Knishes in Philly & burbs
Anyone know of a place to get good knishes in Philly or the Main Line? Supermarket, deli, anywhere?
the best place for knishes --worth the trip --is Lipkins bakery on Castor ave --inside, mitch lipkin makes knishes of all flavors--mini ones and full size. potato, veggie , mushroom, kasha, fake liver, cheese, pizza.. etc. read the old newspaper clippings on teh wall and you'll see he's been at it for 25+ years... i never get less than 2 dozen. they freeze excellent and you won't be disappointed. get a chocolate babka while you're there :).
Grew up in Brooklyn and am a big fan of kasha knishes.
Famous 4th on 19th Street has terrible things they call kasha knishes. I was served a big piece of overcooked (Yes, charred on the bottom) puff pastry with some dried out kasha inside. Thank goodness I had a decent bowl of matzoh ball soup to ease the pain.
Herschel's at RTM has decent kasha knishes. However, they likely don't stack up to Lipkin's.
Hooray!!I'm getting some biz for Lipkins so they'll stay afloat for a few more years!!! I looked up if they are kosher --and I think "yes" It says it on teh site in one place... and I know there are always boxes of cakes, for local onegs waiting to be delivered.... website: http://lipkinsbakery.com/now i have to make a pilgrimedge myself!
