            I live in Parma, Ohio, so pierogies are always everyone's favorite!!

            Don't @ me for using the wrong plural, it's in our vernacular.

                    She was born in the USA?.....sorry but Polish ppl don’t consider you Polish unless u were born in the motherland. 🤷🏼‍♀️ The fact that she doesn’t like vinegar or sauerkraut proves it. 😂 Also pierogi are such a delicate thing. I make my dough paper thin and I really think that’s the key. I’m talking like, you need to see the pepper flakes through the dough. The store bought pierogi are total crap unless you find some grandma who can make them for you.

                          I feel like you shouldn't really say Taiwanese dumplings, because there's actually no dumplings in traditional Taiwanese food. Dumplings don't represent Taiwan very well, and i would say that it represents China more. It was during the Kuomintang's retreat to Taiwan after the Chinese Civil War in 1949, and the arrival of waishengren from China when dumplings were mainstream in Taiwan. More traditional Taiwanese food would be braised pork over rice, oyster pancake, congee, etc.

                                  She could have gave her sour cream and caramelized onions with the pierogi and also fried like some of them.

                                                      @gajaaxo I live in Parma, Ohio, USA, smack dab in between Polish village and Ukranian village. During lent in spring, all of the churches in the greater Cleveland area have fish fry Fridays, and they offer applesauce or sour cream to go with their pierogies. I promise it's so good!! :-)

                                                                                Also, I don't like steamed dumplings. Dumpling are best boiled and fried as leftovers.

                                                                                I agree that potatoes in dumplings is odd. It's like when I see noodles in a sandwich...

                                                                                    The best way to eat a pierogi is with sour cream... I also prefer them boiled but that's probably the less popular way.

                                                                                    • Krzysztof Kumor

If we are talking about ones like with meat filling , definitely not the best way to those those type of pierogi.
