An old, fairly large Korean supermarket on Western Avenue, just south of Beverly Boulevard.
Hannam is an old Korean supermarket known for discounted produce, meats, and liquor like soju. It’s a good place to buy snacks made in Korea. They also carry a few Japanese items. There is an eatery inside called Yanusa. The sign outside that says “Market World” in English. Open seven days a week, from 7:00 am to 12:00 midnight. Pro tip: Try not to shop here on Sunday, when the free-parking lot is madness and the cramped aisles inside are jammed full of shopping carts.
Zion Market is a relatively new but cramped Korean supermarket on the ground floor of the City Center mall on 6th Street. It is open seven days a week from 8:00 am to 12:00 midnight. This is a convenient place to buy fresh fruit, Korean snacks, live seafood, fresh produce, beer, and prepared food to go, such as kimbap. Zion Market has other branches in Buena Park, San Diego, Irvine and Cerritos.
