Kyoto’s Japanese Market ~ Oceanside

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Kyoto’s Japanese Market is tucked away one block off Oceanside Blvd on Greenbrier Dr. in Oceanside. The Market is owned by brother and sister Chris Ray and Shannon Walker. They are the third generation to run the business.

I have fond memories of going here with my Mom for lunch on our walks home from Best Department Store* when I was a kid.

At that time they had a deli counter and I would get my favorite sandwich (which is still one of my favorites to this day and I can credit them for introducing me to it) a Turkey with pepper Jack cheese on sourdough.

* Best was an Old School Oceanside Department store that used to be where Frazier farms is now going in.

They have a nice selection of Japanese food and seasonings.

Green Tea Kit Kats:) I would love to get my hands on some more Citrus Gold Blend or Strawberry ones.

I thought these were the coolest thing when I was a kid. No unwrapping needed just eat the paper. The card board box was horrible tasting but you got stickers.

Sashimi Grade tuna. I forgot to ask where it was sourced from but at the price I’m guessing direct from Japan.

Though they no longer have a deli, they now serve fresh Sushi daily.

Note ~ this picture is off their facebook as I was there just after 10:30 am and Chris was starting prep. for the day’s sushi.
