Sept 12th, 2020 - More varieties of seafood arrived in Vancouver!
For the month of September we’re bringing in a few new items!
If you enjoyed our famous Mentaiko 明太子 but can’t share with the kids because it is spicy we now have Tarako 鱈魚子 which is exactly the same thing but non spicy! They are from the same producer and you are guaranteed to get a good product. Not ready to commit to 500g or 1kg? No problem! Starting from next week there will be 100g sample packs available on both products!
