Dakshin II now Glatt Kosher

The word on the street is (and their website states it) that Dakshin is now OK Kosher as of the weekend!  It hails itself as the first and ONLY Glatt Kosher Indian food in New York City!

Make sure you go to this location only because their other location is not certified!

Dakshin Indian Bistro

1713 First Avenue (between 63 and 64 street)

My Most Favorite Food Opening Date!

We ate at My Most Favorite Food last night (review coming soon) and our waiter informed us that their new restaurant on the upper west side will be AMAZING and will be opening up on March 1st!  There will be sushi and an all new (dairy) menu to go with the restaurant!  He also mentioned that the 45th street location will be closing soon so they can renovate (we guess to match the standard of decor that will be in their new restaurant)!

If we are lucky they may bring the prices down too?! That’s wishful thinking! :)

Roya Kosher Pizza

Roya Kosher Pizza

Rating (out of 5): 

In continuation of my boycott of La Pizzeria (horrible service, overpriced menu, sub-par food), I decided to grab a quick bite to eat tonight at Roya Kosher Pizza in Great Neck.  This hole in the wall pizzeria somehow continues to survive however anyone’s guess as to how is still a mystery.  With the except of Saturday Night and after Yom Tov’s (when they are smart enough to open) this place is usually pretty dead.  Being tucked in the back of an outdated shopping center doesn’t help their case either.

2012 Cafe in Great Neck?

Does anyone know anything about this 2012 Cafe in Great Neck?  This awning has been up for a while but I can’t seem to find any more information about it other than the rumor that it is going to be a “bootlegged Carlos and Gabby’s”.  If you know anything please drop us a line in the comments!

PS.  The awning has a picture of a burger, fries, and a pita so we will assume it is a burger joint.

Costco has gone Kosher Krazy!

Costco Kosher

Picture 1 of 4

If you live in Nassau County, Queens or Brooklyn (and have a car) then you are in luck.  I was just at the Costco in Westbury and they have began to carry a full line of Kosher meat products in addition to a full section of cheese varying from mozzarella to Munster!  I believe the Costco in 5 towns also carries a huge selection… anyone want to drop us a line in the comments and let us know what they have?

While the prices don’t seem the best (see below) the quality is great from what I have bought so far.

The poultry is all Empire and the meat is all from Teva.

Some prices as of 02/16/2010

  • Empire boneless chicken breast – $4.99/lb
  • Empire chicken thighs – $1.99/lb
  • Empire chicken drumsticks – $2.49/lb
  • Empire whole chickens – $2.29lb
  • Teva beef roast meat – $7.49/lb
  • Teva beef brisket meat – $10.99/lb
  • Teva ribeye steak meat – $12.99/lb
  • Teva ground beef – $14.99/3 lb pack

More info on Basil in Crown Heights

I have an update on the new Pizza and Wire Bar “Basil” that will be opening up in Crown Heights via Ouri Ivory their project and restaurant coordinator.

First off this will be the first kosher wood oven pizzeria in Brooklyn (maybe even in NY???)  The place will be luxurious in design and have a full on gourmet menu (yum!) – from fresh fish to pasta to pizza.

They will also be open in the mornings and serve fresh pastries via their own in house pastry chef.

If you are worried about their hechsher then worry no more as they will be under OK Kosher supervision.

The only thing I don’t have is their opening date however I will post that as soon as I hear from them!

Kosher Gatorade!

This will be a new category I am going to test out called Products were I discuss new kosher products on the market!  The first product I just saw @elierosenfeld post on twitter and it is Kosher Gatorade! Finally! All these years of dehydration can be kissed goodbye!

You can check out which flavors are certified OU here.  Although you should make sure it is labeled OU as well since there may be some old un-certified stock still on the shelves.

This is very exciting news!

This is my wife’s favorite place to get sushi.  Always fresh, always tasty and the presentation is excellent (see slide show).

I wasn’t so hungry this time (it was after Shabbat) so we only got two rolls – the Mexican($8.95) and the Ninja($7.95) roll. (see slide show).

For specialty rolls this is a great deal as most places charge $10+ for the same thing (and it doesn’t even taste as good!)  The Mexican roll has fresh jalapeño on top which gives it an amazing spicy taste and their avacados are unbelievably fresh which makes Ninja roll is remarkable.  If you have a bigger appetite try the Leo roll and it was great as well.  They put fried onions on top and we all know fried onions make everything better!

They have the spicy mayo and eel sauce (it’s kosher, duh!!) self serve so you can get as much as you want.

Open Saturday nights and they have three chefs so u don’t have to wait long to get your food.

You know what I REALLY like about this place?  It is just a sushi restaurant.  That’s it.  Not a Pizzeria + Sushi.  Not a steakhouse + sushi.  They do one thing and they do it well instead of trying to do everything like most all kosher restaurants do.

Great place for a casual date or if u want to chill with some of your girlfriends and as you can see the place is nice and clean.

It’s a keeper!
