Brian has missed his comfort foods in the states, like Japanese-style custard crème puffs (choux cream), crème caramel (purin), and many other delicious Japanese treats. As a result of these cravings, he took up baking so that he could have them in his household all the time, and is something that he hopes to bring to the shop in the near future.
In the summer of 2020, Brian started J-Mart Japanese/Asian Grocery as a result of not being able to find his favorite meals and treats, and even hearing the call from other Asians in his community. He created this business in order to introduce many dishes, such as okonomiyaki, sukiyaki, sushi, as well as desserts, to the people of his community because they mean so much to him and his childhood, and wants to extend the joy of discovering and eating international foods to everyone willing to try. It’s what he grew up on and he knows there are others who will benefit from having their comfort foods in their household, too. For more information about our story and how we’re here to provide the same Asian comforts you grew up on or to try something a little more exotic, visit our store or give us a call at 608-269-1574.
