View Full Version : Wondering where's the best place locally to buy seaweed/sushi sheets?

I usually buy it from that Korean market on North Rd & Lougheed, across from the old Big Al's/Island Pets.

Just wondering if anyone has bought the unseasoned, straight seaweed nori sheets from anywhere else that might be a good deal (i.e. TnT, Superstore, etc?)

Prefer to buy the big 50 sheet packs.

Thanks,

Anthony

I saw some big packs at H Mart in Langley a week or so ago. I'm going there tomorrow to buy some so I'll let you know

H Mart Coquitlam is usually where I've been buying mine. I used to buy from Sunrise Market in Chinatown but rarely ever head in that area anymore.

Another type of seaweed to consider is called dulse - it is not roasted so is the best condition to feed to fish. My tangs (and other fish) love it. You can buy it at Saveon Foods and Choices Market. I love it myself...although not all people do!

I get mine from Osaska (glorified T&T) in Park Royal, West Vancouver. I'll look for larger packs when I am there next.

Also interested to try dulse seaweed ...

You should be able to buy Nori/sushi/seaweed at ANY supermarket it is used to make sushi.

I got a 10 sheet pack for $2.79. That'll last me a year I should think

In the past I've purchased nori from Sunset Market on Powell Street and Gore in Chinatown not too far from the old VPD office at 312 Main Street.

It's been awhile but it's about $6 for 50 sheets.

Just came back from H Mart and its now $15.99 for 100 sheets (least expensive /sheet pack). Prices have gone way up since I last bought it. May try Sunrise Market in Chinatown again next time I'm in the area. Just bought the one pack which should last a few months.

Here's an update........

Sunrise sells nori for $$6.79 for 50 sheets (125g)

It was $5 a few years back.

I always thought nori given to fish were processed in a certain way.
Didn't realize you could just feed them the same ones we eat.

I got a 100 sheet package of Hoshi Nori for about $6 bucks and change at the Korean market by The Pet superstore in Langley, I'm sure most Korean/T&T type stores have it.
Just be sure it's non-seasoned dried natural seaweed only.

Laurie, next time you're there can you pick me up a 100 sheet pack please. It's almost $10 cheaper in Langley than what I found in town.

can anyone recommend a brand that doesn't fall apart a few seconds after its put in the tank? I bought some from IGA and it just falls apart into tiny pieces. The tangs swim around and grab them but they make a mess!!!

The nori I buy from Sunrise does not break apart. I use to fold the nori and wrap it around a fishing float which was anchored to a small chunk of live rock.

My tangs loved it. They had lots of fun picking away at it especially when it's moving about with the wave makers.

Keep in mind, there will be pieces which will float around just from the fish tearing at it
