Yokan in New Jersey?

kholderied Jun 8, 2012 08:27 AM

I have been looking for a good Japanese restaurant in my area that serves yokan. A place near me used to serve it but no longer do, and the only suggestions Yelp has are in NYC. There's an Asian supermarket near my office- I haven't tried them yet- but I'm more interested in finding a restaurant that serves yokan. (And I'd rather not make it myself.)
Anyone know any good places in Central Jersey?

    I saw yokan at Wegmanns but never tried it. I'm sure that it's ok but prob not the best you've ever had

        You don't say where you are in central Jersey but if you're near Somerville try Shumi, which has wonderful sushi. They certainly used to have yokan though I must admit I have not been to Shumi for several years.

          I live in Scotch Plains but work in Middlesex so I'll give Shumi a try. Reviews seem mixed on Yelp but no mention of yokan there.

            If you go, go for the sushi, don't bother with anything else. There was a NY Times review that mentioned the yokan. If I were you, I'd phone Shumi to make sure they have yokan.
