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

From SF Maui TR http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=46759.msg968426#msg968426
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)

Keep in mind the Basar Shenisalem min Haayin issues.
Make sure its sealed where you would be able to tell if it was broken.

Isn't it double-sealed?

Actually not sure.

Double sealed is definitely required when heating up but for this issue may be different.

Guess it can't hurt.

double wrapping is required for heating (blios) doesn't need to be tamper-proof
double sealing (2 simanim) is required for basar shenislalma min ha'ayin it doesn't necessarily have to be totally sealed just tamperproof

Thanks, sounds right.

So AussieBochur was right when he said:

Make sure its sealed where you would be able to tell if it was broken.

But you have to be double-sure (with two simanim).

if there isnt a reason to switch it (ie: its cheaper not like the famous story of the guy on the plane who went to wash... that story doesnt reflect halachah, it would have been mutar to eat it)

In am pretty sure a double seal is only necessary for an fry Jew and for a goy a single seal is enough but ask a shaila.
In terms of the OPs question, I have had success putting meat in a cooler and just adding ice when necessary
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

I contacted the owner of kosher restaurants gps and they said that every place they add to their database they first check who hashgacha and they have a list from someone who works at the OU and the CK of reliable hashgachas. If its on the list they add it if not they wont. They did say that places change hashgacha and as soon as they know they will delete if unreliable. But thats why they say on their APP "call before going to verify hashgacha and to check hours of operation" I guess you have to use some common sense when traveling.

I bought one from Costco for a trip to Hawaii once.  Not really necessary unless you have a lot of perishables and will be away from refrigeration for extended periods of time during the trip.
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.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Where do you live? Some times your local butcher shop will have one.

thanks. Just thought it would be miles better than a ziploc bag.

Im sure they can but I was wondering how useful is it to buy one.
