loaded pierogi

All pierogi restaurant coming to Toronto's east side

Good news pierogi fans - Toronto's first all pierogi restaurant is expanding to a second location east of the DVP. The Loaded Pierogi, which opened late last year at the base of Church St., has secured a space at 1044 Gerrard East near Jones with a tentative May opening in sight.

Real estate site Spring Realty reports that this addition to North Leslieville comes courtesy of serial-restaurateur Ted Koutsogiannopoulos (formerly of Joy Bistro and owner of Gerrard East trio McGugan's Pub, Great Burger Kitchen and Aprile Bambina Cucina.)

The restaurant is expected to sport the same menu as the original but will also do delivery meaning pierogi dinners with kimchi, butter chicken and lobster will soon be feeding Polish-inspired food starved residents of surrounding 'hoods like the Beaches, Riverdale and Little India.
