Miri, who stayed at the Holiday Inn Krakow hotel and ordered a kosher Shabbat dinner, says:
The hotel staff set the table with disposable dishes. For NIS 130 per portion, we received a full and respectable Shabbat meal that is enough for at least two. The meal included salmon fish, soup, a few slices of kogel noodles, vegetable pie, rice, boiled vegetables, fruit, a bottle of cola, a bottle of natural juice, whole raw vegetables, a cake and more.
