JAPANESE

 

Rice is sold everywhere, unsurprisingly, with local supermarkets stocking a wide variety of wild and brown grains. However, you can take things one step further and order from the Japanese supplier, Tawaraya HK(https://www.wakka.com.hk/tawaraya/weborder.aspx). They import Japanese brown rice, radiation free from reputable farms, and refine it to your liking so it tastes very fresh. You can buy  brown, 50% refined, 70% refined, and white. 50% - 70% refined is a little easier on the tummy compared to brown rice yet a lot of the nutrients are still intact. Delivery takes 2-3 days and it's $20 per delivery. COD or you can wire money too. Not everything is in English so you may need to enlist a Japanese friend to help you!
