Custom of Some Gedolim

The Steipler zt"l used to recite the zohar and other tefillos during 
the break. In his later years he recited portions of tehillim.[1] He 
did not make kiddush before tekios.[2] Harav Moshe Feinstein zt"l did 
not eat before tekios.[3] Harav Elyashiv zt"l  [4] and Harav Yisroel 
Belsky Shlita do not eat or drink before tekios.
