Oasis Cafe and Health Bar - 2 First Canadian Place

Okay, let's get one thing straight.

Despite popular conviction to the contrary, the word kosher doesn't necessarily mean "superior quality."
And it doesn't mean "blessed by a rabbi," either.

Despite the airline check-in lady who once told me my kosher meal hadn't made it on board because it was still "being blessed back in Toronto." I picture a conveyor belt of individually tinfoiled salisbury steaks, with a bearded sage waving his hand over them as they pass by, mumbling in Hebrew and pronouncing the dinner trays holy.

No, all the word really means is that food is prepared according to ancient Jewish dietary laws.

These laws include prohibitions against mixing dairy and meat products (and the utensils used for cooking these products), along with the well-known restrictions against certain types of animals (like pork and shellfish).
