If you're into Japanese cooking you have to check out Nijiya. They're famous for their organic produce but if you want to make Shabu-Shabu or Sukiyaki at home you will find the best quality meat sliced exactly the way it's supposed to be. They have most of what you're looking for if you're making something of Japanese cuisine, however, their selections are smaller. It is a small market, but you will find most of what you need.

This place is super clean. However, the veggies, meats and seafood selections are pricey. Lots of Japanese and Korean foods to choose from. They stock specialty foods like Sashimi, Shabu Shabu meats, fresh fish, shrimp, lobster, Asian fruits and veggies, Asian pastries and sometimes bento boxes for lunch.
Absolutely everything you need to make Sushi or other awesome seafood dishes. Their seafood is fresh and they carry a wide variety. This market is the cheapest overall for Korean meat and veggies. Great place for cheap Japanese & Korean produce! VISIT SITE
Although Tashkent is no longer in Russia but the capital of another country, Uzbekistan, it was a part of the USSR back in the day, thus we can still call it a Russian store. This is a small store but it is highly specialized with Russian and Uzbekistan foods. There is a small smoked fish counter, a much larger cheese and smoked meats area... lots of frozen dumplings. .. and the rest of the store is filled with produce and imported canned goods. In the back is a small room with a kitchen... serving up fresh baked breads,
They have Latvian Ice Cream. The selection of Eastern European goods is amazing. The prices as very reasonable as well. Great place for all your Russian, Armenian, and some Mediterranean foods. Great for Russian food especially! There is much variety here and good prices. I was really excited to find a great selection of desserts, deli meats, juices, and pickles... if it's Russian, you will find it here with lots of options! If it's Russian, you will find it here with lots of options!
The owners are of Russian descent but the shelves are lined with items from Eastern Europe, and Israel. Russia, Poland, Bulgaria, Latvia, Hungary, you'll find somethin' here. In the refrigerated section, pretty much any combination of beets, potatoes, and cabbage is available. As far as packaged goods, variation is no obstacle, and they have just about everything (or an alternative) to anything you might possibly want from the Motherland.
Great little Lithuanian deli/market that doubles as a neighborhood convenience store. The owners are very friendly and helpful and gave me a guided tour of all the Lithuanian specialty items ranged from mayonnaise, canned goods, sausages, to chocolates. For a quick snack, I highly recommend the Dadu ice cream treat that is prominently advertised.
Great ethnic foods here that are a deal. Good value for anything you buy here. Nice variety of international foods. All kinds of veggies, hard to find greens. Good market with awesome prices for produce. VISIT SITE
Located in the heart of Little Armenia/Pasadena, this is a small, mom and pop Lebanese grocery that features imported foods, fresh meats, juices, and sundry spices and a few household goods that make this a fun ethnic experience.
If you are Turkish , and looking for a local market that carries lots of Turkish groceries, this is the place for you. Half of the store is dedicated to Turkish groceries while the other half is dedicated to Indian/Pakistani groceries. This store has a lot of Turkish brand products and halal meat.
