Pierogi Truck - two thumbs up with a little wart

Just thought I'd throw my 2 cents in on my own beloved cuisine.

I've been wanting to try the pierogi truck for awhile now. I grew up on polish food and it's taken me awhile to get out to the pierogi truck 'cause we make polish food at home often. The pierogi were really good! The food is legit and I'd recommend checking this place out. I liked the potato and cheese pierogi the best. I couldn't believe they charged $9 for a single Gołąbki (stuff cabbage, but I admit it was a good size)! If I were super picky, I would say the Gołąbki was too salty and the bigos was too salty and had too much grease (i.e. bacon/meat/sausage drippings). The fat drippings cut through the sourness of the sauerkraut which is fine, however, it is a balance. Leave a bit of the sour note for us fans. That being said, this is all picky and just a matter of preference. I thought the food was definitely of high quality. The only real problem: Price. If I'm hungry I would want a Gołąbki, 6 pierogis and bigos on a combo plate for around $15 (not 9 + 8 + 13 =$30). I understand good food takes time and quality ingredients cost $$. but....just saying... because it is a matter of me going back all the time versus.... well, probably never to very infrequently.......
