Whether you’re craving a big bowl of beet soup, various cured meats, or just want to pick up some quality chocolate on the way home, Gourmand Deli has it all. The shop is relatively small and can be easy to miss, but it’s one of our favorite delis in the Richmond and we always end up leaving with way more than we came for. All the staples are here: moskovskaya salami, lots of pickles, and other things like sauerkraut and turnips. They also have kvass, a fermented probiotic drink made from rye bread. The consensus on whether or not it’s good is pretty split, but in case you need a chaser, kompot, a sweet fruit juice, is also a good choice.
