Washington, DC

17th and U Street, NW

For my fellow fanatics of the Hana Japanese Market. Thanks to a reader for passing on – The “What’s It Like to Run D.C.’s Only Japanese Supermarket?” Edition from Slate:

“For those of us who grew up in Asian supermarkets, consolation takes the form of one vibrant, tiny gem: Hana Japanese Market. Located on the cusp of the U Street Corridor, this bite-sized supermarket bursts at the seams with Asian essentials like sushi-rolling supplies, fresh mochi, and every type of ramen you could imagine.”

Listen to the interview here.

Ed. Note: If you are not a fantatic – don’t listen you will be bored to tears. Open only since 2008, but this store is in my top ten list of things I love about DC. So don’t you freaking dare think about criticizing this interview…
