From dazzling sushi to floor-to-ceiling walls of rice crackers, Marukai is a true one-stop-shop. The Japanese grocer carries everything from fresh sashimi to the best waterproof mascara in the world (and has an extensive sake collection to boot), and for just around $10, you can also snag a solid lunch. Their pre-made food section is almost second-to-none, stocked with chicken karaage bentos, expertly packed inari sushi, and sweet, fluffy clouds of tamago. As far as supermarkets go, this could very well be heaven.
