Does anyone know where I can buy roasted nori seaweed (for snacking on, like healthy chips) in downtown Toronto?

Thanks! :)

    I usually buy the spicy Happy Brand nori at PAT, in Koreatown. It's my favourite snack food. You can find other brands at the Chinese stores in Chinatown, but I haven't tried them.

      Thanks! I've been to PAT before (they have this instant coffee I love) so I'll check it out.

        Sanko is about my last choice for anything. PAT, T&T and other Korean places are preferable.

          Thanks! I find Sanko a bit overpriced but it's got good products.

          I think you can even buy these at loblaws.

          I know costco sells them and I have seen them at all korean or Japanese markets. T&T too.

            I have a Costco membership so I'll check this out. Hopefully there aren't hundreds of sheets! (Costco size lol).

              Not all Costcos have seaweed. If you are north of the city I recommend Galleria on York Mills (west of Don Mills). I always buy the single serving packages, they are sold in packs of 9 or 12 or 16.

                I have purchased it at the costco in markham and by yorkdale. Also in New York (white plains).... I just figured most of them sold it.

            Multiple Organics sells a bunch. They are on Dundas, near Dufferin.
