Had a lot of Schalom Catering on LX J recently, and it's pretty bad. Borenstein or worse. Sorry, no pictures. They do provide a little bottle of bad barkan wine, but I'm not sure if it's a positive or negative.

I find them very good. Not Hermolis level but usually very tasty and often with a fresh simple salad.
