Arizona’s Huge Russian Market Has Hundreds Of Imported Foods And Goods
Ethnic restaurants aren’t hard to come by here in Arizona, but sometimes you just want to peruse the aisles of a grocery store. Yasha From Russia is an Eastern European market in Phoenix with smoked meats, homemade borscht, imported wines, and so many more delicacies.
One look at the market's exterior is enough to draw you inside. Adorable Russian dolls are plastered all over the building, taking patrons on an international journey before even walking through the door.
Aisles of European delicacies extend far as the eye can see in every direction. Chocolates, spreads, and traditional dishes such as borscht are just a few of the selections you'll see.
Samples are plentiful and encompass a wide range of foods, so be prepared to leave with a full meal in your belly!
Make your way over to the cold section and explore all the different dairy products and frozen items. Sheep's cheese might sound strange to us, but it's a (surprisingly delicious) staple in Eastern Europe.
Oh, and the Amish Kefir is more creamy than any yogurt regular grocers have to offer!
One of Yasha's most popular goods is alcohol, as the selection is incredibly vast.
Aged wines from Romania and Moldova, robust European beers, and many other options are sure to ignite areas of your taste buds that have been lying dormant for years.
Equally popular is the meat section, which features smoked and salted fish, caviar, and several different summer sausages.
Whether you're picking up ingredients for a charcuterie board or simply branching out in regards to seafood, rest-assured these bold flavors never disappoint.
Let's not forget about dessert! Cakes, pies, and pastries galore will have your eyes and stomach waging war against one another.
Fresh bread is also baked on a daily basis, its crispy crust giving way to the fluffiest, most yeasty interior you could ever imagine.
