Awesome Eastern European Grocery near O'Hare

We stumbled across this grocery store by accident when a flight was cancelled and we had time to kill. It is called "Produce World" (little hint as to what is inside!) It is on Lawrence @ Cumberland. The produce is unremarkable, but venture past that section into a store stuffed full of great european delicacies all at cheap prices. We found Greek and other cheeses, hard to find Italian and Russian cakes and pastries, A really good deli and meat department( cevapcici!), Lots of great pickles and jams, endless brands of Ouzo and Slivovitz, and best of all, a whole section of european chocolates and candy ( try the $3.99 a lb. bulk chocolates ( sample the chocolate covered cherries in brandy!) We love this place- check it out!

someone asked about a place to find an Italian beef near O'Hare. There is a little fast food place called "Plush Pup" that has decent beefs a bit down from PW on Cumberland just north of that Ukranian Catholic church that looks like a space ship.
