Food Finders: Locating bialys, potato knishes in Las Vegas

Bialys — those cousins of the bagel, flattish discs with caramelized onions in the center — are a unique treat, and fellow Food Finders readers are sharing where Ron Butin can find them.

Jan Visser said Weiss Deli Restaurant Bakery, 2744 N. Green Valley Parkway in Henderson, has them every Saturday and Sunday, with a limited number each day. “They are larger than the NYC ones and delicious,” he said. “Go early and take some home, although they don’t freeze well.”

Linda Morelli and Karen Kissam recommended The Bagel Cafe at 301 N. Buffalo Drive, and Kissam also suggested New York Bagel N Bakery at 840 S. Rancho Drive.

For the square potato knishes Butin also is seeking, Morelli, Kissam and Elis Morris also suggested the Bagel Cafe.

For Asa Richter, who’s looking for Morton Super Fine Popcorn Salt, Marlene Drozd reported finding it at Smith’s at 9750 S. Maryland Parkway in Henderson. And Cheryl Sheffield of Sheffield Spice & Tea Co., 9875 S. Eastern Ave., said she carries it as well.

More on Jewish-style bakeries: Barbara Metzger recommended Life’s a Bagel at 2223 N. Rampart Blvd., adding that it sells “the best challah and rye bread along with other Jewish-style baked goods.”
