Re: Japanese grocery stores in other places

Please can you post the addresses of the ones in Cape Town. Just went to visit the one near Wynberg just to find it'd shut down. Darn.

Re: Japanese grocery stores in other places

I am an American who lived in Osaka for many years, and now for many in Brazil, in Sao Paulo. I cannot live without Japanese food and ingredients, so it's lucky I am here; one of the results of over a 100 years of Japan-Brazil immigration, we have a Japanese neighborhood called Liberdade. It feels like home to me. There I can get a lot of things I need: mochi flour, soba/udon, wasabi, Kikkoman products, Pocky/Pretz, senbei, genmai cha, sauces, sushi rice, etc. The two big grocery stores are Marukai and Casa Bueno.

There's a great bakery called Padaria Itiriki, where I buy anpan and karepan. I can even buy Japanese kitchen tools and pottery in Liberdade; my favorite place is Hime-ya. So many great Japanese restaurants all over the city, too, not just in Liberdade.

I also frequent a store called Towa where I can get other Asian ingredients, like for Thai and Chinese cooking.

For a pseudo-Japanese expat, living in Sao Paulo is a dream.

Re: Japanese grocery stores in other places

I am in Johannesburg and have been searching for Konbu, Mirin, dashi, mizuna leaves, umeboshi, etc, nobody on this forum has mentioned an actual address! please advise! Johannesburg should have something, somewhere! (Chinatown is no good, there is nothing Japanese to be found.)

Re: Japanese grocery stores in other places

Can anyone tell me of an online shop that sells in South Africa?

Or an actual shop somewhere in Durban, South Africa.

Am desperate to find Japanese ingredients - heck even just udon or ramen would be great.
