Shopping at a Russian supermarket in Moscow
This is a continuation from my previous post on: A Recommendation: Affordable accommodation in Moscow, Izmailovo Gamma Delta
There was a supermarket near our hotel at Izmailovo Gamma Delta near the Partizanskaya metro station, a 25 minute train ride from the city. It made things really convenient for us, as we could get ready-to-eat hot food there for breakfast. We tried an eggplant and chicken leg which was nice, though I thought the rice was a little stale and oily.
The selection is items were quite interesting and very wide, though the prices are slightly higher than what you would find in an Asian country. I would say, it’s on par with prices in other European countries. Check out the pictures below!
I’d say, they have got pretty much covered in the areas of food. As for non-food items, it’s best you head to somewhere else. There were some nail clippers/ bottles of shampoo on sale, but no one was tending to that area. It looked like ages since anyone had bought a non-food item from there.
