“Russia in Mundelein”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

Not quite sure why Alef chose to name his Russian market a "sausage" shop but this is a fabulous, full-line Russian supermarket. Prices are reasonable and the selection of dairy, bakery, frozen, deli meats, prepared ethnic foods and dry items (including lots of Russian candies) is surprisingly huge. They have, for example, no less than 4 brands of frozen Pelmini, a true Russian favorite, and at prices better than I have seen in teh States before. Normally, it is possible to find one staff member who speaks English but, when that has not ben the case, I have always been able to find a bilingual shopper to help me with reading of labels and making selections. This shop is a total winner and worth a drive to "stock up"if you are looking for authentic Russian foods. Note, however, that this is a market and not a restaurant.
