I have a question about the definition of a kosher restaurant in Israel. I eat only kosher here in the U.S., and out of the house I eat vegetarian/dairy, unless I'm going to a kosher deli etc. Now that there's treif being served in restaurants in Israel I just want to make sure I understand the kosher situation.
A place that serves meat, like beef or chicken, even on a menu with treif -- is that meat actually kosher, even if the restaurant might serve shrimp? So I would feel comfortable having chicken even if my DH (who isn't kosher out of our house) would like shrimp or something? Does a restaurant only get a kosher certificate if it's closed on Shabbat?
I guess I'm asking if we are going out to a place in the Namal in Tel Aviv -- are all those restaurants serving kosher meat on their menus, even if they themselves are open on Shabbat and aren't considered "kosher"?
does this make sense? thank you!
