Heres what we dined on..
~Very Special Pierogi Platter - assortment of pierogis stuffed with potato, sauerkraut and cheese, served with a special sauce.
~1/2 order of 1/2 cheese and 1/2 potato pierogis- 1st round fried served with sour cream, and 2nd round boiled and served with special sauce.
~Blintzes - 1 cherry and 1 meat filled.
Initially I had my eye on the potato and lamb soup but since I was running late (stupid local 4 train!) , my friend had a cup of the warm borscht while she waited for me to join her. The borscht was great seeing as how I am a beet fanatic. How ever beets are served, where ever beets are served... I am always ordering. My fried cheese and potato pierogies were the highlight of my entire day! The cheese pierogies were filled with a farmers cheese which had a hint of sweetness, and the classic potato version were crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. And who doesnt want to smear chilled sour cream on something?! My 2nd plate of the same pierogi which was boiled with the a cream sauce this time was still good, but I found this time around the pierogies were too doughy and extremely heavy. This is a dish you eat in the winter when you need to gain extra body heat. Still tasty none the less. I didn't get a chance to taste the blintzes ( I was in a pierogi coma) but my friend said they were delicious. After devouring a large amount of food for 2 girls (even the waitress looked shocked) we weren't at all shocked at the bill. There is always room for cheap eats in my book!
