I went to Gourmet Glatt on Friday and saw at the Chap A Nash counter a piece of white Turkey breast. I asked the person at the counter how much it was. He said - sliced or unsliced. I said what is the cost for each. He said $6/lb unsliced, $15/lb sliced. $9/lb to slice turkey breast?
Gourmet Glatt is a nice store and has a few items on sale, but expensive. I went there on Friday because Brachs ran out of roasted chickens (they had fried but my diet excludes it). I headed to Gourmet Glatt and bought 2 chickens and two sides (cole slaw and cucumber salad). The total at Brachs would have been $20 (their prices went up). Total at Gourmet Glatt for the same was $34! $10/chicken (no sides) and the cole slaw and cucumber salad was $7/lb. For $30 I could have gotten from Traditions 2 chickens, 3 sides, 6 slices gefilta fish and two quarts of chicken or chicken gumbo soup.
Regarding the Turkey Breast-
Sounds like guy was confusing the fresh roasted turkey breast, cooked and carved from a fresh roasted Turkey in the Chap a Nosh kitchens($15/lb), with the Empire-type Turkey Breast that the guys behind the counter just slice for you, but is brought in pre-cooked, in an oval shaped tube ($6/lb). I don't think it makes a difference whether you buy it whole or sliced, but I know they refer to the fresh turkey as "Fresh sliced turkey breast".
PS Got a coupon in the mail today that Tradition's will give you the shabbos special for $30 WITH a free kugel thrown in now.
I guess his confusion was my gain since I bought the whole quarter roasted turkey breast for $6/lb.
I too noticed the Traditions coupon in todays mail and will redeem it in short order (probably this shabbos). I went to Traditions tonight and tried their buffet. Not as extensive as Wing Wan in West Hempstead by a long shot, but for $13 not a bad deal. Wish they offered it on Sunday though.
Choice of chicken or chicken gumbo soup.
Some kind of pasta salad w/spinach
Meat shish kabobs
Eggplant stuffer with meat
Chunks of chicken in bbq sauce
Some kind of macaroni salad
I may have missed one or two more items.
For $13 I would go again, problem is that the buffet is Monday. I usually don't go to restaurants Monday night. Sunday is my preferred night out. For that I like to go to Wing Wan, their buffet is Sunday with a huge selection.
The Tradition coupon was for a free kugel when you buy their shabbos special - 2 chickens, 3 sides, 6 slices gefilta fish and 2 quarts of soup for $30. The coupon was also for, I believe, 20% the check when you dine in. I called my daughter and told her to not throw out hers if she doesn't plan on using it :)
Let’s see if I can remember some of their offerings.
Chinese noodles w/duck sauce
Egg drop soup
Sushi platter (my daughter had a field day with this)
Chicken shish kabob
Chicken nuggets in crispy fried topping
Beef and mushrooms
Chicken w/ Chinese vegetables
Beef w/Chinese vegetables
Corn on the cob
Cakes and cookies
There were more mains but I can’t remember.
