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

fascinating. Then he bought a $27 million mall in Prince George's County.

He owns a lot of the RE along the Reisterstown Road corridor.  The shopping center where Goldberg's and Mama Leah's is, the building right across from Caramel's (where his office is based), and a bunch of others.  As well as that mall he purchased and a bunch of other shopping centers.

Serengeti report:

I finally made it over to serengeti this week and had a great experience overall. I had planned on using gift cards from great kosher restaurants (SBS), but they did not arrive in time, so I had to actually spend money 😔😭

We ordered the following:
Ribs appetizer - very soft and good sauce, but the meat itself was not so flavorful.
Short rib egg rolls -  these were a special,  but according to the waitress,  they are available most days. You get 2 large egg rolls filled with delicious soft meat and a really good dipping sauce. These are amazing,  definitely a must have.
Picture is below.

We ordered 2 steaks:
Rib steak - cones with a choice of sauce,  and is pretty good
Chili Rubbed Steak Tournado with Peppercorn Sauce -  a bit spicy (which the menu does say)  and very different yet delicious (picture below)

Pretty reasonable. 50 is their prix fix menu, otherwise, 40 to 50 per person

Serengeti is definitely getting on my bad side.  Tried going last night for dinner but they were closed for a private party.

Perhaps they are up to the "needing reservations" level and they'll need to be called in advance. I got a rib eye steak from Moti's Grill last night. The seasoning was great and the steak was huge, but it was very tough. What's the consensus with Moti's overall? It's really in Rockville, so maybe posted elsewhere. The mashed potatoes and green beans that came with the steak were excellent -- a 10/10.

Yup, saw that. I think it was Serengeti that did them in. Umami was the nicest in Baltimore and had alcohol, but it really was nothing special. Now that we got a nice place, they are shot because better and cheaper Chinese can be had at David Chus.

Dan, you got to try the egg rolls at Serengeti - Much better than the Avocado at La Gondola
