Sophie’s Gourmet Pierogi
900 Columbus Ave,
Marysville, OH 43040
I will admit it. My name is Caroline and I have a pierogi problem. I’ve eaten them in Pittsburgh, I’ve made them at home, and I’ve devoured them at Sophie’s. Sophie’s Gourmet Pierogi is without a doubt my favorite. Because when you get great pierogi + your choice of flavored butter, what’s there not to love?
First let’s talk about the pierogi themselves. These potato nuggets wrapped in a dumpling dough are everything you’ve been craving. They pair perfectly with beer too. Sophie’s refers to their offerings as “gastrogi,” because these are not your average Polish treat. Most of the meals begin with the gastrogi, which are griddled until crispy. Sophie’s then tops these guys with your choice of butters, and/or your favorite garnish, making the pierogi anything but ordinary. For butters, get a dollop of lemon basil, smoked paprika garlic, or salami grain mustard to melt and ooze down the pierogi, or keep things simple and add bacon, cheddar, or grilled onions, plus sour cream for dipping purposes. I prefer to add them all!
The limited time specials at Sophie’s are memorable too. I’ve sampled the chocolate pierogi at a Rockmill Brewery event, filled with a prune butter and sprinkled with lemon sea salt. Other items such as the Beer Belly sandwich, containing broccoli rabe, garlic, and pork belly, and the Sausage Sandwich (uncovered at the Grain + Grape), is a delight of pierogi, sausage, mustard-chive butter, caramelized onions, are fabulous. I haven’t yet caught up to Sophie’s during brunch, but the Honey Ham and Eggs special of pierogi, eggs, ham, and hollandaise sounds positively sinful.
Catch up with this cart at your favorite local brewery or event around town – I promise it will be satisfying and delicious! Have you tried them yet? Let me know what you thought!
