Deli Delights

Are you ready to turn your Shabbos meal into a deli extravaganza? Imagine sinking your teeth into juicy corned beef or tangy pastrami stacked high on rye. You can’t go wrong with a classic deli platter:

  • Corned Beef: Brined to perfection and oh-so tender.
  • Pastrami: Spiced, smoked, and just waiting to make your taste buds dance (the Horah, of course).

Feast your eyes (and soon, your mouth) on an entree with sides that’ll make you schmooze about your food choices for weeks to come.

Mediterranean Magic

Get your Shabbos groove on with flavors from the sunny Mediterranean. Aromatic herbs, olive oil, and fresh ingredients come together for dishes that are big on flavor and tradition:

  • Chicken Shawarma: Spiced just right and oh, so juicy.
  • Falafel: Golden and crispy, ready to pop into your mouth like it’s a party.

Dive into a platter that will transport you straight to the old country—minus the jet lag. Check out Chill and Grill that’s just a pre-order away.

Chinese Culinary Adventures

Craving something a little different for Shabbos? How does a Chinese takeout twist sound? Experience the thrill of the Far East with kosher adaptations of your favorite Chinese takeout:

  • General Tso’s Chicken: Sweet, spicy, and unapologetically saucy.
  • Beef Lo Mein: Twirling around your fork like a ribbon dancer.

Why settle for challah and gefilte fish when you could spice up your Friday night with Chinese culinary adventures? It’s like a fortune cookie came to life, only way more filling. If you want to do take out from Orchid Gardens be sure to order in advance because they are closed on Fridays. Ditmas also offers Chinese cuisine.

If your taste buds are screaming for some Kosher delicacies, Boca Raton won’t disappoint. Whether you’re chasing the sunset on a Friday evening or simply hankering for some quality takeout, these are the places that will have you doing the happy dance all the way home.

Ditmas Kitchen

What’s Cooking: If you’re after a meal that’ll make your grandma nod in approval, then Ditmas Kitchen is your go-to spot. No need to don a tie, but slapping on a clean shirt might be a good idea – it’s Kosher with a side of class.

Aroma On Glades

Flavor Bomb: Now, if your taste receptors are bored and craving adventure, Aroma will set them a-tingle with a menu that’s like an edible fireworks show. Tell your stomach to brace itself; this isn’t your run-of-the-mill nosh. Get there early for the best selection and be sure to take a number at the counter.  Watch for out of towners cutting the line (because everyone from Florida is perfect and would never do anything like this.

The Grove Kosher Market

Market Madness: Fancy cooking up a little something yourself? The Grove Kosher Market has got you covered with shelves bursting with ingredients. You’ll find everything to make your Shabbos spread the talk of the town. Be sure to check your packaged products for freshness because sometimes products sit on the shelves for too long.

The Grove has the widest selection of Kosher Wine in Boca Raton.

Winn Dixie in Beracasa

Winn Dixie has a kosher bakery with pizza.  A lot of the cookies come in from Israel.  The kosher counter has some Shabbos foods namely chickens, gefilte fish and some salads. But it doesn’t come close to The Grove or Aroma.

Pricing Out Your Shabbos Feast

When you’re planning your Shabbos menu in Boca Raton, you’ve got options that will keep both your stomach and wallet pretty comfortable. The Shabbos food scene here is like a smorgasbord of kosher delights, but let’s talk turkey—or chicken—about what you’re gonna shell out for that spread.

First up, picture this: a table brimming with enough food to feed a small army, or just your family, who sometimes eat as if they’re preparing for battle. Your Shabbos feast could include anything from traditional gefilte fish to a mountain of kugel. No judgement if you go back for fifths.

For The Whole Kit and Caboodle: At places like Ditmas, you’re looking at about $125 for a full meal that can feed four adults and two mini-munchers. Check your calendar though; orders usually need to be in by Wednesday night.

Remember, friends don’t let friends host Shabbos on an empty wallet. These guides to pricing are just to tickle your fancy—and your budget—and are subject to variations as wild as your cousin’s interpretation of the Haggadah. Happy feasting!

Remember, order early.
