Excellent Kosher restaurant in Virginia Beach in winter! and Virginia notes

Following the great reviews on Shamash, we ate at Little Israel in Virginia Beach yesterday. The food was fresh, delicious and worth the 50 minute trip from Williamsburg. Yehuda and Tzion took good care of us. Friendly, accommodating and just good Israeli food. Shnitzel was fresh, plump and not greasy, served in a warm, fluffy pita (not piece of cardboard like we get in NY--Yehuda says the pita comes from Israel). Jerusalem mix was delicious, tasty, moist. Choice of salads (excellent cole slaw!), non-greasy fries, large-size burger, good shish. Just good food. We made note of it for a future summer stay. There are some great Oceanfront Marriotts and other chain hotels nearby. Also, near the Museum of Army Transportation and the Mariners Museum (includes the Monitor exhibit--great museum!). Again, less than an hour from Williamsburg where we were based at the Marriott Villas. Used a large Presto griddle to make fresh pancakes, eggs and grilled cheese sandwiches each morning. Love my griddle! (I make my homemade dry ingredient mix for the pancakes at home and just buy eggs and milk at the hotel minimart). Bring the cheeses and bread from home, although, I saw that Little Israel did have some Kosher cheese and other products. I'm sure there is more in Norfolk (nice Chabad there), but we didn't need it this time. There are other great museums and sites here, plus lazer tag and skating which my kids always love to do. Great vacation! If you're tired of D.C. and are driving down from NY, this is a good place to visit--quite close to D.C. It isn't just about Busch Gardens (closed during the winter) and Colonial Williamsburg (we did like the Colonial thing--met Thomas Jefferson today, nice to talk to him).
