Kasha Knishes in Brooklyn
I checked 13th Ave. this AM for Kasha Knishes.
There are at least 5 places you can buy them here.
ShemTov 55 & 13. - they didn't have any ready to eat when I got there @11AM
Amnons Pizza 4813- 13th - The dough was too soft - the filling had a good strong
peppery Kasha taste but too oily(?)/soft for me. Log style.
Tova Pizza 4001-13 - The knishes look wonderful - the dough was tasty , the filling
had visible sauteed onions - but there was absolutely no kasha taste.
I plan to go back here and tell them what I thought because they got everything
else right. Log style.
2 stored down (towards 47st) from Amnons is a food store which had very interesting
looking, small knishes - but no kasha when I got there. Round style.
There is another bakery on the South side of 13th around 40th on a corner which
also has very interesting looking pastry/filling knishey things which they
call something else - but no Kasha.
Along with the flakey pastry dough that made Hirsh's so great, was the filling--almost pure kasha and onions, so that when you ate them the kasha grains just crumbled out. Most of the kasha knishes I find now are kasha held together with potato, or kasha so mushed out that it resembles potato!
