Mori-miso

Where can I buy mori-miso in Manhattan? I love this dish at Hagi -- cucumbers served with mori-miso. I've looked at the japanese markets (sunrise market, katagiri, yagura) but can't find it... thanks for your help.

    What you want is called moromi, and the dish with cucumbers is called moro-kyu (short for moromi kyuri -- kyuri meaning cucumber). I think the only place I've found moromi is JAS Mart or its parent shop Mitsuwa in NJ. It comes in a small clear vacuum pack bag (about 4-5 oz I would say).

    Here's a website with more info on miso and some of its varieties (look under Hisshio miso for info on moromi): http://www.nymtc.com/pl_general/miso....
