Meat pierogies in Toronto to take home?

Cool. Thank God someone replied! I only come to Toronto a couple times a year and like to stock up. This Benna' they make their own? Or are they supplied by an outside supplier? Did you ever try them? Whatever the answers, thanks. That's close enough to where I stay (near the downtown) to check out.

Here's some background on this "quest". I got hooked on meat pierogies that were made a a place Called Cafe Suava (sp?) run by Polish people which was 10-15 blocks up from the place you are suggesting on the same street! (that is, on Dundas West, which is what Roncesvalles turn into). Place closed down a good 15+ years ago though.

Next, and this is crazy, I found a place run by a CHINESE couple in a little hole-in-the-wall shop next the the World's Biggest Book Store. They sold pierogies fresh cooked or frozen, and they also had a couple of Chinese things on the menu (i.e. egg rolls). Egg rolls were terrible, but the meat pierogies were delicious! Go figure. They only last about 2-3 years that I knew of.

Next, I found meat pierogies made by Supreme pierogies in a shop in Ottawa that were great about 12 years ago while on-the-job training. Luckily, I was smart enough to keep the a bag after I finished them. I knew they were made by "Supreme Pierogies" in Mississauga. I eventually found out they were sold at "Bruno's" Markets, which was within striking distance of where I stay. Great find, and kept me going for years, until, like I say earlier, they ruined the recipe.

So, my quest for great meat pierogies continues. Hopefully, the place you list is my next great find.

Any place to buy good all-meat filled pierogies? I used to enjoy meat pierogies made by Supreme Pierogies, but they completely changed the filling a few years ago from a nice, fine meat filling to a sausage shaped lump that tasted nothing like the original.

Anyway, any place I could go, grocery store, deli, etc. where I could pick up some great meat pierogies would be great.
