Finding gluten-free pierogi in Poland

This has been an ongoing search for me: gluten-free pierogi in Poland. I love pierogi, but finding proper wheat-free ones has been difficult. So far, I’ve only found two restaurants that have them on their menus, sadly. However, I have found that Polish brand Bez Gluten makes a gluten-free version.

I’ll update this post if I find more places. In the meantime, here are the results of my searching.

Pod Baranem in Krakow:

A great place for dinner, this is a nice restaurant located near to the main square. They have a dedicated gluten-free kitchen, and also have lovely desserts. If you’re gluten-free, you gotta check this place out. Their pierogi ruskie are amazing and savory.

While Pod Baranem has white tablecloths, this is a airy cafe with a changing menu. Fair warning: while I lucked out on my visit, the menu seems to be always changing.

 

Obiadomek, Wroclaw

Full disclosure: while I live in Wroclaw, I haven’t checked this place out yet. However, their website says that if you call ahead, they can make gluten-free pierogi.

Another way to find gluten-free pierogi is to look for the Bez Gluten brand in health food stores. Organic Farma Zdrawia in the basement of Renoma, for example.

I talk about more gluten-free options in my post on Wroclaw Uncut.

Did I miss your favorite place? I’d love to know about a new place with gluten-free pierogi!
