Located in Downtown Seattle.
It’s a Russian place specializing in sweet and sour pastries called pieroshki.
BUT! They also sell PIEROGI and I wouldn’t have mentioned them if they weren’t really good!
Their pierogi are spelled PIROGY and PIROGIES on the menu and you can eat them with different fillings.
Pierogi Fillings: Cheese, potatoes, potato & mushrooms, and beef fillings.
You get your pierogi boiled and served with melted butter and sour cream.
They sell borscht (beet soup with a side of sour cream) everyday and offer a choice of another traditional soup on different days of the week.
A cup of borscht costs $3.85/ LG bowl $4.95.
Apart from that, you have a variety of lunch specials!
Also, you gotta try some of their mind-blowing pastries!
I found their PIROGY really tasty and popped in for lunch whenever I visited the neighborhood. They simply care about to make their food tasty and filling!
2. Sebi’s Bistro – 3242 Eastlake Ave E, Seattle
Open: Mon – Thurs 4 p.m. -10 p.m. and Fri – Sat 4 p.m.- 11p.m.
Portion of 10 pierogi costs you $12
Pierogi Fillings: potato & cheese, potato & cheddar, potato & meat, sauerkraut & mushrooms, meat.
I was told the pierogi filling menu frequently changes so, you never know what type of pierogi you’ll find here.
However, I need to say being Polish and having lived in Poland for many years I was never served pierogi with sauerkraut or cabbage on the side… I strongly believe it is a sort of anomaly you will meet only behind the borders of Poland. The Polish serve pierogi with sour CREME not sauerkraut… did somebody not understand the recipe? In my opinion, this practice should be stopped.
Your boiled potato & cheese pierogi are served with red cabbage or sour cream. As I said you pay $12 for them but there is also an option of having pan fried pierogi that cost $8 (but I couldn’t get an answer when I asked about the difference in the price).
Additionally, there you can have Pyzy (potato dumplings with meat filling) for $13.
You have a chance of ordering a “Polish Platter” that consists of Gołąbki (cabbage rolls), Polish kiełbasa, served with a side of veggies for $15
Their cup of borscht costs $4 and you pay $6 for a bowl.
3. PB Kitchen at Polish Home Association – 1714 18th Ave, Seattle
Open: Fri 4 p.m. – 11 p.m. and Sun 1 p.m. – 4 p.m.
Portion of 10 pierogi costs $11 or $12
Fillings: potato & cheese, sauerkraut & mushrooms,
They do have pierogi but these pierogi are rather doughy and nobody ever said they are homemade so don’t take it for granted. In the menu, you will find blueberries pierogi, pierogi with sweet cheese, as well as meat pierogi for $12.
However, they serve homemade meat pierogi at Polish Bazaars twice a year.
You can also order a Polish Platter that consists of one meat and rice cabbage roll, 4 pierogi, sausage, mashed potatoes with dill and a spoon of sauerkraut for $16. Here, a bowl of borscht costs $5.
