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

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)

Took POM meals for oven and they were delicious. A short while back took POM microwave meals and they were horrible.  Any other recent food place for microwave recommendations?
Maybe the microwave meals tasted horrible because you microwaved it. Microwaves are not known to make food taste that great.
I'm not who you think I am.

Most food is just not good in a microwave. Bring a toaster oven if you care about the taste.
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.

Many of the mealmart shelf stable meals are quite edible out of the microwave.

I used Grand and Essex to cater my last trip. The food was phenomenal, the portions generous, and way cheaper than POM.

They did not officially do travel meals until now (I used their catering service, as it was something like 60 meals), but they are now soft-launching them: https://grandandessex.com/#!/hb/m/000000/r/10980/he/New-Jersey/kosher-takeout/kosher-packages/frozen-meals-requires-4-days-to-process

Apparently now they have them for microwave only, and under the RCBC hechsher.

For my trip, they were able to pack the meals for the oven, as use the New Square hechsher (which certifies their catering, not the store). I am reaching out their deli manager to see if these options will be available.

After sending him feedback from here regarding microwave vs. oven, he has now added an oven option to all meals.

I have used him for other trips since my last post here, and my opinion stands: batter, cheaper, and bigger portions than POM. Highly recommended.

Last year I decided to experiment with bringing a sous vide to a hotel, as it doesn't require a stove, and was a real success!
Brought a sous vide, pot and griddle (to finish). Prepped all my bags before and brought in a cooler bag. Very little hassle with great results!

Based on the size of that griddle, you may as well have brought an oven.

I've been using sous vide ever since they became reasonably priced (specially on vacations) u can get a small culinary blow torch it works great too...
