What a difference a couple months can make. Shelves have been re-organized, the entire shop has been swept clean, and there isn't a SINGLE expired item in the place.
A freezer is now full of some good, high quality pirogi. Another is full of kosher Polish and Russian desserts and other delights.
The deli fridge is stocked with a good selection of various sausages and meats, some imported. Finally, the fridges are full of hard-to-get cheeses and other direct fresh imports.
So, in short .. a full restock, a cleanout of old (or expired items), a massive spring cleaning, and a thorough scrubbing.
WELL DONE SASHAS CAFE! That's what I call 'turning it around'
???????, ???? ????
How does this place stay in business? I went looking for piroshki's and Sasha's was the only 'hit' on citysearch in Austin.
The food on the shelves isn't just 'a little' expired. Some of it has been sitting there for YEARS. It's not just the frozen and canned goods either. Caviar that is two years out of date, frozen items that have long since perished of freezer burn, and even 'fresh boxed' items were, upon closer inspection, also out of date.
This store needs a visit by the local health authorities, an airing out, a full restock, and a new owner. I don't think anything less will fix the problems here.
