japanese food market

tako Nov 29, 2010 04:05 PM

Hi. I'm new to Montreal, from San Francisco. I'm looking for a market that sells Japanese food items, like katsuobushi, shoyu, wasabi, good short or medium grain rice, ponzu, rice vinegar, mirin, etc. Does anyone have any recommendations? Thanks.

      There is a big Japanese store next to Play it again Sports on Decarie below Sherbrooke a good selection of fresh, canned and frozen goods

        And the other side of it is a Banzai.... Japanese version of Dollarama. The most interesting and fun things to have and behold!

          Thanks for the responses. I just went to the asian store next to Play it again Sports and picked up a whole bunch of stuff!

            There is a korean epicerie where they have a lot of japanese products, I think it's 6151 Sherbrooke West. So far, best in price compared to Ja Mae or Miyamoto and you can find all basics!

          There's a pretty decent Japanese/Korean grocery store on Sherbrooke Ouest, IIRC. I pass it every time I'm on the 105 bus.

            Miyamoto (on Victoria st. in Westmount) is one of the few (or only?) real japanese store in Montreal.

              Only I think. Some of the other pan-Asian stores will also stock Japanese products (or imitations).

              I think our poster wants something more recent than an almost three year old thread. Montreal doesn't have a big Japanese population which, I think, really limits commercial activity. What are the best now, almost 2011?

                The info in that thread is still applicable. Nothing has changed save for the fact that the place on Décarie is now a second location of Jang Teu.
