KC - Pierogies?

Anyone know if/where you can buy locally made pierogies?

  1. Kansas City's eastern euro food scene is terrible! I wish a farmer's market stand would start up. I love piergoies.

      I second that. Isn't there only one Russian place named Pegas or something in OP? I know they have them frozen @Whole Foods.

        nothing in the strawberry hill neighborhood? there does seem to be a russian market somewhere but i assumed the polish neighbohood would have something. maybe i'll drive thru there and see what i can find.

          Wear your vest. Let us know. Hey- maybe you should stop @that dive bar I was seeing in all the papers a couple years ago. I can't remember the name. Several old-school flies were in the pictures getting their drink on.

            wear my vest and stop ina dive bar - sounds like an exciting albeit dangerous adventure for pierogies. all in the name of good food, i guess. growing up in pittsburgh, pa there was never a shortage of good, local pierogies so i figured with a polish neighborhood, maybe someone there sells them. keep you posted.

              Krizman's House of Sausage in KCK carries Pieroguys' Pierogies. Pieroguys are in Lawrence.

                The Community Mercantile in Lawrence carries them, too.

                There is an eastern European restaurant/shop on 80th just west of Metcalf. I want to say it's called "Taste of Russia" but I could have that wrong. I found a Bulgarian spread called avjar there, so pierogies might be worth a call or a visit if it's nearby for you.

    2. You might want to check out Sophie's -- it's a deli near 7th and Central with a big Slavic eagle over the door. I haven't been, but I've always been intrigued. The description on the virtual tourist website says that they have pierogies on Tuesday.


      I found this as well --
