Say konichiwa to Buranda Village’s hidden gem. Fuji Mart is the centre’s specialist Japanese grocer and is super popular with those who know about it (and now you do too).
On the shelves find all the sauces, seasonings and snacks of your Japanese dreams, from instant curry to miso paste to mirin.
Fuji Mart stocks all these Japanese pantry staples and so much more. Find a wide selection of fresh fruit and vegetables, plus a chilled and frozen foods section too.
If you need thinly sliced, super marbled wagyu beef for a shabu shabu or hot pot, this is the place to buy it.
If you need fresh sea urchin, tuna belly, salmon roe or sashimi-grade scallops for a recipe, Fuji Mart has it!
If you need fermented soy beans or want a gourmet at-home tonkotsu ramen kit, this is the spot to come.
Fuji Mart is also one of the best places in Brisbane to purchase sake, plum wine, yuzu wine and Japanese whisky. The passionate owner sources bottles from Japanese brewers, some that have been producing sake for over 100 years.
The store also stocks Japanese beers and other alcoholic canned beverages.
If you’re a fan of Japanese pottery and ceramics, Fuji Mart stocks a collection of beautiful patterned bowls, plates and petite soy sauce dishes. The sake serving bottles and matching cups would make a stunning gift for a friend (or for yourself!).
There’s also a solid Japanese kitchenware range where you can find specialist tools and items like a tempura pot or a shichirin, which is a gorgeous traditional Japanese grill that runs on binchotan (Japanese charcoal). If you love to eat yakitori skewers, you absolutely need to own one of these and experiment at home.
Whether you’re passionate about cooking Japanese cuisine with specialty ingredients, or just love gyozas and are looking for an easy, mid-week meal from the freezer aisle, Fuji Mart is worth dropping into.
You never know what you’ll find inside, plus it’s always an adventure to buy and try a new mysterious snack or drink.
Fuji Mart is located just outside Woolworths and is open 7 days. Keep an eye out on their social media accounts for weekly and monthly specials here.
