Thread: Shopping at HMart?

    Default Shopping at HMart?

    Has anyone walked the aisles of HMart?
    Anyone want to cook something but have no idea how to proceed?
    I'm thinking in particular of the fresh packages of seafood,noodles,
    veggies, paste which look like they would make a stew or soup.

    Stews are a common/popular everyday Korean dish.


    My favorite is Kimchi jjigae:

    there are many more such as this:

    I love Hmart- I wish they had guides to help you figure out what
    everything is! A lot of the time there are demonstrators giving out
    samples, which helps a bit.

    But the samples are typically industrial food products they are trying
    to push. You might want to take a look at my other post in this thread
    for some non-industrial dishes.

    You are right about that- thanks for the links. I'd just like to have
    someone with me to give opinions/info as to what to do with a lot of
    it. But I will stay away from the buckets o'blood!

    Geez, is HMart a chain? I had no idea. I posted a few minutes ago about
    potatoes I picked up there.

    It's really great. The fresh fish is awesome, too.

    Just 'discovered' this place last month. My wife passes it on her way home
    from work, but she is too timid (with food) to go into the place herself. We
    went in together looking for some specific items for a dish I was making and
    ended up staying well over an hour. We left with 4 bags of groceries,
    including some sushi for lunch that day and enough produce to start our own
    store.

    What IS HMart? Where located? What's their claim to fame?
    Thanks. Never heard of 'em.

    Google, them. It'll help if you have someone looking over your shoulder who
    reads Korean. :-)

    Funny- we discovered it about 2 years ago when we were coming home
    "the back way" after work on a Friday. We drove by it a bunch of
    times, and finally my curiousity got the best of me...where are you
    located? I'm in the Seattle area...

    It's a Korean grocery store, and the one I go to is HUGE! This one is
    in Federal Way, WA...

    I'm guessing it's a fairly standard Asian Grocery type of place.

    If you can describe (or link pictures) if a product, I'm happy to help if I
    can tell what it is.

    The easiest way is to pick something you would like to make and then get
    the ingredients for it. You can always ask someone if you are puzzled.
    Once you start doing that you get a pretty good idea what everything you
    might be interested in is.

    they have a lotta, lotta stuff. with condiments and the like, the emphasis
    is on korean items, but there are others. the produce department is
    probably almost as big as my regular grocery, but with more 'exotic'
    vegetables along with the celery and carrots.

    I wish they had information in English on the package or even the
    shelf to tell you what you were looking at! It feels as though
    at 79 Ranch Market in San Diego things were labeled better.

    Also strange is that in some aisles foods are arranged by
    category while in other areas things are arranged by ethnicity.
    It makes things very hard to find.
