I love grocery shopping in Tokyo. My local supermarket has the best sushi and tempura (deep fried) aisle, which tops several Japanese restaurants internationally. My go-to favorites include kappamaki (cucumber rolls) and pumpkin, sweet potato tempura. Add some edamame to that and I’m golden.
The snack aisles are pretty epic but that’s easy for me to say who grew up snacking on Japanese shrimp chips and seaweed flavored potato chips.
Raspberry KitKat bars, where else? They also have matcha/green tea flavored KitKats, which I’ve tried and are quite nice.
The chocolate aisle has me drooling at the mere thought. Meji’s almond chocolates and macadamia chocolates are delicious. As are Meji’s meltykiss chocolates (strawberry flavor is my favorite), which live up to their name in the way that they melt in your mouth.
