Shishito peppers

  • 3

Had shishito peppers appetizer at a Japanese restaurant in NYC. Are there any restaurants that serve them in Bergen County NJ? Any food stores that sell them?
Thanks!

  1. i could swear i saw them as a special on a menu at a Japanese restaurant around here....maybe Wild Ginger in Englewood?

    in terms of food stores, your best bet is definitely Mitsuwa on River Road in Edgewater.

    1. Shisito peppers have been a favorite of mine for a few years now. Although most frequently I see them offered sauteed, ask for them tempura style for a special treat. I have bought fresh peppers from the grocery at Mitsuwa, although they are not always for sale. Must be seasonal.

      1. The Piermont farmers market has a vendor that usually sells the shishito pepper. Not too far from the Bergen Co. boarder, you just need to wait until the market opens again in the Spring.
