Science-fiction and fantasy aficianadi, there's a store for you! The Dragon's Lair shop looks average from the outside, but it's quite MASSIVE.

This business has been functioning for more than a few decades, and the store has been open at its current location for more than a number of years. So far, it is the only Japanese grocery and gift store within the Austin-Round Rock-San Marcos metropolis. For being the only store of its kind in this large capital of the second most populated United State, this mid-sized boutique packs a punch! Everything from frozen meat, to produce, to even hakama shirts (traditional Japanese men's wear) are for sale. Browse the clearance bin at the far end of the store to carefully examine the price tags of the alcohol, as bargains are rampant. - Freddie Obregon

Blink and you might miss the unassuming "Say Hi", while driving through the Lo-Burn IBIZ District. Austin is a city with a lot of neon, so from the outside, this store looks plain. Inside, however, is an explosion of color! Virtually everything evocative of the Far East is represented here: from beautiful noren (Japanese fabric wall dividers) to Chinese shoes for everyone to hard-to-find groceries (such as mirin and canned shark fin's soup). Also, please pay attention to the handwritten signs posted on some of the shelves by select merchandise, since the staff may become upset if what they wrote on there is not followed (e.g. 'Ask for employee assistance with shoes.'). - Freddie Obregon
