Queens Kosher Consumers Get Ready To Check-Out Aron’s Kissena Farms Supermarket

One of the main reasons why my husband and I chose to live in Kew Gardens Hills, NY, was becaue of the number of kosher food options available. Since we’ve moved here five years ago, this number continues to increase. This week, Aron’s Kissena Farms will be celebrating their Grand Opening with incredible specials this Tuesday, February 2nd. These specials will last thru Thursday, February 11, 2010. Aron’s Kissena Farms is Located at 72-15 Kissena Bllovd., Flushing, NY 11367. There will be no shortage of free parking-in the 400-car parking lot-so you can shop like a mensch.  Customers will kvel over the new interior-designed by noted architect Dinesh Doshi who also designed ShopRite, Acme, Pomegranate and Lowes-a welcome improvement to the previous appearance of Kissena Farms.

The price is right, also. My husband has already given the meat prices a big thumbs up-Grade A Whole Chicken for $1.39 Lb.-get them while you can. This store is arriving just in time for people to start stocking up on food for their Purim Seudah (meal) and Kosher for Passover items as well. I’ll be there tweeting and eating, come find me @primetimeparent and let me know what you think of the new shopping experience.

In the last couple of months, a new restaurant has joined the kosher scene on Main Street as well.  The night I was supposed to get out with the moms from playgroup I fell asleep putting my kids to sleep. I spoke to them as they had just received a complimentary order of  bruchetta with parmesean toasts. They loved the food and said that the entries were large and delicious. The decor was new and fresh. This restaurant also has amazing takeout pizza with a price that we love. That is our new Sunday night place for pizza and the kids love it.  My friends also tried out their sushi and eggplant parmesan, which was grilled instead of fried because that is how she wanted it. 

If you are on your way to La Guardia Airport or taking the kids to the New York Hall of Science, definitely stop off on Main Street and let us know what your favorite kosher restaurant is!

Great Kosher Foodie Find in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida

Things have been pretty busy over here and I haven’t had a chance to update this blog since I my trip to Florida last month. You can see how much fun we had on Hutchinson Island, Florida in my recent post on Travelingmom.com  under TravelingKosherMom.

I still have so much to share about our kosher dining experiences at Walt Disney World as well as our meat lunch in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, at David’s East Side Deli. The place was clean and hip. The food was delicious, and the service friendly and fast. I had salad with a huge scoop of tuna fish salad on top, the portion was large and I even took some back to our room in Hutchinson Island, just 40 minutes north of David’s. It was well worth the drive and can be combined with some shopping in the area. This worked well for us because we were visiting family that were styaing literally a block away from the deli. Even though our family does not keep kosher, they loved the great tasting latkas, hamburg, whitefish salad, and hot dogs. 

It was so nice to get rave reviews from our non-kosher foodie family members and I think they will be heading back to David’s again soon, even without us kosher relatives in town.
