I tried every restaurant in the Mitsuwa Marketplace and they were all delicious! The miso ramen was especially delicious, as was the bibimbap. The ramen noodles were chewy, the broth was flavorful, and the pork belly was so tender it melted in my mouth. If you're going to have ramen or Korean food, you need to bring cash though. The...

Great asian market mostly Japanese fare with som Korean too. The food court is really good and inexpensive too! I had the soy ramen bowl and it did the trick for a tasty lunch. Moving to the area and looking forward to being a regular! Not as huge as the one in Edgewater NJ but cleaner and easier to shop.

If looking for a bit of culture in the suburbs stop by Mitsuwa. Fresh seafood, bargain restaurants and THE place to get Aloe juice at a low cost. It's a bit of everything in one gigantic market.

With most of the offerings imported from Japan, you can fin those unique ingredients to make your Japanese dishes authentic. There are several "fast food" restaurants in the food court which fortunately offer expressive pictures to help... More

This place is very nice. It is typical of many places you'll find overseas. It is a combination of Asian grocery store and food court type restaurants. I was able to buy many fruits and vegetables that you rarely find in American grocers. I sampled dishes from some of the restaurants and the food was great. If you can't travel... More

I went to Mitsuwa with my elder parents with high expectations. We were very hungry and looking forward to having Japanese food. We left very disappointment! The restaurants in the food court are CASH ONLY. The book store in the mall has an ATM, NO CASH available. The grocery store DOES NOT have cash back options after making purchase. My... More
