Time Out says

European Flavour in Caulfield is for those feeling homesick, people who are time poor or individuals who are wanting to experience a Soviet sausage for the very first time.

This is a deli but European Flavour has a focus on ready-made goods, too. They have a selection of cold cuts and cheeses but the real winner is their borscht, a classic Russian beetroot soup that tastes homemade without the fuss (just add sour cream!)

They also sell Russian favourites such as cabbage rolls, pickled tomatoes and liver paté. There is a huge variety of salads as well, including the Russian Olivier salad, which is made from potatoes, vegetables, eggs and mayonnaise.

Other highlights to try are pirozhki which is a puff pastry bun filled with meat or cabbage. Or for those feeling more adventurous can try some cow’s tongue, which is commonly found in homemade sandwiches. Kholodets is also available, which is a gelatine dish of broth, meat and vegetables.
