Miso Mart (Japanes Market in Porter Square)

Has anyone gone to Miso Mart yet?

I recently found out about the store, but I want to to get a feel for the prices before I make the trip.

If you've been to Miso's and remember some of the prices, can you list a few price ranges for veggies (ie bok choy) and fruit (if they carry it), rice, and sauces (ie tonkatsu sauce)? Thanks

Also, do they sell sashimi there?

    Just saw that there's a pretty similar post, sorry for the repeat (but if you know prices, please list them)

      It's Miso Market. They don't have much, if any, fresh fruit, and only a limited selection of fresh veggies. And no, they don't sell sashimi or sushi. They have an excellent selection of frozen and refrigerated items (I just bought a large tub of miso for $7, if that's helpful) and carry fresh baked goods and onigiri from Japonaise Bakery.

        Miso is Soso.
        I prefer Reliable in Union Square and the Korean market just North of MISO next to Hana Sushi.

          Does the Korean Mart next to Hana's have produce, if so do you know the price range?

            No, they don't.. everything they have is frozen, with some condiments lightly refrigerated. Ebisuya still has the best Japanese produce selection. I like Miso Market's onigiri better than Ebisuya's.
