Best Hamatashen

I'm trying to figure out which bakery makes the best hamantashen in Brooklyn - obviously subjective, but comparisons / opinions / nominations might also be worthwhile.

FWiW, I sampled a many caramel donuts (sufganiyot) around Hannukah time and Porges' (in Brooklyn at Coney & K) was by far my favorite - dough just doughy enough, caramel not too treacly - but when I tried their hamantashen the dough was too soft (though that may just be because it was recently out of the overn).

My personal taste in fillings runs to poppy and apricot, but I suppose that's also subjective.
