Brooklyn (Midwood) Bakery advice
Looking for advice as to bakeries in Brooklyn, Ave J and Ave M in particular. What I am interested is well done crunchy crust water challas. The 5 Towns never had good water challas, small and pale ones. I remember when I visited relatives in Boro Park having amazing ones; however I am restricting myself to Midwood ones. I am also looking for amazing Kokosh, dripping with chocolate, you know with the layer of hard chocolate on the bottom.
Ostrovitzky onJ and 12th has great Kokosh, not sure about crunchy water challah tough, although their regular Challa is best in Brooklyn.
My wife di pick up a Kokosh at Chapanosh a few weeks ago that was s good as any I had ever had
Isaac's bakery makes really good Kokosh cake. For good water challahs, I've found that the best ones were found in Boro Park, at Yossi's/Eagle's bakeries. Ostrovitsky's on Avenue J and East 12th has good egg challah, but I can't vouch for their water challah.
