Best Potato Kugel in Midwood/Flatbush?
The best that Potato Kugel that I could find in Midwood/Flatbush, Brooklyn was at Meisner's on Avenue M - but the store seems to have closed. Any other recommendations for a really good potato kugel?
As a potato kugel maven, the best i've come across so far is Shicks take-out in Boro Park.. The oil they use alone will last you for all 8 nts. of Chanukah.
Well I think Flatbush Takeout on Coney Island Ave is better, although the potato kugel mavens are fiercely divided should there be an eggy fluffiness like a souffle? Should it be well peppered to give a little kick? Should it be denser and more cake like or is the addition of flour or matzo meal a dilution of the essence of its nature... And a maven selects a different kugel for keeping on the blech for Shabbos morning than for friday night....
MEISNER still has his original store on Avenue I between East 29th and Nostrand. They had the Avenue M store for the kitchen which they used for catering, but now have the former Aperian on Kings Highway and no longer needed the Avenue M kitcken.
I've found over the past 35 years that Flatbush Takeout on Coney between J and K has always had the best of everything. Meisner's potato kugel is almost as good.
I have also bought Flatbush takeout's Potato kugel for many years, as an alternative to Meisner's kugel . I do agree that it's very good. Actually, as far as I understand they make 3 kinds of potato kugel - the round one, which is all potato, a rectangular one that has some filler, and the overnight kugel. I get the round one.
I was just wondering if anyone makes one that is even better. The Schick's recommendation sounds like it may be too greasy for me, and I was hoping to stick to Flatbush stores.
Thanks everyone for your input, and hope it keeps coming.
