Opinions on Meal Mart, etc. packed travel meals?

(And had anybody ever had Glatt Gourmet in Lakewood pack meals for them?)

Thank you!

  1. I have used the microwave meals from MyOwnMeals (http://www.myownmeals.com) while traveling. They have about 10 different ones (some dairy) and they are all very good. I've bought them at Glatt Express in Teaneck but I'm sure other stores in NY/NJ sell them as well.

    1. The Meal Mart shelf-stable meals are really quite good for what they are, and are the best of the ones I've tried. There's no self-heating mechanism, but I've immersed them in hot water and they've been fine.

      1. My favorite shelf-stable meals are MyOwnMeals.

        If there are facilities for refrigeration, it's a whole different ball game. Often, the best choice is the nearest, Hermoulis in England/Wales, Andrew in Boston, Prime Grill in New York. And many of these can ship long distances, like from Boston the the National Parks.

        Noah's does a large scale business in this sort of refrigerated meal shipping. They do it well. But so do many regional places. Aroma near Miami for parts of Florida that lack Jewish communities, for example.

        One caution. Places that send only an occassional meal to a hotel sometimes do an amateurish job, i.e., red sauce that leaks from containers all over the concierge.

        1. The LaBriute line is okay, nothing you'd crave if there were alternatives, but a decent product when it's the only game in town.

          1. I strongly concur regarding MyOwnMeals. They have been stalwart companions of mine around the world.

            1. If you mean the kind that you have to heat up, I like Meal Mart and Mon Quisine. Mon was surprisingly good last time I had it. Turkey and stuffing in particular. Veal was good too.

              1. re: cappucino

                I thought Mon was Meal Mart's pareve line.

              2. I haven't tried them yet but Goldbaum's (they make gluten free pasta, ice cream cones and crackers) now have 4 shelf stable meals that look interesting. I have found them at severel gluten free online stores and at Amazon (which isn't always the cheapest).

                I also second the recommendation regarding MyOwnMeals. Five of them are gluten free and have been my standby for travel and hospital/rehab stays for the last 10 years.
