There's no better place to pick up authentic Russian foods that Odessa Grocery on Santa Monica blvd. The same friendly lady is always behind the counter when I come in and brightens my day. It's great to come buy delicious food from here but even better when you're served by such a sweetheart. A great place for Russian and all around traditional European foods. They have a nice deli section, fresh produce, baked goods, a lot of canned goods, frozen food, and nuts to name a some of their items.
