Japanese markets in/near Andersonville

Gypsy Boy | Apr 3, 2003 01:05 PM

So...I know that there are multiple options for those of you who live in the 'burbs or have your own transportation, but: if you (a) did not own a car and were, therefore, (b) dependent primarily upon public transportation and (c) wanted to find a market that sold Japanese cuts of meat (such as, for example, but not limited to, shabu shabu), where would you go? To put this another way, is there any Japanese market either relatively nearby to me (Andersonville--and no, the Vietnamese/Thai/Chinese markets do not have what we are seeking) or reasonably accessible to public transportation (that won't take the better part of a day to get to...)
PS The bonus would be if they also sold (or were near someone who sold) sakura mochi.
