Soo much pretty packaging...Soo colourful...and HELLO KITTY SWEETIES!
My local Japanese supermarket is rather handy if i don't get a chance to pop in to Rice wine or The Japan centre in London.
Kewpie mayonnaise, miso paste, noodles, pickled daikon, hi chews and frozen gyoza are all staples on my shopping list. It costs about £5 for a bag of 30 frozen gyoza, which on first glance seems expensive..but if i am willing to pay £4 at Wagamamas for 5, then it works out to be a bargain! They have an extensive fresh fish counter, and make sushi to order. Damn good sushi, and i don't even like sushi that much.
The staff are always very friendly, and it's open til 7pm on a Sunday which just impresses me.
When you want the freshest sushi to eat in the comfort of your own home, this shop - a stone's throw from Norbiton station - is just the thing! No matter what your favourite sushi might be - as long as they have the filling available - they'll make it to order, while you wait.
There's a great choice, from pescatorian delights to creative vegetarian options. The bonus is that you can stand and watch your choice being prepared and get a free sushi-making lesson thrown-in!
If you're unsure of what to choose you can ask for their recommendations, select from the menu or, if you know your stuff, you can create your perfect specimen by adjusting and adapting their listed options.
Prices are reasonable. The individual miso (soup) sachets are convenient and delicious. Most ingredients are available separately, whether you are experienced or experimental and in the mood to make your own japanese foodie delights.
