Mitsuwa is the largest Asian market on the east coast. Just about the size of your local Hanaford or Shoprite but with the addition of a huge food court holding 5 or more spots to eat authentic Asian fair. Ive been visiting Mitsuwa for a few years now on River Rd in Edgewater to fill my Asian fix. This place is so serious they have a free shuttle bus from Chinatown daily. Whatever you need they have. Japanese toilet paper, Japanese hair dye, Asian soap, Asian Mayo, Asian salt, Asian eggs, anything a regular store would have but you cant read any of the packages. Its so much fun trying to figure out what you are looking at.
As seen on
My fiance and I always pick up some stuff we have never tried before and it is usually a surprise. They have sushi, a bakery, meat, seafood, drinks, Hello Kitty, candy, octopus, crabs, green tea icecream,samples of stuff. The parking lot is usually a mess this place is always packed.
Isles of Saki and beer all Asian of course
But there is 1 thing we always come back for. We drive an hr and a half just for 1 snack. Creamyaki from a booth in the food court. A waffle type dessert filled with creamy pudding. Shaped like fish or with different animals on each side. This is worth the trip alone. SO good and still hot and steaming. I almost forgot to mention they own a few stores outside selling Asian books and Asian stuff. Also a sushi place right on the pier overlooking NYC. This location is so great you can grab a few bites go outside and overlook Manhattan across the Hudson River.
Plastic food you know its authentic
