Asian grocery store in Porter Exchange mall?

My favorite Asian grocery store in the Porter Exchange Mall closed awhile ago. Does anyone know if a new Asian grocery store took its place or is it still vacant? Thanks!

  1. The Lesley University book store is expanding into that space. (Alas.)

    1. Some of the employees were talking about opening a new store in Medford Square, people have found the location but it seems to be moving forward slowly. If you search this site for Kotobukiya you can find the threads.

      A new store by a different owner also opened right by the Brookline Village T stop, it's smaller and doesn't yet have a comparable veggie or fish selection but it's a place to get some ingredients.

        The Medford store is Ebisuya and is empty. Not sure when they will open. The Japanese store in Brookline Village is decent.
