I have never been able to find any knishes CITYWIDE that come close to these in appearance/taste. Many moons ago when my grandparents took me to Coney Island my grandpa would get his knish at Jerry's on the boardwalk while my grandma would hold out for a Shatzkins potato knish--sometimes kasha--on Surf Ave. I used to be fascinated watching the women making the knishes in the open windows. Anybody know where a come-close facsimile exists? Supermarket frozen ok too as Shatzkins did this in later years. Thanks
