One of the better-stocked international grocery stores in town, this spacious second-floor shop carries a wide range of prepared foods and ingredients from Thailand. Shop for fresh vegetables and tropical fruits, spicy sauces and fermented fish elixirs, fresh herbs and packaged spice mixes, shrimp chips and cookies - it's all here.
At the front of the shop is a section devoted to Thai cookingware and oversized mortar and pestle sets for grinding your own spices. There's also a good selection of magazines and souvenirs from the old country, and freshly prepared desserts.
This book will introduce you to more than twenty of Japan's favorite specialty foods that are less well known abroad, along with a guide to the best places in Tokyo to try them and expert tips on what to order. From Bento.com.
