In the time of grocery delivery apps and Amazon Prime, it’s hard to get excited about going to the supermarket. Now that Mitsuwa Marketplace has made its debut, though, don’t be surprised if you get an urge to actually leave the house to buy food.

Announced via release, Mitsuwa Marketplace will open its first DFW-area store at 100 Legacy Drive this week. The largest supermarket chain in Japan, the Plano outpost of Mitsuwa Marketplace is the first in Texas, joining currently-open locations in California, New Jersey, Illinois, and Hawaii.

In addition to the aisles of Pocky, Kewpie mayo, and a selection of Kobe beef cuts imported from Japan, the new grocery will also be home to a quick-service food court that will serve up a variety of Japanese faves like popular Tokyo-based tempura bowl stall Kaneko Hannosuke and Ramen Santouka.

Mitsuwa Marketplace will officially kick open the doors at 11 a.m. on Friday, April 14.
