Russian markets in the Twin Cities?

Now that Kiev Foods has closed (sob), where are the remaining Russian groceries/delis in the Twin Cities? A friend is hunting for tvorog, and I need some chocolates. Thanks for your help!

  1. Minsk Market in Eagan - never been in, so I don't know what they carry.

    1. re: Slightly Grey

      This is my regular go-to Russian market. They are small but have a good selection. They have a lot of candies both individual pieces and in boxes. They also have an extensive meat and cheese selection, cut to order. If you're there at the right time, you can get some of their fresh made E. European breads, dense and heavy.

    2. European Delicacies
      11044 Cedar Lake Road Hopkins, MN 55305

      1. Ukraine Deli in Coon Rapids on Foley Blvd. A lot of homemade delicacies.

        1. If you're in the south metro (Burnsville/Eagan), you have a choice of a few.

          Minsk Market on Beau D'Rue drive and the Eastern European Market on 13 and Parkwood further west are reliable.

          1. Does anyone have an up to date list/recommendation for someone in Minneapolis/North Suburbs?

            The closest I go to is EuroGourmet in SLP in the strip mall on Minnetonka Blvd. Russian in-laws from Boston (large Russian population) coming to town for extended stay and they'd like to go for some staples...
