Where do pierogi on Polish tables come from?


Pierogi were on Polish tables as early as the 13th century. The name “pierogi” probably comes from the Old Slavic word “pir”, which means party, feast or merry gathering. From this we can deduce that pierogi were the most popular dish for a feast. Did you know that pierogi came to us from China? Legend has it that they arrived in Poland thanks to Bishop Jacek Odrowąż, who became enthralled with them in Kiev. At first pierogi in Poland were served on special occasions, today you can enjoy them whenever you want at Pierogarnia Stary Młyn!


Classic and uncommon pierogi flavors


At Pierogarnia Stary Młyn, as previously mentioned we rely on tradition and classic flavors, but we also try to surprise guests with unobvious combinations in our pierogi stuffing. A classic, not to be missed on our menu, is the grzybobranie pierogi with cabbage and mushrooms. An interesting and much-loved combination by our guests is Jagnięce pierogi with lamb marinated in dried cranberries and orange juice. Among the wide selection of pierogi, Diabelskie pierogi with stewed beef, pickled cucumber, pickled peppers and onions catch your eye. Our dishes feature many products from local suppliers, as we are committed to high quality!
