Boneless spare ribs with wild mushroom rice and popcorn cauliflower.  The ribs were moist and delicious, Iíd order them anytime in a restaurant.  The popcorn cauliflower was fantastic as well.

Sesame chicken, Chicken Tortellini with pesto sauce, and Balsamic Baby Portabella Mushrooms.  The Sesame chicken was good though it could have used more sauce.  The mushrooms were great and the chicken tortellini was very good as well.

Eggplant Rollatini.  This stuff is unbelievable.  Eggplant loaded with ricotta, tomato sauce, and cheese. Itís probably the best eggplant dish Iíve had in my life.  An absolute must try.

Eggplant Parmesan was the absolute best Eggplent Parmesan Iíve had in my life as well. Itís such a pleasure to eat so well while traveling.

Penne a la Vodka was good, though overshadowed by our massive portions of out of this world Eggplant dishes.

Honey Mustard Corned Beef.  This was a truly awesome mouth-watering dish.  Thick juicy slices of tangy corned beef, itís a real treat.

Glazed dark meat chicken stuffed with pastrami was awesome.  The couscous and green beans were good as well.

I wasnít such a fan of the Sino steak as it was a bit tough.

Fettuccine Alfredo was creamy and fantastic.

Baked Ziti was delicious as well.

Lasagna was good, but not quite up to par as some of the other dairy meals.

Absolutely perfect Chicken Marsala though I wasnít such a fan of the Shlishkes. The grilled Portabella Mushrooms were very good.

Hot pastrami was very good, but just canít compete with the honey mustard corned beef.  The Garlic mashed potatoes were phenomenal!

Ancho Marinated Hanger Steak had a fantastic flavor though it got a bit dried out unfortunately.  The grilled vegetables were very good.

The Mac and Cheese was very good, though obviously not as good as when the hotel heats it up for you.

Spicy Southern Fried Chicken Nuggets are outstanding.  The seasonings are just amazing.  The only thing Iíd like with it is a dipping sauce so it was perfect that we also had the meatballs below!

Meatballs were very good in a tasty sauce.

Mini stuffed cabbage were excellent as were the roasted potatoes and garlic string beans.

But this was what really blew me away.  The Delmonico steak in a red wine reduction was far superior to the steak that youíll receive in your local steakhouse.  And when a store figures out how to make a frozen steak that is reheated taste better than what most steakhouses serve Iím left completely speechless.  Plus itís packed with 2 of my favorite sides-the garlic mashed potatoes and popcorn cauliflower.

From various DDFrs -
 Honey mustard corned beef and the spare ribs were delicious.
The garlic green beans were a great side dish.
The cheese blintzes were fantastic
Sesame chicken, Chicken Tortellini

Every single dish, whether a fancy rib steak or simple tzimmes, was absolutely delectable. The General Tso's was saucy, spicy, and delicious

@Yehuda - August 2015:
Great - BBQ chicken nuggets, Baked breaded chicken cutlet, Buffalo chicken wings, Cheese blintzes, Penne ala vodka, Popcorn cauliflower, Roasted potatoes were great.
Okay - Ribs too fatty for me, Fire Poppers Chicken Nuggets too spicy for me, Garlic broccoli, Mashed potatoes
Bad - Roasted asparagus (was white asparagus)

What Do You Do For Kosher Food While Traveling?
« on: June 23, 2008, 03:38:44 PM »
I'm curious to hear how other people deal with kosher food when traveling to places without kosher food.

I have a number of ways that I've dealt with this, but first I'd like to hear about what others have done.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Thank you Dan, I've been wondering what to do for food when I'm in Paris and Rome (Venice and London should be a bit easier).

I take along the Labruit dinner or the meal mart dinner trays, they taste great and are a breeze to warm up, you have an instant meal ready in 5 minutes (thy also have chulont for shabbos) and if you eat a good breakfast you can skip luch or snack on fruit or crackers.

If there is kosher food there I just buy it at the destination, otherwise I usually manage with cold cuts and whatever ou/ok/kof-k products are available at the local grocery

Order Chap-a-Nosh travel meals. Most hotels will store the meals for you and warm them up for you as you need.

I've tried a few different methods:

1. I had House of glatt in crown heights shrink wrap 20 meals, each with a piece of shnitzel and a potato knish.  The entire cost wasn't much over $100 IIRC.  I would try to refrigerate the whole bag wherever I stayed and I was able to take 2 meals to last me the day when I was out without worrying that it would spoil.    Shrink wrapped cold cuts and other food items work well too.

2. I've done La Briute meals, but some of them (like the parve ones) are not so good.  It is nice to have an instant hot meal without any cooking utensils that requires no refrigeration.  The cheese ravioli flavor is good with a healthy helping of Barilla pasta sauce that you can pick up at the local grocery store.

3. Shlep along a pot and cook noodles. Bring along some dried cheese sauce like from the Old city Cafe Mac and Cheese boxes and I'm good to go.

4. Tibors, a local butcher shop in Cleveland makes a great and spicy dried salami roll.  This lasts for weeks without any refrigeration.

There's more I'm forgetting...I'll update as I remember them.
