Wendy’s Gourmet Perogies has been on my list to try for ages. It’s located in a small strip plaza (the closest landmark being D’Amores Mercanto). Never been able to make it out because they’re only open on weekdays but I finally was one Thursday afternoon.
The inside is very diner-esque but there’s plenty of seating. You can grab some perogies for home (there’s a freezer up front).
Otherwise, there’s a small menu up on the board at the back.
One of the workers greeted me and is super friendly (not sure if this was Wendy herself). Told her it was my first visit and she said she’d take care of me.
Meal #2 ($10.50)
6 perogies, Kubasa sausage and meatballs. They had four types available so she gave me the full smorgasboard. Dill and swiss, bacon and cheddar, cheddar and cheese and Shepard’s pie. The sausage was too salty but the meatballs with gravy slathered on top was satisfying.
As for the perogies, I like that they’re homemade but they were lacking in flavour and texture. The filling was bland. Sure, each perogy was plump but size ain’t everything.
It’s cash or debit if your meal is $20.00 or under. It was worth a visit but doubt I’ll be rushing back anytime soon. I can’t help but to compare them to Uncle Ed’s. Those still can’t be beat.
