  1. Yes, lots! 2 years ago, I couldn't find anywhere with a teudah. Last time we were there (~8 months ago), we brought food with us from town, but it turned out that almost every airport restaurant had one. Unless something has majorly changed since then, there should be plenty for you to choose from.

      What about the private airport lounge that you need a pass to get in?

        I couldn't tell you. I'm not special enough to have a pass :)

          If you get a chase ink card you get two free entries as well as no foreign exchange fes

    2. Yes the private airport lounges, Traklin Dan, in concourse B and C have a Teudah from the Rabbi of the Airport. The El AL lounge in Concourse D has one from the El AL rabbi.

      The are plenty of restaurants and cafes with a Teudah both pre and post security. For a more quiet atmosphere if you have the time, you could go downstairs to the arrival hall on floor G where there are also some Kosher cafes

          I don't remember what they have, but I think there is still a McDonalds. Also a restaurant with Israeli type food like shawarma. Dairy restaurant also.
          Never had a problem with a teudah, and I think most restaurants have, but I beleive its only Rabbanut, which works for me.

            Is the McDonalds still there? I thought it was replaced with a Burger Barn or something like that.

            Personally, my favorite restaurant cafe in the airport is Aroma. Not really that fancy or special, but reliable. Remains one of my favorite omelette sandwiches.
