Today I decided to brave the rain & go check out Minnano Japanese Grocery. (Click on the link to find their Facebook page). I honestly went in search of sheet mask(s). I have heard that My Beauty Diary is a great brand so I picked up a few for myself & a friend to try out. I think I will debut these on my Mask Mondays so stay tuned!
The store itself was small so I don’t think I would consider it a grocery store. It seems almost like a tourist hotspot. Minnano was stocked to the brim with merchandise, very clean, & all of the staff were super friendly. I even found myself bowing back out of habit. lol Maybe I have watched one too many k-dramas. It seems to be divided up into a few sections consisting mainly of fresh food (meat mostly), snacks, drinks, oils, cookwear, beauty, & small otaku style collectibles & gifts. I walked out with a bag of cute snacks so hopefully they taste as amazing as they look!
Top row (from left to right) : Black Pearl, Natto, & Rice.
Bottom row: Red Wine, Caviar, & Strawberry Yogurt.
These were on sale for 1 x $1.60 or 3 x $3.99. If anyone has tried this brand out please let me know!
If I had to rate this place I would give it 4 out of 5 stars. I honestly wish it was bigger! I was hoping to stock up on some cooking essentials, but I think I will have to check out some other markets in town. As for the sheet masks I am hoping that I have found my new favorite local shop to splurge at!
