Favorite Pierogarnia in Krakow

What is your favorite pierogarnia in Krakow? Mine is a little shop close to Nowy Kleparz, just north of Aleja on ul. Sląska (see map below). They have wonderful krokiety (my favorite - mushroom and cheese) as well as good naleśniki and gołąbki. There was another near Starowiślna, but I recently discovered that they have closed shop. They prepared great mielony as well as a fried apple cake that was delicious. I'm sorry to see them go out of business.

I hope some of you fellow Krakovians can give the rest of us some good advice on where to buy tasty Polish food.

I like świat pierogi, it is away from the tourists and the hassle of the city centre.

I am not a pierogi expert, I ate pierogi here twice, they were 300% better than the frozen strawberry ones from lidl that someone cooked for me once, no surprise there. I loved listening to people ordering them at the counter and trying to figure out what was doing on. They have some nice choices. One woman ordered a portion of pierogi, half of one kind and half of another kind which was a great idea because you can get to taste 2 kinds for the price of one portion, the next time I was there I ordered half and half also :-) was half a language test and half an experiment to find some ones that I would like again.

The woman behind the counter asked me something about how I wanted them cooked, she suggested something and I just agreed with seemed like a standard question, maybe someone knows what it could have been.

Before I ate pierogi here they always looked like something raw and doughy that I wouldn't want to eat, now I would try them again but I have yet to find a filling that I really like.

I love your description regarding the ordering process. I admire your candor. It brought back for me early memories of my Polish days. I know exactly what you mean by it being a test. :) (you got your pierogis and that's what really counts)

Hi Rybnik,

What is your favourite city in Poland? And to keep everything on topic do you have favourite pierogarnia there or some other favourite food place, maybe a pancake place?

Hi Catsoldier!
My favourite city is Wrocław, seeing as I spent 6 of my 7 years in Poland.
During my time there were no pierogarnias that I knew of. But there were plenty of hotels with pretty decent restaurants.
Oh but that was man years ago :)
