H-Mart in Koreatown, Los Angeles? Yes.

This location of HMart in the basement of the Madang Mall is the 47th branch nationwide.

For those who don’t know… H Mart is a Korean supermarket chain that had its first store open in 1982 in Woodside, New York. Its markets are known for a full range of grocery items, including fresh seafood, produce and housewares.

Madang’s H-mart had a Sushi Boy stall inside, which has now closed and been replaced by a Korean food stall called KTOWN. The wang mandu (king-size dumplings) are pretty good at $4.99 for six very large pieces; there are kimchi, as well as pork&veggie versions. Latest: shrimp shumai at $3.99

As with other supermarkets in the area, there are Korean women offering food samples throughout the day. This branch though is relatively small and is very, very cramped. It is possibly the tightest Korean supermarket to shop in in Koreatown, arguably equal to or worse than Zion Market on 6th Street and the old Hannam Chain Market World on Olympic Boulevard in terms of being a tight space to shop in.

Usually available at Hmart: Orion and Lotte brands of Chocopie, Pepero, Pretz Samanco ice cream, tofu, apples, bananas, different varieties of goguma (sweet potato), kimchi, dry noodles, banchan to-go, 위생장갑

September 2018: San Miguel Gold Label Mellorine (Filipino Ice Cream) on sale at $4.99 a tub. Flavors include Ube, Sweet Corn, Mangoes & Cream…

San Miguel’s Best of the Philippines Avocado Macchiato (AlDub) 7.99

Tofu bricks: 99 cents each

Organic soymilk in green-tea flavor: 1.99

At least two kinds of dried noodles from the Excellent brand of the Philippines — one is for pancit canton; the other is for bihon. Price is between 2 and 3 dollars.

Asian grocery and food items can be bought on the web from H-Mart’s online store, which has not only Korean, but also foodstuff from other countries such as China, Japan, Thailand, and the Philippines. They once had even Tender Juicy hotdogs on sale.

* Delivery to downtown Los Angeles is available via Instacart, from 9:00 am to 10:00 pm. Prices are the same as in store, and most deliveries can be done within an hour.

Tagline: “The Best of Asia in America. Since 1982.”
