S & D Polish Deli: Real Polish Pierogi

leave a comment »

t says: While we were in the strip district, we happened to walk into this Polish deli which had red and white flags everywhere, a couple of aisles of Polish ingredients (or, in some cases, just some garlic powder) and a deli.  I knew I wasn’t leaving this place without putting something in my mouth.  As I perused the deli’s offerings, I spotted that they also had pierogi made to order (apparently pierogi is the plural, and pierog is singular)!

I asked the guy for a single order or pierogi .  He asked what kind?  I didn’t know there were “kinds” … silly me.  I asked for his suggestion and he recommend cheddar-and-potato, saying it was “classic”.  I went for it.

Holy crap they were good.  It was like gnocchi met ravioli met cheddar cheese.  The sauteed onions in the sauce were so sweet.  It was a perfectly simple dish – no super-complicated combination of flavors that evolved in your mouth – just plain ol’ goodness.  You know – I really don’t have much to compare these to, as I’ve only had pierogi sold in a super-market in the frozen food section.  Ok, so these are WAY better than those, but that’s not saying much.

Also, I can now inform g’s dad of the location of this pierogi treasure chest.  He’s quite the fan.  S & D better be ready, because the next time he visits Pittsburgh, he might show up with an empty cooler and ask them to fill ‘er up.
