Sigh.
IIRC I haven't in the past, but that's just because I didn't know if it was OK or not.

Rarely helps.
Which Rav in Israel did you hear that from?
Rav Teitz told me he eats in restaurants that have Rabbanut Yerushalayim Mehadrin supervision, not the plain Rabbanut Yerushalayim. He also said he eats non-fleishig products that are Rabbanut Yerushalayimg (presumably products as in that which you find in a grocery store).

Dan, I feel your pain. Go through when I visit Israel as well. As much as you don't know what's appropriate to eat at it gets even harder when your friends and family want to go out to places that you know you definitely wouldn't eat at.

Crave for example is Mehuderet, whatever that's supposed to mean. What sort of questions would you ask the mashgiach?

Teuda:


Before you ask any questions, find out what mehuderet standards are because even the uneducated ppl everybody bashes over here usually donít eat it. Then take a look at this. I showed it to a rav he wasnít happy with most of the hechsherim listed. Itís from November so things could have changed since then.

What is the Rubin standard for wine opening?

Was at a restaurant tonight and the waiter opened the bottle.

CMIIW, but if the wine is Mevushal, anyone can open or pour.

Donít think anything changed since November.

Most? Which of those are and aren't good?
Where does that list come from?

Well obviously Rubin is good. I didnít get too technical about each specific one because regardless of that list I wouldnít really eat there because the hechsher on the place is mehuderet. I think crave made that list themselves.

Bottle was not Mevushal. Regardless certain restaurants always had the Mashgiach open the bottle, I'm wondering if that was a Hashgocha policy or location/Mashgiach policy.
