Are there any authentic asian groceries in Culver City? Or would you suggest going to chinatown LA instead? Thanks!

Mitsuwa on the corner of Venice Blvd and Centinela is an excellent Japanese market. It is technically Los Angeles but very close to Culver City.

Was my thought as well - never been inside, but I pass it daily.

Also correct that is is in City of LA, but extremely close to CC.

That Mitsuwa on Venice is OK. Like most SoCal Japanese markets, the fruit and veggie section is underwhelming and the meat section is slightly overpriced and low in variety.

That Mitsuwa's food court has a Daikokayu, though. Probably the best ramen restaurant on the Westside, and I am not exaggerating about that.

SGV and OC still have the best Asian markets (Chinese, Taiwanese, Japanese, and Korean markets) in SoCal. LA Chinatown's small markets are for the older locals who need to pick up a few things fast--even they go to SGV for real grocery shopping.

East Asian or South Asian?

For South Asia groceries, I'd take a bi-weekly drive down to the Ranch 99 in Gardena and stock up.
