Pierogies - Yonkers?

I've only heard of good pierogies in Yonkers. I finally pinned down the friend of a friend about their whereabouts, and she said she only happens upon the place every now and then, but that she'd pay attention the next time, as to address and name. That doesn't help much. Does anyone know if such a place exists? I'd be so grateful for any leads!

  1. Could it be Yonkers Miasarnia, 39 Lockwood Avenue, or Polish Deli, 225 Nepperhan Ave.?

      I have no idea! Do you favor one over the other?

      1. re: Pat Hammond

        My vote is the Polish Deli for pierogies and lots of other very interesting items, however I get really good hot dogs at Miasarnia.

          Thanks very much. I hope to get over there later in the week.

            Just a heads up, very little English is spoken or understood there, also you can purchase the pierogies frozen or fresh.

            1. re: chowdom

              Very little Polish spoken here! I can say "cabbage" though, and that's what I'm hoping to find. Thanks very much for your help.

                Just got home, having bought an assorted 3 dozen pierogi, some Polish dill pickles, and the best darned head cheese I've had in years. It's not hard to find at all, but many of the streets are "under construction". The guy who waited on me spoke fine Englilsh, btw. Thanks all, for your help.

                1. re: Pat Hammond

                  Can we assume you are speaking of Polish Deli not Yonkers Miasarnia?

                  1. re: surman

                    That would be a correct assumption, Polish Deli. Sorry.

                    1. re: Pat Hammond

                      You should have went to Yonkers Miasarnia. They make the pierogis fresh right there! He also smokes his own kielbasa, only smokehouse in lower Westchester!

                  2. re: Pat Hammond

                    What kind of pierogi did you purchase Pat? Also, please post when you sample them. Lived in the E. Village for a long time and miss the plethora of Polish and Ukrainian places and especially miss the pierogi.

                      My favorite has always been the sauerkraut, which is what I got. Also potato, and something with mushrooms. (I had to borrow some freezer space next door for a couple dozen, so I'm not entirely sure.) They have every kind you can name, though. I had six of them for dinner, boiled, then browned, and served with sauteed onion and a little sour cream on the side. It's been years since I had pierogi and then they were always made by Polish grandmas at the church fair. So by comparison the ones from the Polish Deli seemed somewhat heavier, the dough thicker, but then it's entirely possible that I've romanticized my prior experience! I certainly enjoyed them though and would get them again. I do plan to try Miasarnia, too. The Polish Deli headcheese, if you like the stuff, is just amazing, but an acquired taste and lots of people are grossed out by the look of it, as well as the name! I bought the white, but they had black, and another kind I wasn't familiar with.

                      225 Nepperhan Ave, Yonkers, NY 10701

        2. I just ran across this post and have to check these two places out. I can't wait.
