I’m a sushi addict and its becooming a bit expensive to our kollel budget. My favorite type is California sushi, the solution to the cost is making it myself…. i just have one problem I can’t find imitation crab sticks anywhere in Lakewood!
Anyone know where to find them? Maybe there is a food specialty website where it can be found!?February 8, 2011 10:24 pm at 10:24 pm #747857bptParticipant
Are they much different than tilapia fillets? Or maybe fish sticks?February 8, 2011 10:25 pm at 10:25 pm #747858✡onegoal™Participant

That’s probably b/c REAL BRISKER made a hafgana against any store that would carry such disgraceful products!
That’s WORSE than Kosher Subway,which is probably worse than Giluy Arayos,Shfichas Domim and Avoda Zara COMBINED!
I’m joking but I’m sure there are people on here that think like that.
TRY EITHER OF THESE
ENJOY!February 8, 2011 10:30 pm at 10:30 pm #747861oomisParticipant
It’s made from pollock fish, and sold under the name “It’s Not Crab.” I couldn’t force myself to eat that, but I know many people who enjoy it.February 8, 2011 10:32 pm at 10:32 pm #747862

Anyone tried facon bacon sounds yummy? Huh?February 8, 2011 10:40 pm at 10:40 pm #747865✡onegoal™Participant
I was kidding! the next time you go to a restaurant that has them ask them where you can get them. There is a restaurant near me that makes and sells chulent with kishka and on erev shabbos (or Thursday night)if we didn’t get kishka yet the will sell us raw kishka to put in our chulent. I don’t know if any place near you will do this but I can only try.

Did you try one of the national supermarket chains? It is sold in the frozen foods section.February 9, 2011 12:59 am at 12:59 am #747868haifagirlParticipant
Why not make the sushi without crab? Make it with avocado and cucumber, or cucumber and carrots, or some other combination of vegetables.February 9, 2011 2:02 am at 2:02 am #747869jewishgirl09Member
Not sure where they sell it in Lakewood but you can get it in Pomegranate in BrooklynMarch 8, 2011 6:06 am at 6:06 am #747870i am hereMember

I belive you are not supposed to say YUCH , Disgusting , but rather I really want to eat that Crab or Lobster but that the TORAH forbids it.
Why would anyone want to eat those imitation crab things anyway, they taste like RubberMarch 8, 2011 8:45 pm at 8:45 pm #747872apushatayidParticipant

i am here writes, in part: “crab!!!!!! why would anyone want to eat anything that is copying somthing not kosher just knowing that its imitation crab sounds gross.”
Kosher is not about the simple pleasure of eating food that tastes good. It is about holiness and the fulfillment of Hashem’s mitzvos. If the rabbis say that “imitation crab” is kosher, there is nothing gross about it. You may not like it – and you don’t have to like it – but some of us think it is delicious, and if it is kosher, we can eat it, enjoy it, and, more importantly, bring holiness into the world.March 8, 2011 9:59 pm at 9:59 pm #747875
Actually i ended up finding it by Kosher Experience in Shoprite.
It was in the freezer section.
And to all thosse who dont like it “al taam v’reaich ain le’hisvakayach”.
If your bedavka eating it because you want crab, i can hear why people think its strange, but i like it because i always used to order california sushi! I don’t think there is any problem with it hashkafically but you can ask your lor for advice.March 9, 2011 1:13 am at 1:13 am #747876waiter1Member
