Foreign food in Kumamoto

Postby Makkotah » Tue Aug 09, 2011 1:15 pm

So the people at my school have been gracious enough to be cooking tons of meals for me, and I kind of want to pay them back with some food from New Mexico. I brought some Green Chile with me but I neglected to bring anything else I'd need to make anything with it. Is it possible to buy flour tortillas in any of the foreign food stores in Kumamoto or am I going to have to MacGuyver that shit?

Yeah there are a few different places. Probably the easiest place to go, since you are new and potentially carless is the big and shiny Lanol on Shimotori, the major covered arcade downtown. They have a mexican shelf on the second floor, along with other overpriced and delicious imports. Where you at? :moneymouth:

I'm in Amakusa, so pretty far. But Kumamoto orientation is next week so I figure it will be the prime time to pick up the ingredients necessary to foreign up the place as it were. Though, if it's going to be quite pricey, maybe it's best to hold off until I get a paycheck. I keep wasting all my money on beer. @_@

There's a small coffee/import shop in Youme-town Hamasen (on R57 between AEON clair and the city centre). The shop's name is Kaldi coffee and is located on the first floor near the food court (http://www.youme-town.com/hamasen/shops/detail/id/185).

Another import shop can be found north of Kumamoto, also near the R57. Premier Cru is the name if I recall it correctly, and they have a wide range of imported beer, wines and food. A bit difficult to find; http://maps.google.com/maps?q=32.814746,130.75543&num=1&sll=32.814851,130.755547&sspn=0.002737,0.006137&ie=UTF8&ll=32.814866,130.755549&spn=0.002714,0.006137&z=18

A-Price stores often have tortillas and a good amount of foreign food. It was the only place I ever found cranberry juice!

It's on Route 3 north of downtown just past the KFC. At that big intersection where the Coca-cola sign is and the Lawson's is, that's the turn. Follow that road and you'll see it on the left. They have good mexican, italian, and other foreign odds and ends.

Just tossing in another vote for A-price. Their tortillas were the cheapest I found in Kumamoto. Plus they had a spam canister the size of a bazooka! There's actually an A-price in Amakusa, though I'm not sure if it has tortillas. Might be worth stopping by when you get a chance:

And there's always The Flying Pig.

I second Scott. A-Price also has coconut milk, peanut butter, and a HUGE bag of pasta that I've always wanted to buy just for fun
