Rice wine, Japanese supermarket in London

Written by Marchan August 26th, 2010


London’s Japanese Rice Wine Shop stocks an excellent supply of what you would need to prepare real Japanese dishes in your home along with Japanese beverages and foods that are ready to consume. This shop offers a broad range of products including seaweed, noodles, fish, rice, vegetables, tofu, sake, curry paste and spirits with the convenience of a one-stop supermarket.

The shopkeeper and his employees are Japanese and use their cultural knowledge to purchase high quality Japanese foods, cooking ingredients and drinks for their customers while still charging reasonable rates. If you are looking for United States or Chinese cheap imitations you will probably have to look in another shop. In addition, this shop has a reputation for offering the best bargains in central London and is considered more reasonable than the Japan Centre.

The Japanese Rice Wine Shop in London has a small interior that can be difficult to move around while carrying goods and dodging other shoppers. However, the owners have recently redesigned the store to provide more room for customers in the aisles and for wheelchair access.

The shop also provides an open refrigerator filled with dumplings, sushi along with other delicious treats that are made fresh on a regular basis. Besides offering Japanese items, they sell other kinds of Asian products. It is a good idea to visit the shop in person before deciding what type of food you would like to eat and so you will not miss a chance to experience other Asian delicacies.
