Russian Deli

December 24, 2009

From Sawtat about Aleksey Market on Thompson Lane:

I dont’ know if you have been there yet, but I just went to the Russian deli over on Thompson Lane (Berry Hill), and their cured meats are totally amazing.  I got Hungarian spicy salami and “hunter” salami, and they are both awesome and super cheap ($2.25 -$2.50 for a quarter pound).  Dark Russian rye bread, chicken dumplings (frozen for soup) and yogurt Havarti cheese.  I can’t believe we haven’t been there before now.

We have other friends who swear by the place, and have been going there for years.  Whenever they have a get-together, they serve one of our favorite party dishes: pickled white herring from Aleksey.  (615) 383-0071.
