This was a wonderful store. So sad to see it go. Nothing else like it that I know of in this area. They had so many things that you can't find anywhere else in this area. An the owner an his wife were wonderful. The son did his best and was always kind and helpful.
This was an excellent store for Asian specialities. Unfortunately, the owner retired, and his son kept it open for abt. one year. The store is now closed.
If you are looking for that tough to find ingredient for Asian style cooking, this is the place to go. The owner knows his products and will suggest alternatives, especially Japanese foods. Amazing selection of soba noodles. Fresh produce too (small selection).
This long-time Asian/Dutch grocery store in downtown Menlo Park is no more. The owner's son couldn't make profits operating the small store with high rent and doesn't have sufficient finance to operate an on-line store. It has a Facebook page if anyone wants to run the online store.
Nak's has been in Menlo Park for years; Menlo Park does not have as many Asian and Japanese markets as Santa Clara county does. As such, this very small market serves that "niche" for Menlo Park and surrounding area. For me, its probably a one time visit as there are better Japanese markets closer to where I live.
