Where to find Shichimi Togarashi in Boston?

AGM_Cape_Cod Oct 29, 2011 07:07 AM

I have a great recipe for roasted brussel sprouts which calls for this as a garnish.I made them last year without the Shichimi Togarashi and even I (brussel sprouts hater) thought they were good. I want to see what they are like with it. Thanks

    I got mine at the (former) Super 88 - a little hard to find, as you enter the store, right most aisle, on the top shelf...

      Bought it at Cherry Mart recently.

        I'm pretty sure I've seen it at Japan Village Mart in Brookline Village and the Super 88/Hong Kong Supermarket in Allston.

          Yes, I'm fairly certain that I got my bottle at Super 88, although there's some chance that I bought it at Cherry Mart. It comes in wee little bottles - possibly easy to miss. There's usually an array of several different togarashi blends.

            Following up - I happened to find myself shopping at both Japan Village Market and Super 88 yesterday, and saw shichimi togarashi at both.

              I have bottles from Sun Sun and Reliable Market. By the way, Nanami Tougarashi is the same thing, "seven flavor chili pepper".

            I'm pretty sure I'm seen it at Formaggio Kitchen in Cambridge.

              I will have to look again. I have looked at the C Mart and couldn't find it.

                I see these in the japanese markets mentioned, and also in many of the markets in Chinatown (or Kam Man in Quincy) and also at HMart. Wouldn't be surprised if they had them at Lotte in Cambridge too. I guess - really almost every Asian market I've been to.

                  Ebisuya in Medford as well.. its Japanese, but a decent scale asian market would likely have it..

                    I've seen it at Miso Market in Cambridge and would be shocked if they didn't have it at H-Mart.
