Top Gaijin eats or Non-Japanese foods in Tokyo

I found an interesting Chinese grocery shop in the same Shin-Okubo/Okubo area. In the basement they have all the dry goods stuffs. The real find was the sunflower seeds. They have a number of varieties and for an old school sunflower seed junkie, it was nice to find something local. Of course the tastes are a little different than the normal salt flavor back home but I found one brand i really like.

Their website is here in Chinese and Japanese www.kkshop.jp They don't mention clearly about the shop but it's open til midnight. On the 2nd floor they have frozen goods (just stay away from the wan-chan special meat pack :)

Top Gaijin eats or Non-Japanese foods in Tokyo

If you looking some great Vietnamese "banh mi" sandwiches then I highly recommend. I've been going here since they opened in Jan of 2011. The one to get is the ham and liver pate for 500 yen (add avocados for 70 yen extra - goes well with the creaminess of the pate). They make everything themselves, and that ham isn't what you normal see. It's two types of cured ham. I thought the sandwiches I use to get in Seattle were good but this place is excellent.
