Comment: We were there in 2007. Basic, decent kosher pizza, coffee, etc. The owner was very warm and helpful. His office was equipped w/ sfarim for quiet times. It is not near Central Station, nor is it near the Portuguese synagogue, so the tourist centers were no help in finding it (or the neighborhood). Make sure you have clear travel instructions, exact address and map w/ you if you are not up for too much adventure in finding it. My notes are a little unclear but I believe we got off at van Boshuisenstraat stop of Metro 51, a bus that we reached by train, which we picked up at Waterlooplein, near the Portuguese synagogue. The trip took about 45 minutes each way in the middle of the day (from Waterlooplein). Also in the area were a small Kosher bakery, and not too far away a Judaica store, large supermarket and their small jewish community center.
London neighbourhoods Our family of four is traveling to London in July. We would like to look for an air bnb in a secular neighbourhood within an hour's walk to an Orthodox synagogue. Can you suggest some neighbourhoods for us to try?
how to ship belongings What does Customs allow or what items do they tax heavily. I have electronics, laptop, tablet, printers, I need as a writer, and also want some household items for an apt. with me. Want to give out blankets, soup, and bread to poor and shut-in Holocaust survivors too. Have Israeli friends, but don't want to bother them before I visit them. No idea who to contact for apt. search and for Customs requirements.
