excellent knish, especially veg/mushrrom, noodle kugel way too sweet; red cabbage knish not satisfying main review is correct; pretty hard core original hole in wall eatery for one thing, a knish, one is very filling. great with mustard decor is not an issue, very friendly service three bare tables to sit down

So much for the original recipe

On their wall you can read the original recipe for a kasha knish. They get it right: no potato filling. On their plates it's another matter. It's a potato-kasha knish. A pure kasha knish can no longer, alas, be found here. So what makes this the "Original Yonah Schimmels"? The floors?

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
