Cambridge source to buy miso paste?
Ever since Kotobukiya departed the Porter Exchange building I've had trouble finding Asian groceries in walking distance. Even Whole Foods tends to only stock dark miso (most of my recipes are better with light miso), and even then it's hit-or-miss.
I'm also looking for yeast flakes (aka brewers yeast or nutritional yeast) but that's probably a lost cause without a genuine old-fashioned health food store.
Any suggestions are welcome.
There's a small Asian market between Porter and Davis square along Mass Ave. I don't remember the name of it but it's the size (and appearance from the street) as a convenience store. They have three or four varieties of miso, including light I believe. Not the biggest selection or the most fantastic shopping experience, but perhaps the location is better for you and worth a try.
Have you seen South River miso in local stores at all? I picked some up at Dave's Fresh Pasta in Davis, but I'm guessing Harvest Co-op might carry this. And if not, you can order it online! Local miso! What could be better?
