(Woodbine Ave & Steeles Ave E)

J-Town is the largest Japanese shopping mall in Toronto. They sell everything from sushi, groceries, fashionable accessories to cosmetics. They also have small restaurants inside the building that serve fresh food at great prices.

As you know, I don’t cook … but I still enjoy grocery shopping here at Sakana-ya and Heisei Mart. If you’re a sushi lover, I highly recommend you pick up a sushi platter. What I like to do is pick up a package of freshly imported seaweed (comes with sauce) from Japan, sushi/sashimi (i.e. uni, salmon roe) and grilled squid  for dinner (see photo). Not only is it delicious but an incredibly healthy choice. There are many other varieties of sushi/sashimi or cooked items available to choose from as well. For dessert, stop by the bakery. You’ll find a wide variety of cakes and pastries displayed. The challenge is to decide on which ones to try.

• Sushi/sashimi platter
• Uni in its shell (if you love sea urchin)
• Udon noodles
