An Asian market in New Haven County w/ specific items?

Hey, all! I'm brand new here, specifically for this post.

I was wondering if anyone here would know of an Asian market in New Haven Country, CT that sold both mochi and anko products (taiyaki, daifuku...) and bubble tea is definitely a plus.

I've been trying to get out and try these things for a long time, but I had a dream about things I've never tasted, and decided it's about time! Authenticity doesn't matter a whole lot-- there's only so far you can go with pre-packaged foods. I'd like to stay as close to North Haven as possible (New Haven, Hamden, etc.)

    J Mart has mochi and Bubble Tea, I haven't noticed anko products, but you can call and ask.
    J Mart is on Orange St and their number is 203 782 1234.

      I've seen some sad-looking daifuku at Hong Kong Market on Whitney Ave. in New Haven, and assorted mochi products at Jmart. But you'd be better off going to Japanese markets or bakeries in NYC or White Plains to get some fresher stuff. It's really not that far...
