Shishito peppers in brooklyn

kateh Aug 8, 2011 08:48 AM


I am hoping to find a place that sells shishito peppers in brooklyn. I have been making blistered shishitos at home and would love to not have to schlep into the city to buy them at chelsea market or the union sq. farmers' market. I checked Fairway and they don't seem to have them, but I was wondering if anyone knows of an asian bodega somewhere in south brooklyn that might.

    I've been on the same search for a long while. Kept an eye on the Japanese store on North 9th and the Korean owned fruit stand on Manhattan that carried what I need for kimchi. Happy to say I located them in Woodside at the Han Ah Reum. Not Brooklyn but also not city.

      I've purchased them frequently at Midoriya on north 9th in williamsburg (they're sold in small plastic bags). I've also gotten them at a small Japanese grocery in Forest Hills. Some stands at the greenmarket have had them in season too.

        Chompchomp, is that the Japanese Grocery Store on the Eastern end of Austin Street off of Ascan?

        I haven't not seen them in a store recently, though purchased them yesterday at the Cobble Hill or Carrol Garden Green Market.. Whichever is right in front of 153 smith st..
