MITSUWA.

Recommended Posts

Always behind the times, I just found out about this place. I plan to take a trip to their NJ location soon.

 

Does anyone else go to this place? Worth a 4 hour trip and $8 GWB toll?

Meh. I just go to Chinatown. BUT, if they carry a selection of Japanese Whisky's I might have to stop by and look.

are you japanese or just intrigued by japanese grocery store novelty?

 

I can't speak for Mitsuwa NJ, but the CA locations I've visited are worthwhile.

i have been to this place!!!! Honestly you can get some really good fresh shit like cakes and stuff like that. And good deals on all asian candy and shit. But most of the shit you can find in good ol NYC china town. BUt i would def. check it out. 4 hours is whack as fuck though.

i love mitsuwa. i used to live literally 1 block away from one...

 

for those who don't know:

its just a japanese super market - which translates to japanese treats, foods, drinks, alcohol, and other misc. items. since this is a japanese market, this also means expensive. like 10 dollars for dove shampoo expensive.

 

the food court is bomb tho.. i love the katsu stall and santoku ramen stall. i'm not sure if the food court has the same food stalls in every mitsuwa, but the food is good nonetheless

 

if u want cheap(er) asian snacks, hit up a korean market.. like shrimp chips at a japanese place (or even a albertsons or safeway) would be like $1.99 for a bag, where at a korean spot would be like 3/$1.50

 

the spot thats near me, has a bunch of random stores, including a big book store - for those who want to get the hella jdm anime fix

when I was on the west coast, for all japanese products this was reversed. Korean stores gave the japanese stuff the ill mark up, Nijiya or Mitsuwa had better prices.

 

I heard there's some small japanese grocery way outside of philly, but I haven't been yet

are the jump off for cheaper prices.. including fresh vegetables and what not.

 

side note: i went to some chinese noodle house in philly (chinatown) where the hand make their noodles. u can watch them make it while eating..twas pretty cool
