not that my experience with knish(es?) is boastworthy in breadth or depth, but the $1.25 knish at that bakery (Tara? Taura? Laura? i’ll get back to you on this) that is just shy of kiddie-corner to Wawel (5499 Sherbrooke o.) are gotterdammerung delicious. that which i tasted had presumably been sitting around all day (as of 1pm) but was immensely tender and yielding, and so my eyes narrow involuntarily thinking of that day of days when i get up early enough to try one fresh.
potato, mixed veg, mushroom or spinach. the second last being i think my favourite. also all manner of breads and pastries available for usual prices, including chocolate turnovers seemingly akin (even vegan?) to those of Cheskie’s (359 Bernard o. )fame.
espresso $1.50. reasonably delicious, slight nuttiness. croissants (95¢) also more than satisfactory – very flaky, very chewy – although the subtle sweetness i love so much was a little less subtle than usual. maybe not subtle enough.
or maybe just Not Subtle Enough enough?
