shirataki noodles

Hi Chowfolks-

I just learned about these and would like to try them. Does anyone know where they can be purchased in the Quincy area. Calls to local likely spots-Kam Man, Super 88, Stop and Shop, Hannaford all yielded NOs.

Does anyone know of a place around here that carries them or must I truck on over to Super88 in Allston (which wouldn't be a bad thing, just might delay me).

  1. They're definitely at Super 88

    1. I've found them at Whole Foods

      1. Roche Bros. (at least the one in Burlington) carries Tofu Shirataki regularly - I know I've seen the just-plain Shirataki there too, but don't know if they carry them all the time.

        1. My guess is,they have them at Kam Man, and you probably just ran into a language problem, or someone who was too bust=y to check; they seem to have a zillion products!...But yes, Whole Foods and Roche Brothers...

          1. Assuming you mean the whitish/clear ones made of yam, I've seen them at a number of Chinese grocery stores. I tend to favor the Japanese brands vs. the Chinese ones. If you're ever in Chinatown, Sun Sun Market carries the Japanese brand that I think has a better body to it than that of the Chinese brands.
