The Euro Delicatessen opened last month at 2746 Festival Lane, just outside Dublin's borders, and offers meats, fish, baked goods, pickled vegetables, tea, coffee and other European fare.

Owner Zina Solokha opened the first Euro Delicatessen eight years ago in Galloway.

"Over eight years, we had customers coming on a regular basis from Dublin, Westerville and the Polaris area," she said. "They were begging us to move north. They were just coming once a month to shop and freezing everything."

With the opening of the new store, some customers won't have to make the long drive to the store that offers food from such countries as Poland, Russia, Ukraine, Hungary, Lithuania, Turkey, Germany, Macedonia, Bulgaria and Croatia.

The meat is processed in New York and Chicago with European recipes, and desserts come from New York and local bakers. Cheese and other items are bought from importers, Solokha said.

"I order from importers and work with quite a few vendors," she said. "I order from them every week. None of them are in Columbus, which makes it harder because of transportation."

The store also offers bread brought in from the German-run Rudolph's Bakery in Canada and Michael's Bakery in Cleveland. Lithuanian bread comes to the store frozen.

Solokha and her family came from the Ukraine more than 20 years ago. A Mennonite congregation in Plain City sponsored the family. "Dublin was one of the first cities we learned English in," the Hilliard resident said, adding that a church on the west side of Sawmill Road hosted English-as -a-Second-Language classes.

Several languages can be heard around the store on any given day, Solokha said, but Americans also frequent the Euro Delicatessen.

"A lot of people live in Chicago or New York and move to Columbus. They're more exposed to that type of food," she said.

Some just wander into the store and discover new foods.

"We welcome all Americans," Solokha said. "It's good to try something different."

German chocolate is a big favorite, as is kielbasa and pierogies, Solokha said.

"I think we sell the best kielbasa in town because it's fully smoked," Solokha said. "That's what people eat over there."

Although several foods around the Euro Delicatessen are packaged with only foreign language labels, Solokha said, they try to put English labels on everything so customers can check out ingredients, nutrition facts and where it comes from. Employees also can be a wealth of knowledge.

"We are open to questions," she said. "You can try the deli meat and cheeses. We're usually pretty open to that. We let people try the cakes they've never had before. Around the holidays, we cook fresh kielbasa for samples."

The Euro Delicatessen is at Festival Lane, in the shopping center that also houses David's Bridal, and open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays.
