You might have passed in front of Tagawa many times and not even noticed it, as you have to go through something that looks like a garage entrance to get to the small two-floor shop. However, once you venture in, some delicious Japanese treasures await….
- Tasty, affordable bento lunch boxes (between 5 and 9 euros a piece – a really good deal!) to go. (Get there early. On weekdays, they sometimes are sold out before 13h… I sometimes am to blame as I might pick up a few for me, friends, and dinner…)
- Well-priced decent sushi, which you should order in advance and beats any of the fast-food sushi chains (which suspiciously always carry the word “sushi” as part of their shop name… I know they are very popular but to me, it’s not the real thing…). See here for the sushi selection and ordering procedure.
- Their fresh seaweed salad for only a couple of euros and warm, meat-filled bread buns
- Frozen gyoza wraps to make yummy homemade gyoza (Japanese dumplings)
- A good selection of sake
- Besides selling groceries, they also have a [really] tiny section with other Japanese products, including books, tea/home accessories and occasionally handmade items like obis
- You can also order your groceries online and have them delivered within Brussels, or just browse online to see what you might want to get in-store
- Keep an eye on their Facebook page, which they update regularly with information about their new product arrivals
