Latkes are potato pancakes usually made for the Jewish holiday of Chanukah, when oily foods are customary. However, these latkes produced by the Israeli pavilion at the Heritage Festival feel short. The texture and flavour reminded me more of the potato pancakes I order in a family restaurant, than the smooth, crispy ones I remember from home. Other patrons were commenting as well along similar lines. The portion size was good, although some sour cream would have been nice along with the apple sauce.
