Try the bakery!

This Mitsuwa has a good food court, video shop, and the Kinokuniya bookstore is excellent as always. The market has great produce and Japanese grocery items. The highlight though is the bakery inside (Pastry House Hippo) -- absolutely equal to a bakery in Japan. I especially recommend the... read more

This Mitsuwa has a good food court, video shop, and the Kinokuniya bookstore is excellent as always. The market has great produce and Japanese grocery items. The highlight though is the bakery inside (Pastry House Hippo) -- absolutely equal to a bakery in Japan. I especially recommend the custard/pudding, the curry stuffed bread, and cornets. Absolutely delicious!

This place has an excellent Japanese/Asian market a food court with a variety of Japanese, Korean, and Chinese food, as well as a bookstore and a wine shop that specializes in wine/liquor/beer from Asia. Many of the stuff they sell here cannot be found in a smaller Asian market. It is conveniently located close to O'Hare airport, so we come... More

The fish and other meats are fresh. Many hard to find Japanese foods available. Very crowded on weekends, though. We have been going to this store for several years and it has changed a lot through the years. There is no travel agency, no book store, and less food court choices with some as "cash only." The main grocery store... More

So many thing here that you don't find just everywhere. Mostly it's Japanese groceries--interesting fruits and veggies, different cuts of meats, sushi grade seafood. Interestingly, though, it's a mall, so there is a separate bakery, a book store (Japanese merchandise), there are chop sticks, bowls and things like that, and then there is the food court, with lots and lots...

This is a great place to go for Asian food! I use the grocery there often to buy Asian foods that I cannot find in a regular grocery. I also buy their carry out sushi to take home. It's good quality and a lot less expensive than going to a restaurant. I have also eaten in the food court inside... More

Have been going here all my life and still visit a couple times a month! If you are visiting the area, don't miss out! Mitsuwa has a great collection of Japanese groceries that are hard to find anywhere else. They have a wide variety of drinks and snacks as well as fresh ingredients for making your Japanese favorites! They also... More

Such a pleasant experience visiting this place. We stopped in the food court for lunch, ordered the beef chow mien and chicken which was great. The supermarket was well stocked with japanese food. I loved the bakery, everything was displayed nicely - bread, croissants, pastries, cakes and cookies to choose from. The book store is awesome, a huge assortment of... More

Everything Asian and so much more! When you go to the food court (and you need to go) make sure to bring cash! (I don't know why no credit cards, just cash) Food is so good and fresh! The market is wonderful and full of things you never thought existed! Plan a trip out to here you won't be sorry!
