Our Story

A knish is an Eastern European baked good consisting of a filling (generally potato) that is wrapped in dough. When brought over by immigrants in the early 1900’s, it became popular in major North American cities, often sold in delis and on the street in hot dog carts.

With the knish almost non-existent in the Triangle region of North Carolina, owners Michael and Jamie Eliahu created knish-a-licious in 2014. Aiming to introduce this traditional food to a wider audience, knish-a-licious offers a unique comfort food that bursts with flavors and fillings.

With a passion for food and years of experience in the kitchen, Michael Eliahu brings a new spin to old family recipes and wants to warm your heart (and belly).

We look forward to serving you!
