Ha! Sounds tasty--I know what I'm having for lunch tomorrow. A knish I can find. Not sure where the hoave vendors hang out.

chained_bear commented on the word hoaves
Archaic (or just bizarre) plural of oaf, if I had to guess. Usage:
"'Killick has been polishing the silver,' observed Stephen.
"'And only half done and my mates always needing an eye on them, heavy handed hoaves liable to scratch it something cruel.'"
--Patrick O'Brian, The Thirteen Gun Salute, 277
