At Fujiya their cooler is always packed with freshly made sushi and bento boxes for food on the run.
The sushi is usually good, but not restaurant quality (or even close). The boxes are much bigger than the price suggests, so if you buy two, then you might have trouble finishing the second. They use a lot of rice and too little meat in the cheap california rolls. Some of the other fish one's are good but can be overwhelming (spicy tuna). I'd reccomend you find a roll you like, and buy one thing and a couple pops and pocky. They sell some crazy cheezies that taste like chocolate and stuff. They've got two eyes on the package in the noodles section. These are very good. They have some imported pops which are expensive but are a nice change from regular sodas. The mayonaise is better I think and they sell cheap tofu deserts.
fujiya's a supermarket. however, they have plenty of take-out boxes for everyone to enjoy. it's also very nice of them to have a microwave at the lobby area for customers to heat their food.
i would say fujiya carries a variety of authentic japanese food. yet to accomodate north american sushi lovers they of course have the famous california, chopped scallop, and spicy tuna rolls. not to mention they carry a variety of fusion rolls as well. the spider roll, and cajun shrimp roll is also one of my favoraites. prices are incredibly good and while you're there you can pick up some really good japanese snacks. their pocky's are usually on sale but before purchasing them, be sure to check out the expiry dates. sometimes they sell the expired ones for an incredible cheap price.
they do a pretty good bakery considering it's such a small shop. japanese are famous for the creamed filled buns, and the ones here are almost as good as the ones at japan. lastly, for dessert they have these rice tea cakes (daifuku) that are tasty and an icecream counter.
I've tried other places that have packaged, take-out sushi, but damn! Fujiya just kicks the crap out of everywhere else. Since it's a corner grocery store, you can find all sorts of stuff you might want for your japanese cravings. The sushi is exceptional. No more? Just ask and they make it on the spot! They're pretty big too and they taste great. The rice is always perfect. If your short on time, and you need a quick snack, drop in by Fujiya's. The deli is AWESOME. Best take-out sushi, plus you might find a little something else along the aisles too. :D
If you want quick, prepackage, fast food sushi, I'd recommend Fujiya. Or, just go for the experience alone! I don't know of any other Japanese supermarkets, but Fujiya can be a lot of fun. It's always busy, but the cashiers keep things moving. You can get anything from dinner to dessert.
