I went to Cafe Polonez in Roncesvalles Village last night looking to satisfy my craving for perogies. I was told that they were the veterans in that realm here in Toronto. For starters, I ordered the Soup of the Day - Barley Soup, and my BF ordered the Borscht. Both were very tasty and authentic. We then ordered the potato and cheese perogies (which came boiled), and the potato pancakes with beef. I must tell you that, although both orders were good, they were nothing special.
Perhaps we are spoiled from having gone to notably one of the best in the country - Alicia's in Winnipeg, probably the oldest family owned Ukrainian restaurant. The potato and cheddar cheese perogies were served with crispy bacon and onions. You had your choice of having them either boiled, pan fried, or deep fried. The holobchis (sp?)were little spring roll sized and perfect with every bite. The kolbasa (sp?) was also homemade - nice and lean. And not to forget about the could tell that BaBa did a check before anything came out of the kitchen to make sure it was all perfect.
Can anyone recommend another place that serves perogies here in Toronto? I'm dying to know before I get hit by another craving!!
