Japanese Groceries From Meijiya Mini-Market (Pulau Tikus)

I just came to know about this Japanese mini-market along Kelawei Road which is situated next to the Mobil petrol station. I thought this would be good information to share around especially for those who get most of their grub from the Japanese section at Cold Storage or Jaya Jusco. Meijiya would be another good alternative the next time you want to shop for your teriyaki sauce.




Meijiya is a chain of mini market from Japan that provides your basic Japanese grocery needs. The one in Penang is extremely popular with the Japanese expatriate community. The mini market has a cold section where you can get anything ranging from imported meat, vegetables, beers to assorted types of ice creams. The other section consists of shelves where you can get your biscuits, chocolates, sauces to your other basic daily necessities.





You will be spoilt for choice as Meikiya provides a good selection of pre-packed food and most importantly - noodles. My wife just loves Japanese noodles. Now that she knows of this place, I'm bracing the fact that we might be having noodles for dinner almost every day soon. Talk about self fulling prophecy.








Prices at Meijiya are higher than what you would have to pay at Cold Storage or at Jaya Jusco. Nonetheless for those Japanophile, places like Meijiya is a shopping paradise and provides a worthwhile experience. Meijiya opens daily from 10am till 9.30pm.

buzzingbee, lingzie, gill gill- I believe there's another Japanese grocery store above Yataimuru in Pulau Tikus. Now you have another interesting option to choose from.

I think there's another one behind Bee Chin Hiang in Pulau Tikus. Mostly frozen stuff.

Speaking about Salmon, I wonder if the ones sold at Tesco is fresh enough? I saw quite a lot of people buying from them.

Havent tried the one at Tesco but the one at Cold Storage is quite good.

The One formerly named Fujiya, above Yataimaru is the same as Meijiya @ Kelawei Rd :-)

I prefer Meijiya than Shin Tai Ma @ Lintang Burma. Products @ Meijiya are cheaper than Jaya JUSCO, around 50 ¢ - 1.00 MYR. Choices are better @ Meijiya.

There are Rumours that Jusco may be @ Paragon. The one I can confirmed is Tesco would be @ Seri Tg Pinang - E & O project.
