Illinois Japanese Supermarket Open 365 Days A Year Has Huge Food Court
Without a doubt, I can eat only Asian food for the rest of my life. If this Japanese Supermarket was in my backyard, you know I'd be there every day ready for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Mitsuwa Marketplace is a Japanese supermarket that offers a HUGE variety of Japanese restaurants in a super cool food court. They're open 365 days a year and have a grocery store that you can literally spend hours in.
Can I just start with the grocery store? They have ANIME NAILS?! You can buy anime nails for a really good price at Mitsuwa and look like the true anime fan you are!
Based on the last photo you know it's not only a grocery store. This supermarket offers beauty essentials and even hair products. It's also a really good place for Instagram worthy photos from the looks of it!
Now... the food court has some crazy dishes you just gotta try. Look at these huge crispy Korean corn dogs, I've never seen something so beautiful before.
We all know what ramen is right? Well, their vendor, Hokkaido Ramen Santouka, can whip up some delicious bowls for you and your besties.
You can even get variety boxes that have a taste of everything Japan.
Looking for some alcoholic beverages to stock up on? Mitsuwa has what you need!
Bring an appetite! There are so many vendors to choose from, you might just need to sample each one. That's what I plan on doing when I visit for my... first time...
Mitsuwa has these incredible displays of what all their food looks like before you purchase, too. It's like an Ikea but for food!
