Traveling Pierogi – Tampa Bay

Happy Monday!

Jesse and I traveled this weekend so I was not able to make pierogi on Sunday like I usually do. We were in Florida for work and decided to stay the weekend to spend time with Jesse’s Mom and family. Disappointed that I would miss my Sunday pierogi fix, I checked yelp for Polish restaurants in the area. A few places popped up but the one that interested me the most was the Pierogi Grill and Euro Market in Clearwater, Florida. They had good reviews and pictures on yelp so we decided to have lunch there on our way to the Tampa airport. 

As we pulled into the parking lot we were surprised to see that the restaurant had an Egyptian themed decor. At first we thought the owner bought the restaurant like this and never redecorated but we were wrong. The owner’s intention was for it to be Egyptian themed, serving Egyptian food. In fact, he owned 4 Egyptian restaurants in Poland.  Thankfully, a Pole serving Egyptian food in Florida didn’t take and he went back to his Polish roots, and the pierogi was a hit with the locals. Now they even have a ‘Pierogi’ Police car parked in front!

Inside the floors were carved with hieroglyphics, the walls looked like an Egyptian pyramid, and a life size statue of a pharaoh was near the bathrooms. In the back of the restaurant, there is a small euro market. They sell European candies and pantry items as well as deli meats and pastries. A few of my favorite items I was surprised they sold were poppy seed roll, paczki (polish donut), and chrusciki (also known as polish angel wings). 

The menu was filled with all my Polish favorites, plus a lot I’ve never tried before. They had traditional savory filled pierogi and fruit filled pierogi. We tried potato & farmers cheese, potato & cheddar cheese, and cabbage. The potato & farms cheese were the best of the ones we tried.

We also tried their potato pancakes. They were amazing! Just as good as a NEPA church bazaar. 

I highly recommend checking out this restaurant if you are in the Tampa Bay area. They are located in Clearwater at 1535 Gulf to Bay Blvd, Clearwater, FL 33755. If you go on your birthday, they offer a free pierogi dinner!

I am so proud when I can find a place far from home that serves the same food I grew up on. Everywhere you go has Italian, Mexican, and Asian food. How cliche! What about Polish food? Give it a chance and I guarantee you will fall in love.

I hope you enjoyed my pierogi adventures. Stay toned next week for my write up on the pierogi scene in Las Vegas!
