This is the main branch of this mega mart, but there are other stores sprinkled throughout the city. Here at M2M you’ll find just about any Japanese ingredient you’re looking for.
A great place to purchase fresh, sashimi grade salmon and tuna, they also carry plenty of frozen staples like shumai, gyoza and steamed buns.
Make sure to check out their made-to-order bar, and their pre-made, packaged foods section that houses sushi and other interesting salads, like candied taro root and wakame (seaweed salad).
