Nijiya Supermarket

Japanese in Japantown, Fillmore & Pacific Heights

Picnic under the Peace Pagoda with sushi or teriyaki bento boxes fresh from the deli counter, swig Berkeley-brewed Takara Sierra Cold sake from the drinks aisle and have change from a $20 for mango-ice-cream-filled mochi (chewy Japanese cakes with savory or sweet fillings). Tip: by the door, there's a microwave for customers' use.
