billy Joel!)

My assumption was that "light dinner" also means "quick dinner"!

Circa would be the fastest, no?

What recipe did you follow? I tried it a couple of times, but it never came out as I expected.

Date seed "coffee"

Couldn't find in NYC. Had a bag brought from Israel. Made by Ava Coffee.

Date seed "coffee"

Any ideas where I can get date seed coffee in NYC? I assume there must be an Israeli company that makes a version of it.

Teaneck - take-out?

What's a good restaurant for take-out around lunchtime on a weekday?

Shuka - kosher shakshuka truck

Has anyone tried it yet? Saw it parked by the Flatiron (in NYC) a few days ago.

Kosher Paris (St. Germain)

Need a recommendation for a kosher restaurant near-ish or in the St. Germain neighborhood. A friend wants to have a great last meal in Paris before heading back to the States. Would prefer French cuisine (which does mean foie gras) for his last dinner in Paris.

Fumio Grill & Sushi (Livingston, NJ)

Has anyone been? What's the feedback? I need a good business lunch place in that general area to replace Mosaica.

inexpensive Manhattan spot for a group of young professionals to eat, drink

Another option may be Colbeh. There's a bar area there as well as a more lounge-y feel. Though the price point is much higher.

Setting aside the discussion of kashrut certification, USQ/Penn Station area is tough. Perhaps Ben's Kosher near Penn Station is a good option since they have a sizable bar area and a full service bar which could encourage lingering. A few kosher-certified places in Curry Hill do serve a selection of drinkable beers, but they do not really have what I would consider a bar/pub ambiance.

Tiberias (on 34th St., a stones throw from Penn Station) could fit the bill as it does have a liquor license (although it may be limited) and a seating area that would do in a pinch.

London recommendations?

There is also a huge Selfridge's in Marlybone on Oxford and Duke Streets with a huge supermarket downstairs. You can by prepackaged kosher sandwiches, etc.

Not sure of the price point you are considering, but you can try Manna Catering (out of Long Island City). The owner/chef does private lessons as well.

kosher food in aruba

If you are staying at or near Palm Beach (on or near the hotel strip), there is a large supermarket within near walking distance located inside the Kong Fui Shopping Center. As an earlier poster said, a lot of US brands with familiar hechshers. If I recall correctly, I even found kiddush wine there. Didn't find it particularly expensive.

Shabbat in Paris Oct 26/27 2012

I ordered a nice meal from Etoile des Terne -- they even delivered it to my hotel before Shabbat. The owner went above and beyond to accommodate.

HaChatzer, Jerusalem

That's great. Glad I could help. I pigged out on meat there when I went - don't even remember their smoked eggplant or other vegetarian dishes.

Cheese

What about a selection from 5 Spoke. They do not sell directly, but I've seen a wide selection of its cheeses around NYC.

Whistler

I'm traveling to Whistler for a few days very soon. Any ideas for kosher food in the area (aside from Vancouver)? Are the supermarkets stocked with the basic staples?

Which Jerusalem hotel (neighborhood) for easy walks to the best food?

I highly recommend HaChatzer. I believe it is near Emek Refaim.

Vegemite [Sandwich]

I completely forgot about this thread until I saw your reply, AdinaA. I did manage to find a jar at the Australian food shop in the East Village. Still have a bit of it left. No regrets about trying it.
