We add products daily to our KA Kosher Product Directory and liaise with every kosher establishment in Sydney and beyond –

Krinsky’s Kosher Supermarket & Liquor Shop
Have you visited the new Krinsky’s yet? Sydney now boasts a fabulous enlarged and renovated retail hub at 175 Bondi Road, Bondi - satisfying all your kosher needs across a plethora of ranges. Store Manager, Shmuly Gopin, explains, “As importers, we are able to source more products and deal directly with suppliers overseas, this in turn passes on huge savings to kosher consumers. Krinsky’s is now more than twice the size and we have had such positive feedback from customers thus far. Now that we have the luxury of space, we have an incredible range within our frozen section … with over 50 varieties of poultry, meat and smallgoods from Solomon Kosher Butcher … and that’s just for starters! Here at Krinsky’s, we listen to the requests of kosher consumers and as a result have been investing time and energy into expanding our “Free From” range of products (think wheat-free; dairy-free; soy-free etc.). We also have an expanded range of paper and plastic goods and now offer kosher consumers freshly baked goods from Tobias; Grandma Moses and Glicks.” It really is a modern, spacious shopping experience at Krinsky’s, all kosher consumers are welcome to stop by and enjoy the wide variety of products that are often uniquely sourced.
Philby’s Fine Foods
It’s no secret that it is the Jewish way to enjoy delicious, tasty kosher food each and every day (almost … we do have meaningful fast days thrown into the mix!) Well, here is a brand new addition to your table: Philby’s Fine Foods is now 100% kosher, certified by the KA. This means that you now have three new gourmet dressings that will turn your meal into an extraordinary restaurant quality delight! Creator Phil Strasser adds, “Here at Philby’s, we are passionate about our products and offer three varieties: Morrocan Angel Salad Dressing – Original; Morrocan Angel Salad Dressing – Spicy and Poppy Seed Salad Dressing. The secret to our success is our intense flavour … we believe we have got the balance just right!”
These Philby dressings (250ml) are all Australian-made (each bottle is produced carefully at Our Big Kitchen, Flood Street, Bondi). Philby’s kosher salad dressings are gluten-free, Certified Mehadrin, Pareve and available at Grandma Moses; Krinsky’s; Parisi’s Food Hall (21 Dover Road, Rose Bay) and at Norton St Grocer (Westfield, Bondi Junction). Please note that all kosher bottles of Philby’s dressing have a distinctive white Kashrut label at the back of the bottle. If any Philby’s dressings are found at other locations without a Kashrut label, they are from a previous batch that has not been supervised and therefore are not acceptable.
