Pierogies at Veselka

My first bite of pierogi was when I was in college. My close friend Sara insisted that I take a bite of the boiled, potato-filled dumpling with a pile of fried onions and a big dollop of sour cream. I took that wonderful delicious bite and never looked back.

Veselka is one of my favorite spots – I’ve been here so many times and the food always tastes the same! I love all their pierogies, the stuffed cabbage, and the matzo ball soup. Brian and I shared some plates while Lizzie hung around and people watched. The staff was so nice – they gave her a small bowl of water and even offered some homemade dog biscuits!

The show itself was awesome and so worth the trek – but the food was another story. Continue reading
