Kuradai Miso – a miso specialist offering carefully selected miso from around Japan
Kuradai Miso is a select shop offering a range of specialty miso pastes and products from the warehouses of miso producers nationwide. In-store they sell over 30 different kinds of miso, each sourced from various producers across Japan. Offering white miso, red miso, salty miso, and sweet miso, at Kuradai Miso you’ll find an abundance of different choices, each with their own unique flavors and aromas.
The reason for Kuradai Miso’s array of regional miso pastes stems from their origins as a miso wholesaler. While they were working on developing products as a wholesaler, Kuradai Miso managed to build relations with many regional miso producers and grow a supplier base that spanned the length of Japan.
As a result, you’re now able to find a range of extraordinary miso pastes, each with the kind of quality innate to local producers.
Surrounding the swaths of regional miso, you’ll find a narrow, modern interior with a sleek design characterized by its destinct use of white and wood grain.
In the middle of Kuradai Miso sits a long refrigerator cabinet, which houses individual cases of various miso pastes. This miso dipping cabinet is carefully managed to ensure that each case of miso maintains the best quality possible. In store, you’ll also find Kuradai Miso’s “Miso Specialists,” shop clerks with profoundly in-depth knowledge of miso. The miso specialists here suggest miso pastes just for you and help you find just what you’re looking for.
One of the great things about Kuradai Miso is that not only can you pick from a huge variety of miso, but you can also purchase it in small 300g containers too.
Although ordinarily people purchase a large tub of miso and use it a little at a time, Kuradai Miso wanted customers to be able to try a variety of different miso and enjoy the unique flavors and differences each paste brought. That’s why they chose to sell such small quantities as well.
At Kuradai Miso, you are also able to taste-test the various specialty miso pastes.
So while you’re there, why not try a few and see if you can’t find one that really sticks with you?
