Think Japanese food around New York City, and most of us would first think of sushi, probably in mid-town. But within a 10 minute bus ride from 42nd Street, Edgewater, New Jersey has attracted a growing Japanese population, creating some great food opportunities. Below are are a few pictures I took at the really interesting Mitsuwa Market. Just across the Hudson, it’s a great place to visit. When I went, my first focus was the food court. For $14.00, I had pork cutlet with rice and egg, some pickles, and a salad with a sesame dressing. Not your typical fast meal at a food court. No indigestion or fumes from some greasy paper wrapped gray burger or deep fat fried fries! But the main show is the grocery that is stocked with some great quality food products from Japan, including a huge beer and sake section. Don’t forget to get some gyoza while your shopping or maybe some sushi?
Here’s the address and more details, along with photos.
