When someone visits Pittsburgh for the first time, where should you go? The most common response is Primanti Brothers for the sandwiches with fries and coleslaw. While I agree that Primanti’s is a required stop for visitors to the steel city, I think that Pierogies are another key food symbol of Pittsburgh.
The hard question is, if you are visiting and want pierogies – where do you find good Pierogies in downtown Pittsburgh?
Answer: Mike & Tony’s Gyros
Mike & Tony’s Gyros not only has arguably the best gyros in downtown Pittsburgh, but also care pierogies from Pierogis Plus. Pierogies Plus were the proud winners of the WPXI Pittsburgh’s Best Pierogies contest.
Willing to cross the Allegheny River? Go to the James Street Gastropub and Speakeasy on Foreland Ave on the northside. The pierogis are homemade and dressed with an infused sour cream that will make your mouth water. (James Street Gastropub opened after the Best Pierogies contest. The Pittsburgh TasteBuds predict that James Street will win next time).
