Canter's closed? Boo Hoo. Mustabeen those cranky waitresses :D

Yep, I'm in L.A. Thanks for the directions. It must be a good place. I googled it up & even found a tiny pic & a recipe for Happy Flappy Jack Pancakes - but no luck on the blintzes. Sorry. Here's a link with a pic & recipe for the kasha varnishkas. I eat them with lots of butter. You were close - my Hungarian grandma used to make them with borscht (sp?)

Oh my gosh! I have to ask my dad if this sounds familiar!
His mom came to the US from Poland just a couple of years after the Grandma in the story.....I bet he's had that :)
It sounds like such comfort food!

PM me if you'd like to meet at Flappy's some morning :)

Jkath, amazing coincidence...my grandma came to U.S. from Hungary (perhaps around that time). She met my grandpa here in the US who was from Poland & the rest is history. Smiled when I read the article, because my grandma (probably like everyone else's grandma), would say - I don't have it written down, just watch me.

If you'd like to give the dish a try, in the market (perhaps in the ethnic section) buy a box of kasha. The directions for kasha varnishkas (bow tie noodles/farfelle) is probably on the back of the box. She also made dishes like liver, meat, kasha or potato knishes, Hungarian goulash, flanken, kreplach, so many comfort food dishes. Wish I could duplicate. Hoping people will jump in & share.

Also, googled up Petrillo's. Saw all rave reviews. Thank you for sharing with us & the invite. So glad I found this site & the folks here.
