Where can I find Dashi Stock?

I like to make my own miso soup but I can't seem to find any instant dashi granules anywhere. I have been making it with bonito flakes and kombu (the tradiitonal way) but it is expensive and time consuming. I have tried going to several shops (Both supermarkets in Chinatown and a few of the smaller shops, Eden on Parc, the other supermarket across from PA) but I can't seem to find it. I dont like using the packets - i find they are too salty.
Does anyone have a recommendation or a good substitution?

  1. Have you tried Les Douceurs du Marché at Atwater Market?

    1. There's Miyamoto on Victoria, but if you already find that the packets are too salty (even the straight hondashi ones?) then you're better off sucking up the cost and making from scratch. It's a superior product too.

      1. Have you tried Marche Hawaii?

        1. Japanese Korean grocery across the street from Marche Akavan on Sherbrooke.
