The Shalom restaurant @Astoria offers certified Kosher warm meals at most times. It is recommended that reservations be made in advance, by calling the Astoria Hotel and ordering Chabad Kosher meals. Alternativiely, frozen meals to be warmed up are usually available, as are cold meals such as tuna salad sandwiches and lunch bags for tourists.

Kosher food can be bought at the local groceries as long a certified Kosher symbol is visible.
As always, fruits and vegetables are Kosher.

A certified Kosher butcher is available in Salonika, and kosher food can be obtained with some effort.
