It’s like visiting family. I have two “for real” Uncle Eds, so going to Uncle Ed’s Restaurant for perogies and verbal sparring is become as traditional as wine on Friday night. The ladies who work here remind me of family. They treat me like family, except the best part is they haven’t (yet) tossed me a towel and asked me to do dishes.
My friend Sandra introduced me to Uncle Ed’s, and it has become a favourite place for lunch, usually after getting tricked into doing yard work at St. Mary’s Church. Their menu offers a great selection of all things Ukrainian, and in my opinion, the best things are the #1, Mundare Sausage Plate for supper. The #1 offers: a sausage, 4 perogies, 4 cabbage rolls (your choice of sweet or sour), 2 baked cheese buns, and 2 cheese crepes, which we Ukrainians know as nalysnyky, and happens to be my most favourite food on the planet. Okay, one of my most favourite foods on the planet. For lunch, I opt for the #13 Potato and Sauerkraut perogie combination plate, which offers: 5 perogies, 2 cabbage rolls, 1 baked cheese bun and 2 cheese crepes.
As I was enjoying dinner tonight, I had the thought that I should make t-shirts that say, “Body Built with Perogies”. Because it’s true, and right at this moment I’ve had to unbutton my pants to allow for expansion. I moan every time I feel like this and cry out to anyone who will listen: “Why oh why oh why don’t I just crave and love eating salad and celery and bits of tofu?”.
If you are craving perogies, this is the place to go. They offer several choices, my favourite being the sauerkraut and potato, Michael’s favourite, potato and onion, and then there’s also potato and cottage cheese, and potato and cheddar cheese.
