Take out pierogi w/ pot cheese in Brooklyn or SI

It's Grandma's birthday next week and I want to get this for her. I've been to Brighton and haven't found pierogi w/ pot cheese. Any suggestions where I can find this? Somewhere in Williamsburg? Also if you know any place in SI (the Polish Deli on Hylan does not have it either) that makes it that would be helpful since she hates leavind SI.

  1. There has to be someplace in Greenpoint or in the East Village. Hounds? Who would think that a person named MrsT would have a difficult time finding pierogies. Go figure.

    1. re: Cheese Boy

      Ha! I forgot about that frozen brand, unfortunately Grandma hates the frozen stuff.

    2. There might be some places on 5th Avenue between 17th Street and 23rd Street in Brooklyn. Can someone confirm or deny, por favor?

      1. Hmmmm....
        I haven't yet explored SI for Pierogi availability.
        I used to head to Kiev in the City when I had a craving. They had the best Eastern European home cooked food, but it has closed. In Brooklyn, what about the Polonica restaurant on 3rd Ave in the 70's in Bay Ridge?
        Theresa's on 2nd Ave probably makes them with pot cheese.
        If you find them on SI, I'd love to know what you thought.

        1. There is a Polish store off Victory Blvd near the ferry.Maybe they have what you're looking for

          1. If you are stuck try this place in Queens:
            Just Like Mother's Restaurant
            11060 Queens Boulevard, Forest Hills, NY 11375
            (718) 544-3294 It's been a while but I think I remember pierogi with farmers cheese or pot cheese.

            Also going the other way from SI to nearby NJ I remember purchasing pierogi in Elizabeth on the way back to the Goethals Bridge at a meat market or deli on the main drag. There seemed to be a lot of places selling pierogis in the general area.
