Source for Japanese/Asian ingredients
Is there a good source for Japanese/Asian ingredients in KC? Specifically i'm looking for udon noodles, dashi, mirin for an udon noodle dish for an upcoming dinner party. I usually shop at Brookside Market, but haven't shopped or cooked a lot with these ingredients. Any suggestions?
Funny you should ask. The Chinatown Market in the River Market has a great selection of just about anything, and they just had a little blurb about it in the Pitch.
Out at 119th and Highway 69, the new 888 Market looks pretty impressive, too. I haven't been there myself, though, so you'll have to take the work of someone else.
