Holiday Gift Guide

Hand-mixed for Umami Mart by the Oaktown Spice Shop, this trio of Japanese spices is ideal for creating many Japan-inspired dishes.

Our Shichimi Togarashi features black and white sesame seeds, poppy seeds, chili flakes, orange zest, sansho, and nori. Sprinkle it on your ramen, udon, and other noodles, or grilled meats and vegetables.

We created the essence of savoriness with our Umami Salt, an easy to use spice blend. Try it as a rub. We also like it on eggs, fried rice, sandwiches, fried chicken, and pretty much everything else that goes in our mouths. Go gangbusters with glutamates without the MSG! 

Furikake is a rice condiment that is usually sprinkled over piping hot rice in Japan. The combination of ume (Japanese plum) and shiso is timeless, so we created this delightful Ume Shiso Furikake without all the MSG! Enjoy its tart and earthy flavors over freshly steamed rice, vegetables, salads, and tofu. Or how about some onigiri (rice balls)?
