For the Polish at heart, a good pierogi is a simple meal on its own: dough with cheese and possibly sauerkraut, potato or meat as fillings.
It's a staple food for those of Eastern European descent, especially for Pennsylvanians. But you don't need your grandmother's cooking to enjoy an authentic sampling of the dish. Here are four spots in Philly for delicious pierogies.
648 Roxborough Ave.
9965 Bustleton Ave.
Have you ever wondered what a pierogi filled with blueberries tastes like? The Pierogi Factory has you covered. They also offer seasonal dishes, like their pierogi filled with turkey and stuffing and covered in cranberry sauce and gravy, something they offered this past Thanksgiving. They also deliver. Let your mouth water while watching their cooks at work in the above video.

In addition to their handmade pierogies, this Polish supermarket offers a number of other traditional dishes with a small cafe area to sample your treats. Other Polish foods they offer include Kielbasa, Golabki (stuffed cabbage) and traditional pastries like Babka. Plus, what better to wash it all down than a traditional Polish beer? They've got a number of select brews that you're unlikely to find at your local distributor.
