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)

You can also easily buy power converters for under $40 that allow you to use 110v appliance in 220v countries
iirc @Something Fishy said its not that simple

You can cause a fire if you dont use the correct converters.
The correct type of converters are very heavy and not suited for travel.
Always praying for delayed baggage.

It depends on the wattage of the appliance. Blow dryers or other such high wattage appliances can cause fires when using an incorrect converter, but a mini 45w or less appliance won't do anything IME.

Anything that generates heat needs a giant converter or you'll break your appliance and/or burn down your hotel. Read the listed wattage on your device and get a converter of around twice that - and it'll be huge, heavy, and expensive.

I use a 45w appliance and it works fine with a 200w converter that is not huge and heavy. So that goes along with your theory of needing double the wattage as it's a lot more than double.

Do you mean 200w appliance on a 45w converter? Otherwise you're proving my point.

Anyways... I used to design, test, and manufacture those converters for a living. I've seen enough of them blow up in my day.

Feel free to take whatever risks you want, but don't go around peddling dangerous info.

And BTW - a point of clarification: doubling the wattage is for stability and reliability. For safety, the listed wattage is enough. Problem is - and I know this from both lab and practical testing - most manufacturers overstate the actual capabilities of their products.

In short: double your wattage and you'll be safe. In practice, for cooking and heating, just use a 220v appliance and it'll typically be cheaper and easier.

Not gonna argue with the pro  ;).

I was talking about using something like this (its 45w)

https://www.amazon.com/HotLogic-Mini-Personal-Portable-Black/dp/B00EC7XJ00/ref=sr_1_4?crid=2P9FIZDAS2A4S&keywords=hot+logic&qid=1579658816&sprefix=Hotlogic%2Caps%2C157&sr=8-4

With any of the widely available 200w stepdown converters. Works just fine.

Remember if you could do it, someone who cooled tief can do it.

Obviously I wrap my food in silver foil.  I wouldnít want an iron to touch my steaks even if it wouldínt be a Kashrus issue.
