Uwajimaya has everything you need to become an Asian chef. The giant grocery store is crammed with over 20,000 delicacies from Japan, China, Korea, Vietnam, Thailand, India, the Philippines, and Indonesia. The meat department offers Asian and American cuts of fresh lamb, duck, all natural beef, pork, poultry, and—yes—even chicken feet. The seafood section's saltwater tank system ensures clams, lobsters, and oysters are fresh no matter the season. Uwajimaya's deli prepares ready-to-eat Asian foods, sans trans-fat oil. The store also bills its selection of Japanese, Korean, and domestic sake as the largest in the Pacific Northwest.
