If carbs is what you’re craving, do I have a food truck for you! Located at 700 Homer St in Vancouver (right across from the public library) you’ll find Holy Perogy. Focusing on one dish only has allowed this food cart to create several tasty variations of this traditional Ukrainian dish.
The perogies are large and they have tasty fillings such as mozzarella and parmesan cheese, smoked salmon, seasoned beef etc. The prices range from $9 to $10 depending on what you order.
I tried the Italian Perogies ($9) with potato filling and mozzarella and parmesan cheeses, topped with a garlic salsa and sour cream. I also ordered a side of sausage for $2 and I highly recommend that. How can you have perogies without sausage?
I tell you I was in carb heaven! The perogies are lightly fried and buttery – and the sausage had a hint of spice. I’m not gonna lie, it was a tad heavy for lunch. After I inhaled my perogies all I wanted was to take a nap. But they were so friking good, and for $9 you get a nice portion size. There was enough food for two lunches, if you have the willpower to eat only half a portion. (I didn’t).
Other suggestions for lunch include the Greek ($9) spinach and feta cheese perogies, or the Mexican ($9) seasoned beef and potato filled perogies, topped with sour cream and fresh pico de gallo.
