This place has savoury and sweet! Everything is fresh and home-made, and the quality is so amazing. I went there with my friends and it was honestly such a great experience!

I personally love this kosher market. I usually don't go here for meat, but their other goods. I did come for thanksgiving last year as I did a kosher turkey with challah stuffing. FANTASTIC! Their matzah ball soup is great too. One of the things I buy everytime I'm here is Russian Wissotzky brand hot tea. It's the most flavorful tea I've ever had anywhere. Most of the people working are Russian, but I speak a little Russian and they are always nice to me.

I find the service pleasant, mostly Russian Jews who are not that comfortable with American style of service. I can overlook it-their intention is to be helpful.

I find the actual meat to be quite good-they will order anything I want (short ribs, lamb, roasts, etc) and have it for me to pick up. I like the butchering-thickness of chops, trimmed meat.

I lived in NY where I had 20 kosher markets in a radius of 15 miles (the size of a small Safeway store where EVERYTHING in them was kosher with a reliable hechshir).

So, Israel's may not be the best kosher butcher I've been to-but the service, quality and the prices for kosher meat are certainly the best we have in the Bay area.

I for one do not want a kosher business to close, so I support them.

Pros: Always gets whatever I order-Quality meat-Reasonable prices

Cons: Living in Marin not easy to get to

Every time I go there they don't have soup chickens in stock. Even worse, they never have pupuk (gizzards) or other organ meats which is the only way to make the best soup. I asked today if they simply have necks and backs. They don't have that either. Once, they offered me a pound of legs to make a soup with a turkey neck. Sorry, folks, but that's not real chicken soup. The folks behind the counters are kind of surly, too.

I now go elsewhere.

Pros: Neighborhood shop, small business

Cons: Don't have soup ingredients. Ever.
