I was leaving Ikea when I saw the sign "Perogies". I couldn't drive by without checking it out. Since I am a vegan I was happy to find out that perogies can be egg and dairy free. I bought different flavors to try at home. I also purchased the AMAZING looking Cabbage Rolls that looked just like my baba used to make. I picked up a few crepes and baked buns. Once I got home, my husband and the children were so happy to hear whats for dinner. EVERYTHING was TASTY! I loved it so as my family. From now and on, this will be our store to shop :D

Went in with my roommate to introduce her to cabbage rolls. Ordered two, they were really expensive, compared to the price on the prairies - and really they are cabbage and rice and fairly easy to make. They were TERRIBLE. Runny, still half frozen (microwaved them - yuck), flavour and sauce was absolutely sub par.
Also bought some perogies to take home, also really expensive and really really disappointing when we got home and made them.

Saving grace, however, is the Russian place next door. Bought a different kind of frozen perogie there - and they were DELICIOUS and way cheaper. Also, the meat next door is phenomenal.

they also have potato and cheese perogies for vegetarian option.

What a wonderful place - all the food looks homemade with care. Vegetarian options are the mushroom perogies and sauerkraut perogies, mushroom cabbage rolls and beet salad. The mushroom perogies were my favourite and I dream about having them again soon. You can buy ready-to-eat perogies and frozen. The service was very friendly and it is obviously a family-run small business, which feels good to support.

Last autumn, my daughter and I discovered that we could walk to Lakomka and Beryozka, and this became a favourite, relaxing weekend activity for us. One Sunday as the weather began to turn colder, the friendly lady in Lakomka told us that her mother and father were planning to open up a Perohy take out next door. I was very happy to hear about the Ukrainian community making its presence more known in our town. Throughout the long, harsh winter we were unable to make the walk, and when the sidewalks were finally cleared and we had a milder day, we returned to see that the windows were still papered up. We were assured that Perohy was coming soon, and wondered what it looked like inside.

At last came spring, and we made our weekend walks to Perohy. It was a fun treat for my daughter to go ‘out’ to Perohy for supper, as we have never gone out to restaurants often. As we spoke with the family there and got to know them a bit, I began to think at home about the acquaintance and the nature of their business. In particular I was impressed with the Mama of this establishment, with thoughts to the husband/father and their daughters as well. I realised that this is not at all like any restaurant. I promised the family that I would post my comments on their Perohy take out.

What is special about Perohy is that its foundation is love. It is a business that feeds their family; but it is created out of love and with a mandate to share that love. This mother works to feed the community as she works at home for her family. She puts the love of her hands into the perohy or pirojki or holubtsi that you buy, as she has done for many years at home and has passed this on to her family. Go to the restaurant at College Square and see if you find love in a greasy pizza or frozen veggie burger. When I haven’t our own perohy at hand, or as a treat for my daughter, a bit of a tradition for a weekend lunch, I am comfortable that she is eating good quality food with the love of honest people that I would create for her at home. I am happy to support their family’s business.

As well, it must be noted that this mother is worthy of honour as a woman who has balanced life for her large family and shares with the community. In health research women’s paid and unpaid work are now given serious attention as societal determinants of health. The father and husband is a gentleman who has put his heart and determination into his family, and the daughters are kind.

We enjoy and fully appreciate our visits to Perohy and the efforts that the family puts into this remarkable, pleasant place.

Found out the hard way that they close at 5 on Mondays, and 8 every other weeknight :(

I was so happy to find this place today when I visited the Russian store Lakoma. It is right next door.I tried the cabbage rolls, cabbage salad, blines, salad oliver and of course perogies and everything was delicious! I thought the cabbage rolls and perogies tasted familiar and I read below that it is the same woman from the Ukranian Orthodox Church who did the cooking! This made sense as I went every year to the bazaar just for her food. The food is even better then the ones I tried in Europe. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. I am thrilled that I no longer have to try so hard to make it myself (which never turns out) and can buy it there.
My daughter loves it too and it makes a nice healthy alternative to all those hamburger fast food places.

I ordered a variety of their perogies last night and brought them home to have for dinner with the family. Everyone was impressed with the size and quality of them. My fav. was the potato and cheddar cheese, but my boyfriend swears by the pork ones.

We will definitely be back...soon!

WOW! those are A+ perogies!
Mine never look like that. They're sealed so pretty!!
It's odd that they wouldn't have the original cottage cheese and potato ones. That's the only one's I've made.
I'm def going to have to try these beautiful works of art now. Thanks for the pic!

I can asure you all that these pierogis are not only made of food, but love as well.

Not only can you taste the love, but you can see the Rudenesque Polish ladies fingers in the sealing dimples.

I bet they would be open to the idea of making dry cottage cheese/potato ones. No harm in asking. They have an email address.

After seeing the comments here last week, my husband and I had to try out the eats. I agree that the perogies are great but I was not overwhelmed by the cabbage rolls. I guess it is the usual problem that I grew up with a mom who made them and everything gets compared to that. She made them quite small and they were stuffed with rice, onions and bacon....yum! She put lots of tomato sauce on it and cooked it until it was fairly thick...I actually prefer it that way.

This is the first time I have found cabbage rolls without pork in them, which I prefer...so I definitely give them credit for that, and they are the best store/takeout ones I have had ....now if i could just get mom to sell hers.

I've had both the rice & mushroom and rice & meat (contains pork), and they were both delicious. The sauce is the most authentic I've found. Most cabbage rolls from grocery stores have a tomato sauce that is too thick, and sweet.

Just enjoyed a dozen Potato Bacon and a dozen Potato Cheese for lunch with the family today. The price is steep ($11.99/dozen frozen) but they are large and very nice. If you think of it as a takeout restaurant meal rather than a grocery item, the price easier to swallow. These perogies, with their mild potatoey filling, delicate but chewy wrapper, and tasty fried-with-onions exterior, are radically different from what you find at your grocery store.

Just finished my supper of these potato and cheese perogies, with a ton of fried onions, double smoked bacon bits (made from Brhant(?) Double smoked bacon from the European deli on Merivale), and modified HP sauce.

I know, sour cream should to be on this plate. But I like my modifired HP sauce with them instead. Something I learned from the cafateria at Bakehead University in Blunder Bay ( or is that Lakehead University in Thunder bay).

Were's my couch ?

Forget the couch, I'm off to blow my blues harps (harmonicas) at the Emdale Tavern.

Hope that the walk there gets me thirsty for some Beau's Lug Tread Lagered Ale.

Tried all the varieties on sale the day we went in....pork, potato, sauerkraut. Pork is so far my favorite but all were very good.

Handformed, fresh dough, and a variety of fillings (potato cheese, potato mushroom, meat, potato liver, potato cabbage), you can get them fresh or frozen (12 per package). They are slightly more expensive than what you'd find at the grocery store, but the quality more than makes up for the difference in price. Highly recommended. These are the same that were sold at the Ukrainian Orthodox church on Byron.

Agree on the borscht...very yummy. Never seen beans before, but yummy none the less.

2008 Jan 10
You can get frozen or hot borscht, in various sizes. This is the first borscht I've had that's contained beans (!), but it was delicious nonetheless!

I've had the cabbage, jam, and cherry filled pirojki (pronounced pee-ro-shkee). All make for a delicious snack, and for $1.99, it's a good cheap eat!

I had a stuffed pepper and it was FILLING. Lots of rice and meat in these, and lots of sauce in there. My SO was not a fan, as she doesn't enjoy ground meats or green peppers very much. All the more for me to enjoy!
