Hana Asian Market
Shopping carts loaded with dozens of different dry noodles from Japan, Korea, and China roll through the aisles at Hana Asian Market, where shelves hold spices from across Asia and bundles of sushi- and sashimi-grade fresh fish. Each Tuesday and Wednesday, chefs whip up meals such as spicy Korean sandwiches and tacos or grilled Thai eggplant. The market also regularly hosts sushi-making classes that demonstrate proper rolling techniques and give students all the necessary ingredients, sparing them the hassle of ransacking the aquarium in their office lobby.
