This place has been mentioned MANY times here, but haven't seen any posts in a while.

Last night got a bunch of amazing stuff:

Prepared food: amazing stuffed cabbage, and a cabbage/egg/fresh dill strudel.

Single best loaf of whole grain bread I have had in the last 5 years from their in-house bakery, nice amount of sunflower, oats, and sesame in the bread.

Huge jar of pickled herring for $8.

Their jam section is great. I bot a bucket of nice Israeli plum jam and some raspberry jam. Keep an eye out for the Penguin brand cherry jam too.

These guys have the best salami / cured meat selection in greater Boston, period. I picked up some dry smoked beef salami and some Hungarian spicy salami, but there were literally 40 others to choose from.

The smoked fish section is also unequaled in Boston.

Saw a guy filling a bag from the bulk freezers of Pelmenyi (meat dumplings like big tortellini). Next time.

In short, just a great selection of groceries, dairy (yogurts and farmer's cheeses) pickles (fresh and jarred) and other Eastern European delights.

Got a pound of my SO's favorite loose black tea for $7 and tried another Turkish brand for $5 a pound (we'll see how she likes it). Compare to WF for $20 and up for loose tea.

Just luv this place. Wish it was closer.
