In case you missed last night’s finale of Top Chef Canada, the Perogy Boyz food truck was one of three (Alley Burger and Pimento’s joined us) Calgary trucks invited to be a part of the game! The final three chefs were challenged to create street food concept and impress the judges, or be eliminated! In the end, the Perogy Boyz truck was a taco truck featuring Juan Tons – dumpling stuffed Mexican spiced pork, and a refried black bean with brown butter puree with cheese and salsa. Sadly Chef Goodyear couldn’t impress the judges with this dish but it was a valiant effort. In case you missed the finale, check it out on Food Network Canada’s website. And for a … Read More
A new round of media buzz is happening in Calgary–this time over the number of licenses being issued to new food trucks. Just over a year into the City of Calgary’s pilot project there are 34 food trucks on the street, with 10 more pending approval. What do you think, is this enough food trucks or should the city keep granting licenses? Either way, we’re not going anywhere. Perogies to the People! Watch the video by clicking on the images below.
It’s finally happening! Last Fall, we were one of the Calgary food trucks filmed for an episode of Eat Street and this week Food Network released the schedule. May 23rd at 9:30pm we make our small screen debut along with the Purple Carrot Truck from Lansing Michigan, Miami’s Sugar Rush (deep-fried cupcakes, yum), and San Francisco’s Le Truc. A viewing party is in the works, standby for updates on location. There will be perogies. There will also be beer. Other Calgary trucks to be featured: Alley Burger: May 9th Fries & Dolls: May 23rd

From February 23-26, the YYC Food Trucks will rally at the Calgary Home + Garden Show at the BMO Centre (Stampede Park).

We’re also introducing new sizing this week, making sure our comrades of all appetites leave full and happy!
The Perogy Boyz will be boyz. On our day off I started poking around on the office computer and discovered that the browser history had not been cleared. Much to my surprise, there was nothing scandalous at all (this would be a gross violation of our policy… that nobody has read anyways). I did find one interesting tidbit of information, however, that I wanted to share with you perogy-lovers. It seems that there is a Ukrainian pop star that many compare to Britany Spears. Now, the one thing that you will notice is that she is brunette, but when we line up comparisons we can actually make a compelling case: Ani Lorak: pop singer, actress & mother Britney Spears: pop … Read More
When winter started to rear its ugly head we had a decision to make: go to our families’ winter homes on the shores of the Black Sea or press on and keep bringing the people of Calgary perogies. We decided we couldn’t leave our girl frozen and cold during the winter months and took it as a personal challenge to remain open all winter. These were our concerns: – Will this truck that we picked up on Hollywood Boulevard (like Pretty Woman) survive winter? – Will our staff moan about being too cold? – Will people leave their homes/offices to stand on the street corner (like Pretty Woman)? Turns out that a little insulation on the pipes, new gloves … Read More
A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of meeting Christina Forsyth, an amazing Calgary-based photographer who followed us around for a few days snapping pics of all things Perogy Boyz. From street service to close-ups with our perogy and sausage suppliers, we are thrilled with the results. Watch for more amazing shots in future blog posts.

In case you missed it, Saturday morning our head chef and perogy pincher Shawn Greenwood visited Global TV with our man on the truck Pascal. If there’s one thing we’ve noticed about doing TV in Calgary it’s that when the Perogy Boyz come around everyone and says hi. At first we thought maybe it’s because we’re so darned good looking but it turns out they all want a perogy. Enjoy by clicking here or the image below.
Tis the the season of the office ‘non-denominational winter gift exchange’ and before you run out to one of the sexy shops on 16th Avenue, we, the Perogy Boyz have launched Calgary’s first mobile food truck gift cards!
