For $18, today's rabbi-approved side deal gets you $36 toward food at Eretz Kosher Foods, a healthy, affordable kosher deli on the Upper West Side. This deal is good for dine-in, carryout, or delivery, and includes everything on Eretz's Passover Seder menu, though you will have to place your order by March 24 in order to get it in time for Passover. Delivery (a charge of $10–$30 may apply depending on Manhattan location and size of order), tax, and tip are not included.
Though its chicken schnitzel is widely considered the best in the city (according to customers, "It's the schnizzle, for rizzle"), Eretz Kosher Foods also offers a wide array of kosher comestibles on its catering menu and Friday-night dinner menu. But beyond everyone's favorite mitzvah munchies (gefilte fish with horseradish, challah rolls, matzo ball soup, kugels), you'll also find more-global goodies, such as chicken tajine, barbecue chicken, Israeli salad, Moroccan salmon with chickpeas, Filipino beef strips with onion rings, and General Tso's sweet and spicy chicken. A variety of catering meals range from the simple (sandwich platters, $12.50 per person) to the elaborate (a Mediterranean dinner, $29 per person), while a six-course Friday-night dinner costs $36 per person. The Passover menu is a la carte, with entrees between $13.50 and $25 per pan and full-meal specials between $20 and $40 per person.
Eretz is under the strict kashrut supervision of New York Kosher (NYK) under Rabbi Yaacov Neiman. A Masgiach Temidi also supervises the facility at all times.
Suite101 recommends Eretz Kosher Foods for those looking for tasty Kosher food:
- Inside the cases were things like Southeast Asian noodles, Mexican Chicken, Mulligatawny Soup, Chicken Dumplings and Chinese Fried Rice. There were Filipino beef strips, a sweet and spicy Asian-style Chicken and a wonderful fish soup. (No, not with seafood…that really isn’t Kosher!). And the place was packed. – Debbie Kwiatoski
Six MenuPages users give Eretz a solid 3.5-star average:
- A great option if you don't feel like cooking but want something home made and delicious. Great schnitzel and apricot chicken. – mimi
- From hearty chullent [sic], with tender chunks of beef, and stuffed cabbage with generous amounts of meat and flavoring, to more simple dishes-- sauteed, fresh vegetables with garlic, and Spanish rice, the food from Eretz is truly delicious and satisfying. – Danielle
- I have walked by the sign: Best Schnitzel Sandwich but I thought it was just hyperbole. I finally tried the sandwich and it was delicious!!! – uwser
