Japanese Supermarket

Hi,

I just moved to Dallas and am looking for a good place to shop for all of my Japanese food necessities. Is there a place I can go to shop?

Also looking for a good restaurant, not sushi, just good (authentic) Japanese food.

Thanks,

Sasha

The only Japanese store I'm aware of is Shop Minoya in Plano (northwest corner of Independence and Parker). The prices of their sale or marked-down items aren't bad esp. for TX. (The price of their Maruchan yakisoba is the best in town!)

My (Japanese) hairdresser told me Nanami went out of business a few months ago (the owners skipped town). Their prices were very high anyway.

Also, the new Chinese supermarket, Tian Tian, in Chinatown in Richardson has Japanese (and Korean) aisles. They have all kinds/flavors of shoyu--from usukuchi to umakuchi (don't know who'll buy those in DFW!)

Most Chinese stores in DFW are heavy on Vietnamese items and carry few Japanese items.

Also fresh fish (which is hard to find in DFW) is available at Seabose in Carrollton (run by a Japanese who moved from CA). He has a blog in Japanese and tells you what kind of fish and veggies he'll get the following day. Their sushi is also popoular.

As for Japanese restaurants, locals seem to think Sushi Sake is the best, but I wasn't impressed (I've never seen such small sushi in my life!) Some locals also rave about Masami, which we thought was ok (their non-sushi items aren't good at all). Locals say Sushiyama (izakaya) is very authentic, but their sushi isn't the best. We like Genroku, though it's Taiwanese owned and the chefs are Chinese and Monglian. Their saba-no-shioyaki (grilled mackerel) is VERY AUTHENTIC (just like your mom would make at home :-) Their tempura is much better than Masami's (the koromo isn't authentic, but their tempura sauce is very good.) We also like their sushi, esp. salmon. $1/pc on Wed and Sun.

My favorite is The Sushi Place at May Hua, on the NE corner of Coit and Park in Plano. May Hua is a good store for general Asian shopping, plus they have many Japanese items and their prices are good.

The Sushi Place is in a food court inside the building next to the grocery store. The food is good and fresh, and the prices are reasonable. The atmosphere is not great, just a food court. The Sushi Place shares the food court with another Korean restaurant, which is also very good.

We tried Ajisen, the latest addition to Chinatown in Richardson. It's Japanese-owned and their ramen is very authentic.

Their Tonkotsu soup was very good and we finished it all :-)

Just don't try Shoyu Ramen--they have about 4 shoyu-based flavors. It was pretty bad. (Shoyu Ramen is my favorite.)

They also serve yaki udon, donburi(bowls), sushi, bento boxes, etc.

I'm really amazed to find authentic ramen in Dallas! (The ramen at Mr. Wok isn't!!)

Sushiyama is authentic, too, and the food is very good. Their sushi is ok, but it's TINY! (Why is the sushi so small in Dallas?)

I hope you dont mind that I butchered your post :). I joined this forum, actually, to post to this thread about Nanami closing and Seabose being a great place to go instead (less selection, but very nice people and perfect quality sushi and sashimi!). Since it's just down the street, it made a good replacement-- though I miss nanami very much!

I went to Minoya for the first time this week, and just about had a heart attack. what a cool place. There is so much to look at...! I got an egg press and now my hard boiled eggs are shaped like fish. :)

I'm going to Genroku this afternoon to catch their lovely sushi for a dollar (woo!).
