Before H Mart came to the East Village, there was Sunrise Mart - a second-floor Japanese grocery store on Stuyvesant Street where you can get cookies from Hokkaido, uni, matcha powder, and eight different Kit Kats flavors. We love to walk here and pick up everything from wasabi sesame crackers to a couple of reheatable shumai. If you’re looking for really great Japanese ingredients, this is where you can find them.
