This store carries Tokuhon, which for your laymen out there, translates to "senior citizen crack". I'm kidding, of course. This medicine is like Ben Gay, without the nasty smell. I thought Tokuhon is mostly outlawed in here the mainland. I only see it available at Longs Drug Stores in Hawaii, so I'm delighted I have a new supplier. Oh, I mean "source".
Unfortunately, no tuna poke when I visited. I did find fresh tamarind though, and ankimo monkfish liver - one of the very few places who have this all the time.
Good looking kurobota pork and I also bought a good deal of their plate lunches. Bought scrumptious looking thinly sliced, nicely marbled sukiyaki beef for the ever lazy chef like myself. Marinated those last night in a little mirin, shoyu, fresh organic ginger, organic garlic, organic green onions, brown sugar. I'll write again to let you know how it turned out.
They sell 99 cent enoki mushrooms, great deal and Kohala Kim Chee, made in Honolulu.
Ikura salmon eggs are cheaper than buying at the Russian delis in the Richmond.
What more can I ask for? Maybe just slightly better service. Service with a smile would be nice. I only get this from the Spanish guy behind the sushi counter. He's always nice and courteous.

Suruki is not half bad. They have a great deal of supplies and ok prices on sashimi and such.
The bad thing about them is literally their store hours. I swear, I passed by this place 3x and all occassions, they were closed.
Have GOT to have better hours please.

Family Owned Market with standard for HIGH QUALITY. You can see it in the fish department with their sushi as well as their cooked food section. Their are so many different bento boxes, it will take you days to try each one. Trust me I've tried. They are all freshly made everyday. A little secret for newbies....they go half price at around 5:30 or 6:00pm. Watch out for the other customers trying to take advantage of the great deals. But it's a great time to stock up for lunch/dinner for the next few days. Especially for those who can't cook for squat. The to-go grill next door has awesome teriyaki beef sandwiches and curry too.
