TORONTO’S TOP TAKEOUT: 28 problems, but a perogy ain’t one!

Dude, this is body by pierogis, bro! Whether we’re talking Polish-style, Hungarian or even pierogi poutine, you KNOW it’s heading straight down my piehole. So when I heard that Heavenly Perogy, this funky Ukranian joint on Bathurst, was offering 2-for-1 pierogis on Uber Eats, I was all over that like a babushka at a folk dance! And when I saw they had 2-for-1 dessert pierogis, I had to get some of those too, which means four orders of pierogis, or 28 pierogis in total. Just another light snack in Flavourtown?

Now, this place has two kinds of pierogis, not including the dessert ones. Potato + cheddar has always been my go-to, but I thought I’d give their sauerkraut and mushroom flavour a try as well. Well, lemme tell ya, you definitely get the bitterness of the kraut — but I didn’t really taste the mushrooms so much. So I think I’ll just stick with the classic potato and cheese:

Dude, these potato cheddar pierogis were definitely on point. Nice cheesy chew, boiled but not fried, with some sauteed onions and bacon bits — nothing wrong with that at all. You do hafta pay extra for toppings and sides like sour cream, but from what I can tell, I only got charged once for putting them on both orders, so it’s all good in the Flavourhood!

Now, here’s where they funk it up a notch. At first, I thought these blueberry dessert perogis would be kinda weird, but it’s actually sorta like eating blueberry pie, just with a softer, chewier crust. I will say that this is a dish best served warm, though. Since I literally saved these for dessert, the second batch wasn’t quite as hot or quite as good. Also, while these ones come with sour cream included, I found that I didn’t need to put as much on as I do with regular, mealtime pierogis. So that’s why the only thing left standing at the end of this meal was one unopened container of crème sûre.
