POSEIDON BAKERY. 9TH AVENUE, HELLS KITCHEN. 1923.
KOURAMBIEDES. LIGHT, DELICATE BUTTER COOKIES. MY MOM'S WERE HEAVEN. LITERALLY MELTED ON THE PALATE.
Remember kiddies...P for PHYLLO (FEE-low, not FIE like PIE-low), P for POSEIDON! Poseidon opened in 1923 where the Port Authority Bus Terminal is now. They relocated probably in the very late 1940s, as the PABT opened like 1950. The Matriarch of Poseidon is a lovely lady of Italian descent named Lily. Who, despite having been interviewed by the likes of a well known Martha, took time to knock my socks off with one of my best video interviews FRIGGING EVERRR!
During which time, this lil Malaka learned the right way to say POSEIDON. An Italian teaches a Greek...GREEK! OPA!!! It's poe-see-DONE, not poe-SIE LIKE DIE-dun.
And beside some serious Greek classics, there's Austrians in the family tree. Hence POPPY AND PRUNE STRUDELS!!!!
