Where to buy a specific snack in London? 2009/10/17 22:44
London
Hi Everybody!!

I really love japanese snack products but there is one that I really really like by the food manufacturer ''Tohato''.

The name of the snack is ''Osatsu Poteko'' and The Japan Centre in Piccadily Circus used to sell it, but now they no longer do! -_-

Therefore, I'm wondering if anybody knows where I could buy this crisp product from??
I have included a link to the ''Tohato'' website to show you what thw crisp looks like!

By the way, its the fourth product down in the pink packet next to the blue one!!

Arigatou!!

Have you tried the two Japanese stores on Brewer Street? Ithink one is at number 50 and the other is number 82. I don't know if they have them, but worth a try.

Hey RobBeer! thanks for your reply! Do you mean the "Rice Wine" store and the "Arigatou" store? If so, I have been to the "Rice Wine" store and they didn't seem to sell it. I also have tried "Arigatou" and it they only sell food stuffs and not really sweets or snacks.

Hmm...im not sure where else to look! lol do you know of other japanese stores in London??

Arigatou!

Maybe the new Oriental City supermarket at 6 Queensway? This is the relocated Oriental City that used to be in Colindale and was previously the Yaohan Japanese supermarket until the Japanese company went bust in 2006.

Sadly, a many of the Japanese grocery stores I knew have closed down.

It was the Yaohan Japanese supermarket that went bust (parent company in Japan), Oriental City was the replacement company that took over trading at the Colindale location.The property was bought by a property developement company in 2006 and they basically threw all the traders out, including the main Oriental City supermarket. There was a big campaign to save Oriental City, sadly this failed to save the site. Details can be found here:
