Yes, that was probably the only dish I had that was not great. Vegetable balls would be more accurate.

I was trying to figure it out -- they were tasty ball shaped items, but definitely not felafel tasting...  ;)

If he joins her activities then fine, otherwise leave him be.

agreed, however it would be helpful if they can do a background check on someone who handles large sharp knives and a busy, crowded Jewish restaurant every day.

...perhaps it's the purpose of the DDF forum...  8)  to spread this knowledge and to elevate these items into Gdliness.
I thought it was to sell chocolate chips

.....haaa..... funny,
actual purpose of creation is for us to care for all Jews and to elevate the high-sourced sparks that are hidden in materialistic and mundane places.

So, yes, caring for Jews who need quality parve Belgian chocolate, plus to elevate the cocoa beans and make a bracha -- that's all part of elevating the mundane and materialistic.   ;)

For that you'll have to do more intense studying, the purpose of your creation should not be learned via forum imho

Originally posted in Cancun master thread as directed, seems more appropriate here. Hope not a major forum violation (still new to this).

Looking for destination advice in the Caribbean Islands/Cancun area.
Important factors: Direct flight under 5 hours (only 3 day trip), nice but secluded beach area (couple is careful about tznius), water activities, good value, not too touristy, kosher products either available or can be brought in (not necessarily a restaurant), and other activities (i.e. rain forest/hiking, zip-lining or other).
Other advice: Resort stay or house/cottage rental, specific activities, and car rental or not.

Thanks in advance

St. Thomas has a lot of the things that you mentioned -- mostly on the other side of the island, away from where the cruise ships dock.

72%? Cocoa chunks? Where do I get those ??

Can we see a pic

These are in Cleveland, Pittsburgh, and Silver Spring so far. Nut-free, dairy-free, etc....
Coming to Crown Heights/Brooklyn. Once the packaging is complete, 300 stores will have these.

Kantina exceeded my expectations. Delicious.

did you happen to try their felafel balls? Hoping that they're more Israeli style now...

Maybe if you paid then you can be the exclusive Chocolate Chip of DDF and no other chip can be posted like Mint Coins....

sounds good. I think that California Gourmet is still Dan's favorite dairy-free chocolate chip. And, now there are 4 types to pick a favorite type:
 (plus the 72%-cocoa chunks, too.)

the one on the right is the brisket. It was ok, not as soft and juicy as strait smoked but still good. Would I do it again? Only if I can't smoke, like a Saturday night BBQ.

It was recommended to first smoke the meat for a few hours and then to sous vide it for several hours in order to be both smoky and juicy.

Why would you waste SPG on avois? You don't have UR?

Making an Avios ticket this week. need to refill UR.
Good point. Thank you. will restratgize. (Also they closed a bunch of local Office Depots recently. Will do more research for those and local Staples.)

Lol, I agree, I'm not sure why they hadn't brought any food with them. Doesn't change the fact that they should be owed some sort of compensation.
+1
especially if they purchased a few international business class tickets.
