Japanese grocery shop in North Finchley; also has a good fish counter specialising in sushi-grade fish.
Kake visited on a Wednesday afternoon in September 2008. I was mainly looking for bonito flakes, and I was in luck, as they had a couple of sizes of packets in the display outside. They also had loads of other Japanese storecupboard items (miso, dried seaweeds, furikake, noodles, etc) as well as chilled items like tobiko (flying fish roe), ikura (salmon roe), fresh tofu, and fried tofu. The fish counter looked amazing but I wasn't going straight home so I resisted temptation.
