Finding (affordable) nori in Paris?

tarteaucitron Apr 2, 2009 05:56 AM

Now, I must say I am not the kind to demand out-of-place food items when on the go in various countries. But I have a teething little one who is a picky and messy eater, and I have discovered a bit late, that nori actually satisfies quite well the criteria for a portable, mess-free source of protein she could happily munch on. The small pack I brought along is finished, and I learned that they cost 6 Euros for 10 standard sized pieces, at the local health food store!

I'm looking for unseasoned nori sheets, the kind that one uses for wrapping sushi. Anyone knows where in Paris might they be more affordable? Thanks in advance.

    Japanese/Korean supermarkets on and around the rues St Anne, and Petit Champs in the 9th.

      I don't know about the prices, but you could try Kanae in the Beaugrenelle part of the 15th.

        Thanks for the suggestions! According to Kanae's website, the prices seem reasonable for Paris. I'll be sure to check them out sometime soon.
