The owners are of Russian descent but the shelves are lined with items from Eastern Europe, and Israel. Russia, Poland, Bulgaria, Latvia, Hungary, you'll find somethin' here. In the refrigerated section, pretty much any combination of beets, potatoes, and cabbage is available. As far as packaged goods, variation is no obstacle, and they have just about everything (or an alternative) to anything you might possibly want from the Motherland.
Great little Lithuanian deli/market that doubles as a neighborhood convenience store. The owners are very friendly and helpful and gave me a guided tour of all the Lithuanian specialty items ranged from mayonnaise, canned goods, sausages, to chocolates. For a quick snack, I highly recommend the Dadu ice cream treat that is prominently advertised.
Great ethnic foods here that are a deal. Good value for anything you buy here. Nice variety of international foods. All kinds of veggies, hard to find greens. Good market with awesome prices for produce. VISIT SITE

Babushkas deli is a treasure within itself, with many Russian (and Polish) choices that will make you feel right at home. They also import goods from Russia, which ads to the validity of the deli. This is more than just a little deli tucked away in a nondescript strip mall. They've got canned good, fresh fruit, dried goods, deli meats, fish and cheeses. They have an array of prepared foods.
Rasputin is a fabulous market that offers up fresh produce and hard-to-find candies, liquors, edibles (namely from Russia and the Middle East). The store has a good selection of European foods. The deli section is big, well stocked(unless you are there right before Russian or Jewish holidays), and always fresh. Best russian deli in the area. Good variety of cold cuts, ready hot food, salads, bakery.
It's the first Lithuanian food store in Los Angeles. They have imported many things from the old country including impossible-to-find specialty pickles and cabbage, frozen foods like Dadu ice cream. They stock electric graters that shred potatoes for cepelinai, kugelis, and of course potato pancakes. VISIT SITE
