Canada is known for diversity, but what comes with our diversity is the question, what is Canadian?
Sult Pierogi Bar answers that question with food. Taking an eastern European classic and combining it with world inspired flavours and toppings using canadian sorced seasonal ingredients. The result, NEW CANADIAN CUISINE. Like many other Canadians have reinvented the taco, we do the same with the dumpling. Not making us An eastern Eruopean resturant but New Canadian for all to enjoy.

Pierogi Power at Sült Pierogi Bar
Sült” has etymological roots across Europe. In Gaelic, it refers to pork fat or a dish made of it. In Hungarian, it translates to “fried” and refers to American-style cuisine. In German, “to roast.” Scandinavian translates “Sült” to both hunger and starvation, as well as satisfaction and content. These last meanings well describe people respectively arriving and leaving the downtown Victoria restaurant of the same name.
