Can YOu Help Me Find Good Kosher Cooked Food to Bring Home?: Philadelphia Area

Best Value in the NE is closed; the Shoprite Kosher Experience on Roosevelt Blvd has very little in prepared food: two kinds of chicken, and that's it. There will be 7 adults and three children: my daughter works, and I want to arrange an easy meal for all.

Meat would be preferable, but dairy is ok too. My kitchen isn't Kosher; I can't cook for so many in any case; what would you suggest for an easy tasty meal? Forget the kids--they are fussy eaters anyway.

Fall back I suppose would be three cut up rotisserie chickens, Plus what? I'd almost prefer good Kosher deli meat, or the bagels/lox/fishes solution, but haven't a clue where to go for those either... The day of this event is this coming Monday, but I'm going to be away for the weekend, and have to do that shopping tomorrow or Friday, or worst case: Monday morning.. Food would be fresher, but I can't deal with uncertainty of availability.

We will be coming back from the Cape May on Monday. Is the Shoprite in Cherry Hill outstanding, or not?

      I'[m in Center City, Philly, opposite the ARt Museum. OUr daughter & Family moved to Rhawnhurst; other daughter is coming in from Connecticut.

      Thanks for the Kosher link. I do depend more on Chowhounds for taste/appeal though, as from my perspective it has to be Kosher, but I like to know in advance about the taste-wow-quality factor.

        Based on a visit to Max and David's, while passing through your area a couple of years ago, I would highly recommend the food there. I've read very nice reviews of this place in the past, but haven't heard anything recently.
        There is a link on the list that vallevin provided.
        Good Luck!

          Max and David's was delicious. We were there last February. The owner was truly so nice and willing to please. They had a smallish kids menu as well.
