Having a recent craving for the food of My Rare One's people, we went out for lunch last week at Uncle Ed's Ukrainian Restaurant. I've previously mentioned how Edmonton is full of fundraisers right now to aid war-torn Ukraine, so this Special at Uncle Ed's caught my eye --
How could I NOT order it?
As you may know, classic poutine (Canada's contribution to the world of haute cuisine) consists of french fries, cheese curds and gravy. Uncle Ed's ode to Canadian/Ukrainian solidarity consists of perogies, cheese curds, diced ham and gravy.
Behold the Special in all its glory!
It tasted okay, but perogies go better with sour cream than gravy, I must say. However, the cheese curds were right at home!
I topped off lunch with a plateful of delicious blueberry dessert perogies in warm brown sugar cream sauce. OMG so good!
It's not every day you can strike a small blow for freedom with your stomach, so thank you, Uncle Ed's!
