▇▇▇ Looking for economical do-it-yourself sushi ingredient suppliers ▇▇▇

Thank you for reading this post.

I'm planning to make sushi for my own consumption. I am looking for stores/individuals that sell sushi ingredients at a reasonable price. I find Taro's Fish's ingredients are pricier than Chinese supermarkets sell their final products. Does anyone know any store or individual supplier, preferable in the North York, Scarborough areas that you can recommend?

Thank you in advance!

  1. When you talk about "ingredients," are you referring to the fish, or the accoutrements?

      The OP knows all the major stores from a previous thread, and even one about surimi.

        I'm talking about everything: fish(ready-to-eat sashimi), fish roe, imitation crab meat, etc. Everything ready to serve, almost.

            I've been to the PAT's in Scarborough and they don't have fresh fish.

            Foody's Supermarket at Warden and Bamborough has a sushi counter. They have a guy who supplies them with ready-made stuff. All they have to do is make the rice and place the ingredients on top.

            This is what I'm looking for, ready-made sushi ingredients at a reasonable cost.
