Shirataki in Jersey City

Used to find shirataki noodles (either the regular or the tofu kind) in every grocery store in NYC. But since I moved across the Hudson, I can't find them anywhere.

Yes, I could head to the city and pick some up. But I don't have time to go more than once a week, and not usually for groceries. Any ideas where I can find some in JC?

  1. Have you tried the A&P near Newport? Since International Foods closed, they have added some of the asian brands.

    1. no, i haven't - thanks!

      1. It's not in Jersey City, but there is a huge Japanese/Asian marketplace in Edgewater on River Road called Mitsuwa that will have it.

          Been meaning to hit Mitsuwa for ages - maybe this will be my excuse...

        2. You can order them online at They need no refrigeration, aren't tofu based. I just love this stuff. There are so many different things to do with it. Miracle Noodle has many different shapes, even lasagna noodle. :)
