Take home perogies in MSP?
I am looking for a recommendation for a good deli that makes their own or sells good perogies. My husband and I used to live in Cleveland, near a local Polish deli that made their own, but we haven't had any since moving. The grocery store ones don't even come close and are very dissapointing.
I have had them at the Groveland Tap in St. Paul. I believe they make them there from scratch.
1834 Saint Clair Ave, Saint Paul, MN 55105
St. Mary's Orthodox Cathedral on 5th st. N.E. is know for having pretty good pierogies. You have to boil them up at home, but they're good. I think a couple of other Churches sell them too but I don't recall any names. Drive around N.E. Minneapolis, all of the churches are withing a 10 block drive.
I don't think any of them sell pierogies during summertime, so you have to wait until September.
I'd check out Kramarczuk's in NE Minneapolis ( 215 East Hennepin Avenue
Minneapolis, MN 55414). They sell varenyky, which is the same dish from as far as I can tell. I think they sell them with the classic cheese and potato or sauerkraut, but they also have ones filled with meat too! They have them to go. Definitely worth a try.
I second this recommendation. My family eats perogies for holiday meals and traditionally these were sauerkraut or prune perogies, both of which are not easily found (but admittedly easily made). Because I just don't have the time to be making them at the holidays I happily head to Kramarczuk's, wait in line for 25 minutes, and get the next best thing.
I love their sauerkraut and while they don't have prune, their potato and cheese perogies are quite good and work well enough for our family. They're not cheap but certainly worth every penny.
