Moshiko doesn’t have such a good hechsher; McDonalds on Ben Yehuda is Mehadrin?February 24, 2019 1:55 pm at 1:55 pm #1684394
Do they all have good hechsherim?
@zahavasdad McDonalds is kosher? I have heard not!February 24, 2019 1:55 pm at 1:55 pm #16844011Participant
Cheap is relative.February 24, 2019 3:45 pm at 3:45 pm #1684455
The fast food places seem to change hashgachos more frequently than higher-end places so that I would always check in advance. Problem is that many have very simple websites advertising “kosher” without identifying the name of the rav ha’machshir or the specific hashgacha. I’ve even seen places with a te’udah in the window with the name of a Rav who was niftar years ago.February 24, 2019 3:53 pm at 3:53 pm #1684466
Oh lord please ignore all of those recommendations. The hecsherim are all a disaster, no yeshiva person would ever eat at any of those places. A good fast food place with a food hecsher is tommys in rechavia (burger place), Eli’s on shmuel hanavi (schnitzel), and like anything by the mir. Especially miros falafel. But please don’t eat any of those restaurants mentioned before. they’re all rabbanut ragilFebruary 24, 2019 4:29 pm at 4:29 pm #1684481
OJbochur: Is there a website (name only/no URL) that you think has a good listing of “good hechsherim” for fast food places in EY and that is also updated frequently….??February 24, 2019 5:42 pm at 5:42 pm #1684484
Not that I know of. Just ask a reliable rav which hecsherim are good and check restaurants accordingly. Also it goes by area, restaurants on Ben yehuda are much less likely to have a good hecsher than lets say beis yisroelFebruary 24, 2019 5:46 pm at 5:46 pm #1684503
Not that I know of. Just ask a reliable rav what the good hecsherim are in Israel and check each restaurant you go to. Different areas also have different standards, a place on Ben yehuda isn’t likely to have such a good hechsher, while In a place like, let’s say, beis yisroel, is pretty likely to have a reliable hechsher. i can give a list of a few of the basic hashgachos accepted by most if you wantJanuary 2, 2020 7:44 pm at 7:44 pm #1816961NechomahParticipant
I find it a bit odd that it says the last post on this thread was less than 2 hours ago, but the last post’s date is back in February.
But anyway, just to note, hechsherim in EY are not like in US. There are the big 3 or 4 good hechsherim that are all over the country – Badatz Eidah HaChareidis, Shearis Yisroel, Badatz (Rav) Landau, and Rubin. None of the Rabbanut hechsherim are very good if you consider yourself part of the yeshiva velt. no clue why anyone would recommend a yeshiva boy to go to Ben Yehuda area, full of pritzus. Like walking around in Time Square. As far as needing updating of a list, that’s not really necessary, as the hechsher must be clearly posted close to the entrance of the restaurant. Just check it out. Anywhere in Geulah has pizza, including Uri’s pizza, or falafel, Shlomo Falafel, or a few other ones down on Malchei Yisroel. I did hear a while back about an organization that is trying to work with restaurants and other food providers to see whether, even though they don’t have the top hechsherim (likely due to cost), they might still be a place where certain things can be eaten. I don’t have details about this, but can ask around the yeshiva areas to see if the Americans know of such a thing.
As far as a specific recommendation, I would say that at the Rav Shefa mall, there are a good few places, primarily Big Bite, where there is one very good restaurant with pizza and pastas, salad, toast, and also falafel all available in one location, and other places next door or a bit away that have fleishigs, including burgers. There used to be a fish place over there as well, but I’m not sure it still exists.
Happy eating!!!January 2, 2020 7:46 pm at 7:46 pm #1816967lowerourtuition11210Participant
Visit Mir in Yerushalyim and ask the bochurim there. They’ll tell you.January 2, 2020 8:25 pm at 8:25 pm #1817440☢️ Rand0m3x 🎲Participant

In Kaduri there are good places under Badatz (Atza Sushi and grill, Uri’s Pizza, some French fries only place and Shaarei Revacha Takeout). Rav Shefa Mall has parking too and Big Bite (fleishigs), Fish bite (yuck), Big Pizza (kids favorite). And a bagel place. Moti’s Takeout is under Pninat Chemed and is a partial restaurant weekdays. Mifgash Ha’Aish is also good Takeout and a restaurant weekdays. Under Rav Landau. Best Schwaof course is Halo Teiman at Knisat Ha’Ir in the gas station (like in Bnei Brak). That is Rav Machpoud. If parking isn’t an issue, runner up best Schwarma is Ma’Oz near Ben Yehuda. Silver Spoon is a food delivery place I never tried.January 3, 2020 7:51 am at 7:51 am #1818114Shimon NodelParticipant

“no clue why anyone would recommend a yeshiva boy to go to Ben Yehuda area, full of pritzus.”
No clue why any yeshiva boy would be walking around looking for fast food. Isn’t he supposed to be in the b”m shteiging away? What’s wrong with the food served in the cheder ochel?January 5, 2020 4:03 pm at 4:03 pm #1819149NechomahParticipant
Well, I don’t know about you, but maybe they want a change once in a while. Do you think that chareidi bochurim sit 24/7 in b”m?
