I do my weekly grocery shopping at the local supermarket chain Tiv Taam. Among ex-pats itâ€™s also known as the Russian supermarket because a lot of Russian people work and shop there. And also because they sell loads of Russian food: from buckwheat to pork and everything in between. Since a couple of months I do my shopping at their flagship store in Rishon Letsion. For Israeli standards (and Dutch standards too) it is a very big supermarket that has 2 restaurants, 2 food-bars and a regular bar actually inside the supermarket itself (so before the cash register). Itâ€™s not something Iâ€™m used to in the Netherlands but maybe this is normal in other countries?
Anywayâ€¦walking by the candy corner I say these really cute Russian cookies, petit beurre type of cookies (most likely without the beurre).
I asked the (Russian) sales lady in my best Hebrew what the words meant, she answered (in her best Hebrew) but I couldnâ€™t understand. Havenâ€™t worked out what it means but the one with the cow is pronounced â€˜buryonkaâ€™ and the one with the girl â€˜alyenaâ€™ I think. I did check if it meant cow and girl but it didnâ€™t. They are not really tasty by the way.
Maybe inspired by Finding Nemo? These were sort of tasty. They have a little bit of coconut inside and are sprinkled with sugar, much like Dutch Nizza or Zaanse Kermis cookies.
This might be suitable for 50+ bold men?
This is my absolute favouriteâ€¦very Israeliâ€¦everybody here owns at least 2 mobiles and uses them anywhere and everywhereâ€¦there is pretty much no etiquette about using them. Tastes the same as the fishy cookies.
