Where could I buy some authentic dashi without going to Japantown?
Where could I buy some authentic dashi without going to Japantown? Thanks.
I live in San Jose, most of my local supermarkets sell dashi.
Ajinomoto: Hon Dashi, ~2 oz jar
Kikkoman Memmi, 10-16oz bottles
Shimaya Bonito Flavored Soup Stock, 10 bag box
Shimaya Dashino-moto, 5 bag box
Yamaki Dashi no moto, 5 bag box.
I have also used Knorr's Fish Stock cubes.
Where are you? Try Tokyo fish market on San Pablo in Berkeley just North of Gilman. Ranch 99 in El Cerrito - mostly Chinese food but should have it. the kind that looks like large tea bag is better than the stuff you dump directly in the water. I use HIME brand. Most of the dashi has MSG.
