Dan's TR on DD

Mochjas TR

DDF DO Planning Thread

Seven Mile Market - supposedly the largest kosher supermarket in the country.

Market Maven (formerly Seasons) - great prices for meat and chicken, also good place for shabbos food


Hotels:
Only 1 Close and decent hotel to Jewish area (but not quite walking distance) is this Hilton Doubletree

Otherwise, there are a number of nice hotels downtown (which is also the inner harbor area) and near BWI airport. There are no shuls in the downtown area with regular minyanim, aside from Mincha minyanim in various offices.



Restaurants in the Jewish area (in no particular order):

Dairy

Dunkin Donuts - 2 kosher locations
Here and Here

Coffee Bean - 1 kosher location
Here

Sapori - sit-down Italian place

Milk & Honey Bistro - dairy homestyle cooking

Goldberg's Bagels - very good bagels and free wifi. Pikesville location is the one in the Jewish area

Mama Leah's - pizza that is a bit different, but IMHO (Lunatic), the best pizza in Baltimore

Tov Pizza - classic pizza shop - Mocha thinks this is a hell of a lot better than ^

Caramel's - pizza shop, also has sushi

Chef Dan's Cafe - located inside the JCC

Cocoaccinos - cafe with sandwiches and salads

Milk is and some products are powdered milk. There's a sign in the store that outlines all of that
thanks i guess I can assume reliable hecher for both locations? and that there will be various cold and hot flavored drinks with CY options as long as I leave the cream out ?

also if any locals can chime in I am trying to avoid paying the parking hotel fee in harbor area downtown.  I plan on coming Sunday and leaving Monday (presidents day)  good chance I can find free or cheaper street parking for those 2 days?

The hechsher is the same for both locations but make sure you actually see the sign, there is another store in the area which doesn't have a hechsher IIRC. The hot drinks that are made directly in their machines (hot chocolate, etc.) are going to OU-D AFAIK, it's just the generic DD powder.

For breakfast you canít go wrong with Goldbergs Bagels.
For lunch/dinner you have a few options. Fast food...Kosher Bite which has a mix of American/Chinese/Israeli. Dougies. David Chuís (Chinese). Accentís (American/Burger Joint).
And in case you have a change of heart, the only fancy place is Serengeti.

Def the Northeast. Haven't had much Chinese further out but it would be hard to match.

Al taam v'rayach... but imo it doesn't hold a candle to Eden Wok or NKS. And I still don't understand why DC is a sit down restaurant with table service.

Never had Eden Wok (is it the same one as the one in 5towns? If so, I personally am not a big fan of it.) NKS is definitely the best buy for your money and is probably my second favorite Chinese joint.

Kinda depends. Like it was said, if you want Chinese David Chus is great, though I know ppl who prefer kosher bite Chinese. Also Kosher nite is pretty solid all around. Great shawarma. If youíre with ppl it might be better to go to KB as they have a nice variety to choose from

I'm a big fan of kosher bite as well, shawarma is excellent (well for American shawarma anyway.)

About a year or two ago Kosher Bite hired the chef from David Chu. Now Kosher Bite is the better option for just grabbing food. Great taste, less expensive, no tip. If you're looking for ambiance, look elsewhere.
Dougie's is the best food in Baltimore though.

I was with you until this, now you've lost all credibility in my eyes.
