In addition to food goodness they have an excellent selection of other items, like chopsticks and bowls and other cool stuff. Also, you can enjoy the Uwajimaya Deli food located in the... More

It goes well beyond asian food and its a perfect store for the foodie. They have some of the best meats and fish. The food court has options for everyone, they also have an asian gift mart which is a fun place to explore. This is a Seattle hidden jem.

Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese ingredients are also carried in great variety. Huge fresh fish and meat market section. Cooked food to take home section, There... More

Uwajimaya village at the International district/chinatown in Seattle had an international food court, groceries, and gifts. The prices were cheaper than other places.
