Pierogies in Delray, Boynton area.

I have had a craving for potato pierogies lately. Am looking for ones that are home made as opposed to the frozen kind available in Publix. Jack's Pizza in Delray has them sometimes, but not recently. Anyone know where I can fix my craving?

  1. I don't have a boutique recommendation to make, but have you tried the ones at Costco? I forget who makes them, but They are $10 for a pack of 3 trays, each with a dozen. I'm not sure where other stores display them, but in aventura they are in the "Jewish food" (?) section, with blitzes, Knishes, herring, lox, etc (near the meat dept).

    They are refrigerated, not frozen. My Ukranian uncle approves.

    1. There is a small church just south of Hypoluxo on the west side of Military Trail called St. Herman of Alaska. They have truly great pierogies. It's a really small church so it's easy to miss.

      There is a food sale every Tuesday from 2-6PM. Also they have food festivals about once or twice a month. It's not really much of a festival. Really just a few people eating in a small church cafeteria. However, they have one this Saturday and Sunday from Noon - 2PM and also one on January 26 and 27th.

      If you go you can sign up to be on there mailing list and they'll mail you a flyer every month or so letting you know what weekends they do it.

      Last time I was in Cleveland my wife and I went to Sokolowskis which is well know for their pierogies. I would say the ones this little church puts are just as good. You can get them frozen to take home though I'd highly recommend getting the ones made fresh there,

      1. Two suggestions:

        Euro Deli (1879 W Hillsboro Blvd, Deerfield Beach, FL 33442 954-425-0200). They have a variety of pierogies and while they’re not homemade they’re very good. This is the place for all things Polish in the area.

        Emil’s European Sausage Kitchen (124 North Federal Highway, Deerfield Beach Florida 33441 954-422-5565). Walter makes these pierogies himself but they’re usually frozen. This is a great place for fresh-made German style sausages, cold cuts, and other delicacies. If you bake or cook using lard, Walter renders his own and it’s so much better that what you find in tubs and cans.

        1. If you ever get down to Pompano I can't recommend Pyza enough!

          1. Go online to Piast Garfield. This is one of the finest Polish deli's in the country. Fantastic pierogi and many kielbasa varieties. Excellent user friendly site. Food arives frozen in three days. Although I like Emiles, Piast prices are about half of Emils even with shipping.
