Its Chanukah. So its time to eat all the sufganiot you can. Instead of wasting your money on places that have low class sufganiot, I did that for you.

Famous Pita on Coney Island Avenue: they go for 1.50 a piece. They are stingy on the jelly, pretty small pocket. Service seems good, although I went when nobody was around. The taste was a 5 (out of 10), and over all I rate it with a 4.

Pita Sababa(h) on kings highway and east 4th: 1.25 a piece. They have tons of filling, a big pocket full of it, best jelly, are hot, steamy,and pretty big. Service was quick. Taste was a 10. Over all a 10. If you are going to only one place, you go here.

J2 on M and east 15th: It went for 1.25. the jelly was smeared on (something I dont know what, maybe a bagel), not injectd, absolutely no pocket. It opened like a bagle. they had to heat it up before giving me it. taste was a 4 and over all, the rate is a 2.

Schreibers on M and east 31st: Pretty small, only a dollar. The jelly was good, not a big pocket. Service was good. Taste was a 6. over all the rate is a 7.

When I was at Schreibers, there was this one guy who was ordering. He was talking on his phone, trying to get down the order. Every few seconds, he would be changing the order around. Dude, how a bout getting your order together before you go in. Lucky for me, the guy behind the counter knew how to run things wel,l and got it all together. Right before this guy is about to leave he says, "Wait, none of those had powder". He was literally about to make the guy repack everything, after how hard he worked. In the end he didn't, and just left, allowing yours truly, to order.

Maybe Ill check out Boro Park too.

Glatt Mart has 4/$3.

Not sure of the price, but Weiss's (?) on M and E13th were pretty darn good the prev 3 years... Didn't buy any doughnuts this year yet though it seems like I'd be going to Schreibers.

Glatt Mart probably sells them from a company they bought it from, not "home made". Though pomegranate selld their own.

I tried Weiss's but they were all out when I came. Same with Kaffs on J and nostrand.

Mikeinmidwood said...

Do any of you know where Pressers is?

Ookamikun said...

Isn't that on M, somewhere between 16 and 19?

im with sally hazel. weiss's bakery on m and e 13th have a mean caramel filled donut. they have a chocolate coated with custard filling thats amazing. much better than dunkin donuts. i have to say the caramel filled donuts were the best.

Lion of Zion said...


presser's is no good.

the donuts from a lot of the bakeries suck because of the cheap jelly they use. i picked up a donought in williamsburgh on the way home from work on sunday. the dough was pretty good but the jelly was disgusting.

Mikeinmidwood said...

Okay, Okay. Lets make this clear. There is a big difference between a Donut, or even a jelly donut, and sufganiot.

Thanks for the encouragement

Dunkin Doughnuts does not count in your chanukah with sufganiot filling requirments. Did you try the jeely ones.

Lion O Zion

Then you wont be dissapointed with Pita Sababa, I promise.

No one mentions how good a home made lakte can be. Yes, I know you were doing a review, but let's get cooking! BTW, since the custom is to eat foods made with oil, can you name any good Jewish food that's NOT dripping with oil?

Mikeinmidwood said...


I will have to taste for myself.

Lakewood Falling Down

I dont see whats so great about latkes.

Mikeinmidwood said...

I take back what I said about latkes.

Sally Hazel said...

Just went to Schreibers ( thanks to your review). Liked their jelly donuts, didn't like the custard ones (pareve cream filling is no custard).

Mikeinmidwood said...

Sally Hazel

They should pay mr for advertising. glad you agree.
