Ah yes, the Polish Hot Loaf. This illusive Greenpoint special can only be gotten from roughly 10pm-2am, and requires patience and adherence to the rules. You must wait until the roller door is half open and then knock three times, peek your little head under it, and ask for a loaf. A man who only speaks Polish will then open the side door and billows of steam will flow out. At this point you are to present two dollars to him and say, 'œmushkie'. He will then return with a whole loaf of bread directly from the oven. You then walk down to the nearst bodega, buy a stick of butter, and eat your famed Polish hot loaf. It is advised that you do this all while intoxicated. This is the best deal in town. Mushkie.*
