- Note: Kumbo dashi is basically fish bullion with kelp. You can buy it without msg if you like, but be sure to get only dashi made in Japan. The Japanese are stricter about food safety than the USA even. I no longer buy ANYTHING food related from China. You can find Japanese cooking products in the Japanese isle of most Asain food markets. This is good. shopping list
