      i should have asked earlier but do they take cards and can we do individual meals instead of familystyle? I ask bc i dont have cash and a light eater so rather get an individual meal.

      On my arrangement forward, one would always pay what one ordered, that simple! Or some people can share among themselves if they so wish.

    Thank you all for coming. The walk and food were good and so as the company. Rise, I was expecting you to walk back to Bronx from Chinatown! LOL!

    Kosher means "prepared in accordance with Jewish law," so
    Chinese (or any other) kosher food would be prepared this way. Here are some links:

      Thanks, Rise & James. These links are quite educational. Looking forward to meet you two again on Saturday.

      Here is some info from the sites regarding Kosher veggie: An additional, major source of food is produce – fruit and vegetables. All unprocessed fruits and vegetables are kosher. However, two caveats must be tacked onto that sweeping statement:

      Certain varieties of fruits, vegetables and grains are prone to insect and must be inspected before use to avoid consumption of forbidden insects. Produce grown in the Land of Israel is subject to additional laws (tithing, Sabbatical year, etc.) which must be taken into consideration when eating Israeli produce.

      Once produce has been processed – cooked, parboiled, or even squeezed as juice – it can no longer be assumed kosher, because of the pitfalls presented by added ingredients or problematic equipment, as we shall discuss below.

    I changed the scheduled a bit for non-walking people:

    MEET #1 (walk before lunch): 10:30 AM at Grand Central Information Booth. MEET #2 (lunch only): 1:00 PM at 5 Mott Street in Chinatown. Leader: Jimmy [masked]) or email ([masked]). Contact hike leader directly if you have questions about the hike.

    You know, Joe, to be frank, I don’t know. I goggled “Chinese Kosher Vegetarian Restaurant/ Food” and came up with nothing. I don’t know if this will help….during my childhood in Midwood section of Brooklyn, some of the Chinese Restaurants in the neighborhood were labeled “Kosher”. I think it had something to with the ways the meat was prepared or purchased. I would assume Chinese Kosher Vegetarian Restaurant has something to do with the ways the food is cooked. Anyway, I had a friend, Rise ate there couple months ago and she liked it (I was suppose be there).
    Oh, again, we will pay what we ordered or you can share among your groups, just like the last time.
