Best pierogis in LA?

The xinkali and pilmeni at Sherman Way Grill and Pizza are quite good. You would never know from the name that they sell dumplings. The xinkali are like large soup dumplings, though I personally prefer the pilmeni, which are smaller and peppery.

Odessa Market on Magnolia and Laurel Canyon also sometimes has xinkali in its hot food case.

the khinkali are georgian version of soup dumplings.

Moscow Deli in OC

I can vouch for the borscht and pelmini which are excellent.

The vareniki (basically pierogi) I’ve never tried.

You should go to Traktir.

is apparently in danger of shuttering for good as a consequence of the pandemic. they have a gofundme page to help raise funds to pay back rent.
