East Asian grocery near east Danforth (Greenwood-Coxwell)?

What's the best place to go for Chinese, Japanese, and Korean supplies if you live in Danforth East (Greenwood-Coxwell area)?

The problem with searching "Asian grocery" on Yelp is that it returns all the South Asian stores on Gerrard, which don't carry miso, dashi, etc.

Walkable/transit-able options are best, but any recommendations are greatly appreciated!

  1. Hmm, Danforth Market at Dawes is West Indian Chinese. They have a lot of different things.

    1. If you are willing to bus it, there's Sunny's it's near the science center, so you grab the don mills bus at pape. About a 15 minute bus ride and they come super frequently. Not sure about their Japanese selection but they do have lots of types of miso.

      1. You can buy what you mentioned at the Big Carrot, but buying there may be more costly than at the other grocery stores. At least it will most likely be organic if that matters to you.

        1. i'd say go to the east end chinatown at broadview/gerrard.

            Or you could go to Pape station and take the 72A bus down to T&T supermarket.

          2. Not surprised that no one has mentioned 'Dragon Supermarket' at the corner of Danforth and Gillard. Never been to a small grocer that was so NOT friendly. I'll go here if I'm desperate, otherwise I'll walk out of the way to Kelly Fruit Mark across from East Lynn or the stores towards Jones.
