Your post above reminds me of many years ago when Paul Bocuse was visiting New York and I took him to a well-known knish joint on the Lower East side. I ordered two potato knishes, one spread generously with deli mustard, the other with nothing more than an additional bit of salt. Bocuse took a big bite of one of those, held it at arms length, studied it for a moment and said "It's marvelous. But tell me, is it to eat or to throw at an enemy?"
The knish (aka the Jewish atom bomb) that does not give you heartburn is a poor knish indeed.
Methinks you went to Sam's Pizza on the Corner of Essex, that had the best knish!
