Nijiya Market is my favorite Japanese market in my area. I drive up to 30 minutes each way to my closest branch located on Sawtelle Blvd in West LA. There are additional stores in both Southern and Northern California, Hawaii and New York. They carry quality fresh sushi and bento lunches of great variety for a small store of their size.
They also carry fresh fish and meat of high quality, as well as a wide selection of Japanese food staples (rice, noodles, condiments, snacks and sweets), fresh and frozen items and Japanese produce.
The service is always friendly. The area is busy but there is ample parking around and below the building. Prices are reasonable relative to the quality. This is a great market for all Japanese foodie items and also a lovely area for sampling some of the Japanese culture in Los Angeles.
