I don't know how to edit the wiki so anyone who does should please do so based on this-in TLV there is a Rabbanut Mehadrin Tel Aviv Pizza hut before going through security. After Passport control in the food court there is an Aroma espresso bar that is Chug Chasam Sofer. The rolls in the dan lounge is from angels bakery and they have mehadrin yogurts, butter, etc....

Also Shipudei HaTikva in departures (after security) has a good hechsher, and Arcaffe and Burger Ranch after security are under Rabbanut. Burger Ranch before security is also under Rabbanut

This is actually one of the reasons I don't love travel in Israel.  I have absolutely no idea what's actually OK to eat :P

I think the best way to do the TLV section is like all Israel info pages on the forum-to list the establishment and exactly which hechsher it is and then let each man decide for himself......Whats good for one is not kosher for another :D

I think the only way to approach it is to find a Rav who is knowledgeable in Israeli Hashgachos and follow him for advice.

Disclaimer: My post is meant to be helpful, not to start an arguement/machlokes.

Eida Hareidi is most widely accepted by most.  Badatz Mehadrin (Rav Rubin) and Rav Landau (lubavitch) also.  Yes, Rav Landau from Bnei Brak is considered a high hashgacha even by nonchabad.  Eida Chareidi Belz is high, but many litvish won't use only because of masoret.  Badatz Bet Yosef is excellent for sefaradim, not ashkenazim.  Chasam  Sofer Petach Tikva or Bnei Brak changes back and forth through the years.  Many who keep a strict standard used to use Rabbanut Yerushalayim Mehadrin, but stopped a number of years ago.  Even if you use the OU in the US, the OU from E-Y is totally different.  Many/most who keep a stricter level don't rely on it for many products.

Plus there's like a million more. :) I also know people who will eat Rabbanut Yerushalayim (not Mehadrin) and won't always eat Eida Charedis bc they know of "stuff" that goes on there. Which is why this conversation will never be simple.

Added two delivery options to JFK that I found while randomly reading one of Dan's TRs. Anyone know if these still deliver to the airport, and if any others offer the service to the airport too? What about to LGA, no place in Queens KGH offers delivery there?

Hi everyone,

Is it possible to order a KSML at the Wing and the Pier F lounges? I have a long layover (but not long enough to get out of the airport) in HKG and don't want to go hungry.

Thanks!

My questions was whether you can get food from one lounge then go to the other and eat there. I.e. does CX have any way/reason to stop you from pre-ordering 2 KSMLs via the 2 lounges
