Baba And Pop's Kitchen
Baba & Pop's Kitchen brings Italian Sandwiches and Pierogies downtown Denver!
The gist: What started as a pierogi food truck run by Jeremy and Katherine Yurek quickly gained a large following and prompted the couple to open up a brick-and-mortar shop in Aurora’s arts district (close to neighbors Lady Justice brewing). Since its opening in March 2020 (yes, right around when the world shut down), Baba and Pop’s has been a nonstop force of flavor and tradition, honoring Jeremy’s grandparents, THE Baba and Pop.
The food: Well, pierogies, though not just any pierogis. There’s classic potato and cheese, of course, so mouthwateringly good you’ll have eaten a whole dozen before you blink. But the neat thing about Baba and Pop’s—aside from the fact that it also offers other Slavic dishes like stuffed cabbage rolls and a kielbasa and sauerkraut sandwich—is that there is always an array of pierogi flavors to choose from, like the Pizza-rogi with tomato, basil, and mozzarella, the Colorado with Chile Relleno and house green chile, or Uncle Paul’s Pierogi Poutine (pork bone gravy and cheese curds included).
