Any Kosher offerings in Union Station, Washington, D.C.?

I have a tight connection at Union Station- anyone know if there are kosher packaged sandwiches or similar food I can pick up for the train ride?

  1. There might be Wraps2Go kosher sandwiches available at Top's Frozen yogurt bar.

      great- I will check it out. thank you!

    2. Here's the report: Near Track A, next to a Sbarros, there's a Tops Fro Yo place. Behind the counter there's a small fridge and a sign saying there are kosher wraps to go sandwiches. the choices were chicken or turkey- I got turkey ($7.00) on rye and ran for the train. The sandwich contained two packets each of mayo and mustard, and rather limp lettuce and a slice of tomato. The turkey slices were actually pretty tasty. Overall, the convenience couldn't be beat, since there was no way I would have been able to buy or carry something else between meetings and still get to my train.

        COOL! Best part is I know EXACTLY where the case is located:) THANKS!

          Thank you. I found them. Just where you said they would be.

            Glad they are still selling sandwiches there. Very convenient for the hungry kosher traveler.

              It was convenient. But the Top's Frozen yogurt bar has disappeared. There is a Crumbs cupcakes, but that's about all there is, alas.

        2. But the Acela has Bubbie's brand tuna sandwich, with an OK, on nice bread. Actually, pretty tasty.

            Acela also offers kosher meals in 1st class. They need to be ordered one day in advance. 50% of the time the meals do not make it on the train and I have had the Bubbie's sandwich. Most of the meals that actually arrived were pretty bad; I have only had one ok one. I hope that Wraps2Go finds another spot in Union Station.

              The Acela has stopped stocking the kosher sandwiches. Alas.

                FIrst class still offers kosher meal options: chicken, beef or fish. Last month, I was surprised both that my meal actually arrived and that it was not bad for a frozen meal. The Freshko meals in Penn St. are very helpful.

            2. If you hold by the Crumbs hechsher, there's one in Union Station by the Amtrak.
