So how did I find out it was more than a take-out shop (and that it has a name)? Well, a review of by Kelly Burgess came out in the Pine-Richland Patch last Friday, concurring that it is the best pierogies in Southern...er, Western Pennsylvania. I happened to be looking for lunch options, so within two hours, I was at Forgotten Taste, thinking I could then go right next door afterwards to Yum for some froyo. Perfect plan. :)
Based on Burgess' recommendation, I ordered the Hot Sausage Goulash over Pierogi. The goulash was as good as Burgess had promised. The pierogies were also cooked to perfection; the wrapper tastes fresh and perfectly al dente, unlike some soggy versions I've had in the past (there is nothing worse than overcooked pierogies!), while the cheese and potato filling was also fabulous. This place really does serve up some tasty pierogies. It wasn't until I had already placed my order that I saw the sign saying that they can either boil or deep fry the pierogies. Next time, I'm trying them deep fried, though I must say the boiled version was a lot better than I had expected. Also, if you happen to be in the area on Monday and Wednesdays, you can get a meal for a discount price of $4.99, which is a great price for great food. There is also another location in Cranberry and a take-out location in Moon Township.
