        1. re: ALIMELI

          Alimeli, it's simply that online forum etiquette everywhere considers posts that are written all in capital letters to mean the writer is shouting.

          Let us know how your hunt goes! There's Polish deli store called Chopin and a Wawel bakery in NDG if that helps.

          1. re: TheSnowpea

            I think her name IS ACTUALLY ALIMELI...hehe

      2. Alimeli, there are quite a few Eastern European stores in the West Island as well if you are in that area.

        1. On Decarie service road, a little south of Queen Mary, there is a big Eastern European store - Budapest, if I am not mistaken.

            Katchowhound, I'm not trying to be a smarty pants but I think the name is actually "Bucarest" if we are thinking of the same place (?). And if so, it's a very good recommendation and you've reminded me to go back there again so thank you! They seem to carry just about everything from what I remember: Russian Kefir and Polish paczki to Hungarian newspapers as well as Moldovan honey, and wines, etc. I also remember they had really good pickles, white cheeses (bialy cyr) and sauerkrauts, and herbal teas that I hadn't seen since living in Poland, etc. There is also Batory in Mile End, which has a great lunch counter, Europolonia on Amherst for Polish, and Slovenia on Saint-Laurent. I will have to look up that other thread mentioned in earlier post by SnackHappy.

          2. La Vieille Europe, 3850 St. Laurent, north of Pine, a few door south of Schwartzs. Milano Fruiterie, 6862 St. Laurent between Dante & Mozart in Little Italy
