European Deli, Richmond
I don't mean Odessa, Texas, folks, more like Odessa, Ukraine, where the owner hails from. The European Deli on West Broad Street at Tuckernuck Square Shopping Centre brings Eastern Europe home to a surprisingly large slice of that community in the Richmond area. Some of the packages are in either English and Russian (in the cyrillic alphabet) or all Russian.
What to buy: It features a deli and Russian and other Eastern European canned and baked goods, meats, cheeses, beers, including eastern European cheeses, and Russian caviar. My mama likes teas as much as I like coffee. So, she got herself some tea. I was looking for some kvas (a Russian drink made in part from fermented bread that I discovered at a Russian restaurant). Sadly, they didn't have it as of March, 2009, but I'll go back. I like the owners.
