Japanese cooking can be characterised by its frequent use of selected staple ingredients including fresh fruit and vegetables, soy sauce and mirin rice wine for seasoning, panko breadcrumbs and tempura flour for coating and vinegars and oils for dressing. If you need to stock up on your Japanese cooking essentials or even noodles, snacks and of course confectionary, head to the bright and open aisles in our food hall.
FISH & MEAT
Some of the most well-known dishes in Japanese cuisine, such as sukiyaki, shabu shabu and yakiniku, require the use of thinly sliced meats and fresh seafood. Thinly sliced meat and high grade seafood is readily available in most supermarkets in Japan and now you can enjoy it too. Visit our meat and fish counter where our friendly team will be able to help ensure you have everything you need for your culinary creations.
As any expert in Japanese cuisine will tell you, fresh is always best. This is why Japan Centre Panton Street will feature a large bakery where you can find all our freshly handmade baked goods including melon pans, shoku pan bread loaves and an assortment of mochi.
