Okay, I haven't "cheated" yet and reviewed any chains like I see all over the site (lol), but this is a chain in Japan, so it might as well be a standalone, as there are only a handful (I think two or three?) in the States.

I'm sure that Italian food is not exactly the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Japan, but maybe it should be! Their spaghetti with mozzarella and marinara sauce is the best spaghetti I've ever had. It's really rich and unlike anything I've seen in the more authentic Italian places here, which is kind of a welcome change.
But the best part of "Ita-Toma" is their dessert! They have the most awesome cakes! I am fond of the mocha cake myself, which has just the right amount of coffee. They don't always have it though. You can order whole cakes ahead of time for special occasions, and they often have holiday specials (V-Day, Christmas).
This location is inside Mitsuwa Market in the food court, next to St. Honore.

I first heard of this supermarket on T.V. while watching Japanese Dramas with my sisters. (Nice hobby, they are much better than American ones FOSHO) When we finally visited this supermarket, we were seriously in awe. With a passing glance, this could have been a mall. But you would soon notice foods that you may or not have known.

This supermarket specializes in Japanese foods that are critical in Japanese and other Asian recipes, but are not so easily found. Everything is so neatly placed and the aisles are clean and sparkling.

There's even a bookstore and Food court. It's ridiciously cool, it doesn't deserve the title of super market.

It should be called SuperMasterAwesome-market.

The supermarket offers different variety of Asian (mostly Japanese) food, snacks, drinks. In addition, this market also offers small shops like bookstore (where you can find Japanese magazines, comics, CDs, etc), video store, sanrio-like store (where you can find the cutest stationery), and they even have a food court. I love the food court, which offers shops with lots of choices of japanese food.

this is a fun place to visit!

This place is like a little asian hideaway in the middle of busy Costa Mesa. Inside, there is a food court with many delicious options, as well as a grocery section, an authentic foreign bookstore where the friendly cashiers always try to speak Japanese with me (only because I'm asian), and a few other asian gift stores to tickle your fancy. Recommended for a hangout as well as a quaint alternative to your typical food court, bookstore and mall.

This is Japanese Market place with all different stores inside. I love to eat there. Affordable price & good food. But the market itself is kinda expensive even though it is clean place. They mostly carry all the things for Japanese & asians. The bookstore inside is cool though as well as all the eating places.

I love browsing Mitsuwa Marketplace and doing my grocery shopping here. You can find a large selection of Japanese food, vegetables, fruits, meats, and seafood. I like getting the organic chicken here. They have a section with ready-to-eat sushi and other prepared foods. There are also other stands in that Marketplace that sell tea leaves, mochi, pickles, etc. Besides the grocery store, there is also a food court with ramen shops, Italian food, Chinese food, and a bakery. There is also a bookstore, and a store that sells ceramic Japanese dishes, bowls at unbelievable prices. On the weekends, there's also a sweet potato cart outside selling hot baked sweet potatoes.
