Lithuanian Cepelinai

Does anyone know where these can be purchased in the west end of Toronto? They're really delicious but definitely too difficult to make.

Thanks in advance for and suggestions!

    1. I think you can find them at the Lithuanian House on Sundays

        Thank you air621. It's been years since I've been there. Have you ever been to the bar? I'm afraid it might be rowdy?

          I have actually never been but my brother in law goes frequently on Sundays and he doesn't drink

            Thanks air621! It's definitely on my to do list now.

            You don't have to sit in the bar. They open a banquet hall next to the bar on Sundays. Definitely not rowdy in there.

            I find that the ceps at the Lithuanian church on Stavebank in Missisauga are FAR tastier. They serve them on Sundays as well.

              Thanks Davedigger! I'll have to check those out as well. I haven't had ceps since the Parish Hall was on College St. ! I think it's time to indulge!

                Now THAT is a long time! What is wrong with you??? LOL!!

                Actually, maybe the new parish at Bloor & Kipling serves them too.

        2. Here's a compromise: At the Starsky's supermarket (Dundas, just west of 427) they have frozen local Polish-style "Kartacze" in the frozen peirogi section. These are a N.E. Poland version of cepelinai (spherical rather than oblong). Add spirguciai (sauteed bacon & onions) and sour cream, and who's complaining? We keep some in the freezer for "cepelinai" cravings.
          Also, if you're at Starsky's, check out the bread that's imported directly from Lithuania. The "Palangos" rye is excellent. It's dense and flavourful, and reminds me of the old Rooneem's rye bread (Queen St W, long since gone) which was exquisite.
