this is a small shop on Neptune Ave. in Brighton Beach which sells excellent long loaves of fresh, hot bread, as well as cheese filled varieties and other prepared foods.

Virtually no english is spoken, but pointing suffices since the food is on display. We had a lovely dinner last night with delicious spiced pork ribs, heated up in the oven for a few minutes, the bread, a flat round with cheese filling (they also have one in more like filo dough with even more cheese) a long loaf, two different phakli, which are chopped/ground vegetable salads/pastes nade with a walnut and garlic dressing and eaten with bread. The beet was particularly delicious and I dont like beets. The exotic spicings in these dishes were really interesting - they use a lot of coriander and fenugreek, and fresh herbs, among other things.

MOre than well worth the very low prices they charge - for example $4.40 a pound for the meaty pork ribs.
Give it a try!
