That delicious aroma of fresh bread that hits your nose as soon as you walk in? It’s coming from that rack of daily made bread right in the front of Lykos European Food Market. Buy it. Buy it now!

Now that that’s settled, take a gander at the refrigerated cases across from the bread. Pretty neat, right? I drooled at the meats and bacon here, too.

There are a few aisles of imported foods inside Lykos European Food Market ranging from spices to cookies to wines. Really, that’s a total guess. All the packaging is in foreign languages so my husband, Jeremy, and I were shopping by pictures!

We picked up a bottle of wine, mineral water bottled in the Serbian mountains of Arandjelovac, and fresh bread. Weird purchases, but that’s what ended up in our hands by the end.

I’m wishing I had picked up a candy bar but I guess I can do that next time. At least, that’s what I translated and inferred from the cover design on something that kind of looked like a bar of chocolate.

Let me say this about the bottle of mineral water: it’s total love/hate. Is there anything else that I’ve had, thought was gross, but then got a craving shortly after to try again? Strange and bizarre but there you go.
