Hello 'hounds. I've got a recipe that I'd like to try which calls for some Japanese ingredients. I would like to know a good Japanese grocery or two in SF that you've frequented, and know that there will be enough lables in English for me! :) I don't need anything esoteric, just some dashi and mushrooms and the like. It would be a bonus it was somewhere where I could also buy some sake.

Also -- for you Japanese chefs out there -- can you recommend a good sake for cooking? Please remember -- I have zero sake experience, either in drinking or cooking, so something on the general, accesible side would probably help me the most.
