Australia

Adelaide (South Australia) area

Little Tokyo! Japanese Food, Fashion & Culture
2a Victoria Square, Adelaide SA 5000
(08) 8231 2255
Comments: "A small shop, but stocks a small but varied range of food items, homewares, tableware, DVDs & books. They regularly stock the Urara, Putifresh & Clickety Click bento boxes, but usually only in sets, containing a box, bento bag & chopstick set. They also occasionally have cutters, sauce bottles, onigiri moulds & picks, the range depending what they can import, I suppose! This is the only place in Adelaide that I can reliably find bento supplies. The food range is great - all the items have a ticket on the shelf with both the Japanese & English name, which is a great boon to those who can’t read Japanese! You can get difficult to find items such as sakura denbu and tarako spaghetti sauce. There is a frozen range with croquettes, kamaboko etc, and tofu, noodles etc in the fridge. The staff are quietly helpful, and I’m sure would be happy to advise on how to prepare a particular ingredient." -(alioc)

Comments: "I use the one at Liverpool regularly, They have a decent range of Japanese food items but you will have to often search through the isles for what you want as the staff don’t know the Japanese names of things as the store tends to cater more towards chinese." (Becki)
