Post Pesach Update for my upcoming trip:

What, in your opinion, are the best restaurants in Yerushalayim for a nice dinner?
And the best for a dairy or pareve lunch?   

Thanks!
Bump

No need to answer but I'm curious why you want something on the "mehadrin" level.
Do you know anything about any of the different types? Anything at all about their standards? Have a Rav in Israel who knows them well who told you Mehadrin is good but not less?
Iím aiming at matching the level I eat here which is Glatt Kosher and with what I believe is a reliable hashgocha, such as OU. I really do not know much in response to your questions. Once upon a time when I visited my kids in Yeshiva in EY they set the Mehadrin standard which I continued to follow.

You should probably try to give an idea of what hechsherim you eat. 1868 is rabbanut IINM & crave is rabbanut mehuderet.
Apparently they are both Rabbanut Mehuderet. Is that same as Mehadrin? I would want something on the Mehadrin level.

How does Gefen explain the label? More importantly, what will they do to inform the public before Pesach? Not everyone will read the English, especially if sold in Israel and even here in some Chasidishe areas.

What rolling garment bag would you recommend? Looking for it to hold a suit, and several dresses.

Mishma berura says you should say, sharei teshuva quotes a yavetz not to say
Would be interesting to know the rationales of each opinion.

Machlokes. Some consider erev pesach an issur melacha
How do they burn their chometz?

It's actually only 5 of us (3 kids) and I did only pay for one room at Marina Bay sands.  They are super strict about only allowing 4 people per room (and give you a card for each person to enter the pool and viewing area) plus I refuse to be squashed in one room with my family (others are makpid about flying only in F and J and this is one of my things I need for an enjoyable vacation) so I think I came up with a creative solution that y'all DDFers will like and will explain in that section of the TR!  :P

It could be you're busy, especially before Pesach  :), but know that your DDF trip report readers are looking forward to the next installment and probably curious, as I am, about that creative solution.

What is the cost of Shabbos meals for hotel guests per person?
Someone answered either $110 or $150. Anyone know for sure? Also, is it the same price if I invite an outside guest for a meal?

Agreed. His thinking is that people are looking around online anyhow and they are better off with a site which will at least be accurate. With medical sites there are also the better and worse ones.

It is a fact of life nowadays that many people "Google" every question on every topic, or otherwise look to the web for information, and most know how to take results with a grain of salt and realize that websites may not be accurate (anyone can post anything) and are often trying to sell them something. It is a tool that can be very useful, but you just have to recognize and understand its limits. Eizeho chochm halomeid m'kol odom.
