Nijiya Supermarket

Japanese in Japantown, Fillmore & Pacific Heights

Picnic under the Peace Pagoda with reliably fresh sushi or teriyaki bento boxes from Nijiya's deli counter, plus Berkeley-brewed Takara Sierra Cold sake or Hitachino white beer from the drinks aisle – and you'll still have change from $20 for a Japanese candy spree. Grab tropical gummies, matcha (green tea) KitKat and something called "cheese candy". You'll be a food Instagram hero.
