    This oy-bay site is great! FYI, Holyland restaurant is in Oakland-not Berkeley. Also, sadly, Rafaels closed.

    There’s actually a Holy Land both in Berkeley and in Oakland. The Berkeley one is on the corner of College and Ashby.

      The Berkeley one is kosher “style,” which is not actually kosher. The Oakland one is actually kosher. The website this brings you to is the Oakland one.

    Ah, thanks for clearing that up, Daniel! I thought I recalled there being some confusion about that back when I was a student at Cal.

    It was awesome meeting you the other night! Yasher Koakh on your latest masterpiece! 🙂

    There is a possibility of a restaurant opening in Santa Cruz which will be kosher/mexican/cholov yisroel/fish grill. I am working with the owner on the idea right now. It will be certified kosher by the Vaad Hakashrus of Northern California. I need emails from people who will be willing to come to the restaurant and try it once it’s set up. Please email me at max722@aol.com to show your support. Thanks, Mordechai Feinberg, 831-600-7485

    Why aren’t there any kosher butcher shops in the south bay? I know there used to be one over in Willowglen (I think?). I know I can schlep up to San Francisco to get some but come on. Maybe I’m wrong and there is a place to get lunchmeat that I’m missing (I hope)?


  9. Sorry Jeff, no Kosher butcher’s in the south bay. The Willow Glen butcher closed years ago. Nothing has replaced it.

    Hey Jeff,

    There’s no place to get freshly cut kosher meat in the South Bay, as ChallahBackGirl said. But there are plenty of places in the South Bay to buy kosher meat (pre-packaged locally or shipped). From what I hear, the Palo Alto Mollie Stone’s periodically gets their kitchen kashered, and they prepare various cuts of meat for sale. But be sure to validate this with the fine black-hatters at Emek Brakha.

    Keep the comments coming if you have further questions.
