Are there any oriental markets in North Broward?

  • m

I want to prepare a sushi feast for my brother for Father's Day but I can't find a store in the NW Broward area where I can buy fresh Masago, Japanese Mayonnaise and a few other items only found in asian markets. Can anyone help? I'm looking for any place in Boca, Deerfield, Pompano, Coral Springs, Coconut Creek, Margate or Tamarac. I don't have a lot of time to run around South Florida tomorrow to get everything I need so need someplace not too far.

    Have you tried the Yellow Pages, and looked for Asian-named places under "Grocery"?

    Oriental Square on University just north of Royal Palm in Coral Springs is a pretty good Chinese-Vietnamese market. There are two or three smaller Vietnamese markets on 441 near Coconut Creek Parkway, a few more along 441 between McNab and Oakland Park (A Dong is the biggest of them, in the same plaza as Silver Pond et al), and for good measure a Korean market on Oakland Park Blvd. by University.

    There are very few Asian markets in North Broward east of 441. I think there's a Korean one on the north side of Sample a little west of Powerline.

    Sounds like you're looking for Japanese items, though. I suppose you'll find at least some of the things you're looking for at these places. The Korean markets might be the best bet short of a Japanese market. I can't think offhand of any actual Japanese markets in that part of the county. There is a small one a bit of a hike away from you in Ft. Lauderdale, in Gateway Plaza on Sunrise just east of the northboiund turnoff for US1.

    Maybe there's something in Boca. Beats me.

    Don't Whole Foods/Fresh Market/Wild Oats carry some of this stuff?

      The oriental square on University in Coral Springs next to Dairy Queen has always had the "fixins" I've needed to make sushi (rice, rice vinegar, nori, etc); but I go elsewhere for my fish.
