Mame Nori - Soy Wraps


I'm hosting a sushi party next week, and I have some friends who don't eat nori and I need to find the mame nori ( as a substitute. I frequent the 99 Ranch's, and local korean markets, but I don't think I've ever seen it. Either that, or I just have ever looked for it because I've never needed it.

Does anyone know for sure where there's a place to get it?

  1. You could also try inari (tofu pouches) for the non-nori eaters. I think the inari sells in cans at Asian markets.

      even better than the canned aburage (abura-age)... is the fresh version of the fried tofu pouches for inari zushi. You will find it in the fresh food refrigerated section at any Japanese grocers... probably next to the fresh noodles and gyoza wraps.

    2. I have seen them at Nijiya in San Francisco as well as Kukje Korean market in Daly City recently (in the last month or two) but not specifically this week.
