Fine Gourmet Deli
Time Out says
Fine Gourmet Deli is a large store overflowing with Eastern European fare and drink in Bentleigh. Their focus is on sourcing products locally or importing internationally.
Their small goods have all the standard offerings including a wide range of smoked, fermented and boiled sausages. They sell the ever-so-popular Moskovskaya sausage, which is smoked with garlic and made from pork and beef.
From the sea, they have black and red caviar, and the traditional salt dried Russian Vobla fish. Traditionally, this fish is consumed with a beer and luckily at Fine Gourmet Deli, beverages are their speciality. They have a large range of imported alcohol and – unsurprisingly – vodka.
They also stock a renowned carbonated drink called kvass. It's made from rye bread, yeast and fruit but considered non-alcoholic. Additionally, they have a wide selection of fruit juices including the all-time favourite flavour, sour cherry.
Their shelves are also filled with a large variety of Russia’s beloved buckwheat. Plus on any given day they offer obscure Russian products including cosmetics and even children’s books. This is truly your one stop Russian shop.
