Is there a place that sells cheese piroshki in nyc?

I've tried Brighton Beach, but couldn't find piroshki with cheese filling, only khachapuri. I've read Pravda has spinach and cheese piroshki, but still would like to find a place that sells them with cheese only.

  1. I can't point to a specific store, but perhaps someone will have knowledge of a place in Greenpoint with cheese piroshki? In addition, I think Union Market (Cobble Hill/Carrol Gardens location), Fairway in Red Hook and the Key Food on Henry Street in Cobble Hill have them, but would suggest calling to confirm before heading out. Good luck!

    Fairway Market
    480 Van Brunt St, Brooklyn, NY 11231

    Union Market
    288 Court St, Brooklyn, NY 11231

    1. Are they significantly different from Polish pierogi? (I'm not an expert.) If not, you can usually get cheese pierogi at Eagle Provisions (5th Ave. at 18th St. in Brooklyn) and many other Polish places I'm sure.

      628 5th Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11215

      1. Unsure how different piroshki are from pierogi for your purposes, as well. Most supermarkets in Greenpoint--even C-Town (on Manhattan) and Key Foods (on McGuinness)--carry pierogis, including the cheese variety, though they are fairly professionally made. I don't know the best place to get the more amateurish kinds I like.

        Outside of Greenpoint, it's hard--some stores outside of Greepoint only carry the potato-and-cheese varieties, which I kind of hate.

        1. Maybe: First Ave Pierogi & Deli Co - 130 1st Avenue LES
