A great little new addition to the Brisbane cafe/restaurant/Japanese goods scene in the northern suburbs in Brisbane.
Opened in September 2014 in Chermside, Maruwa offers a great selection of Japanese cafe food – for either local dining (limited) or takeaway – including ramen, curry, donburi, gyoza, and some great sushi party platters ( give a days notice for pick-up…)
This small space also stocks a surprisingly-large range of Japanese staple products – soy sauce, Kewpie mayonnaise, Japanese curry sauces, snacks, drinks and a good range of Japanese confectionery, including the famous Japanese Green-Tea Kit Kats.
With the charm of a neighbourhood corner store, the Korean E Mart on Albert Street stocks an array of Asian products and fresh produce. Looking for an obscure Asian sauce concoction? You will find it here.
Our favourite picks: frozen edamame and gyoza in flavours a plenty.
