A true kosher restaurant can be hard to find. Some restaurants will claim they are kosher or “kosher-style” as a vague way to say that they are either healthy or serve Mediterranean food, which is a complete misunderstanding of the term. If a restaurant is designated as kosher, that means that it complies fully with Jewish dietary laws based on the Talmud. Nowadays, there are many organizations which help kosher eaters identify truly kosher restaurants in a given area. Here are a few of the best kosher restaurants in Orlando which are under the supervision of a mashgiach.
Kosher Grill Orlando
Certified kosher by the new Orthodox VAAD of Orlando (OVO), this meat restaurant is in a prime location on International Drive. Tourists and Orlando residents alike will find both traditional Jewish cuisine like falafel, schnitzel, and babaganush as well as American favorites like burgers and wings.
The most full-service kosher eatery in Orlando with a meat restaurant and dairy to-go, Kosher Gourmet is supervised by the RCF and Rabbi Yosef Konikov. There, you can dine-in and try Israeli sandwiches and deli favorites as well as American and Chinese dishes. Or, you go around the side to grab pizza, pastas, ice cream, and milkshakes to go from their separate dairy kitchen.
