    Yesterday my husband and I were walking to the Damen blue line stop when a desperate-sounding young man clutching a dachsund called us over to his car. He was searching for HMart, elaborating unnecessarily that it was the largest Asian supermarket in the Midwest. It seems he had driven 800 miles to visit this mecca, but got a little turned around and ended up in Bucktown instead of Niles. I told him to turn left and drive for ten miles.

    I had thought HMart was on Milwaukee, but found when I got home and checked the internet that it is in fact on Waukegan. Oops. I can't feel too guilty about it, though - who drives 800 miles to go somewhere and fails to write down the address?

    Well, at least you got him within shooting distance of it, right? :mrgreen: Hopefully he stopped again after a while to ask someone else, especially as he got closer and the likelihood of running into someone who knew exactly WHAT h-mart is grew higher.

    Hi,

    Earlier this year, LAZ arranged for a tour of H-Mart for visitors from e-Gullet. Those who participated in the tour were gifted with a jar of Korean fruit tea. Many who attended this program travelled by plane, train and bus, which caused people to give up their tea for anyone interested. As a local, I took several jars to taste.

    Image

    The label indicates you can prepare this as a cold or hot drink. I began with the Honey Black Raspberry Tea, which reminded me of fruit syrup concentrates from Europe. I mixed a few tablespoons into a glass of water to taste. It was a refreshing late summer drink.

    I have recently begun drinking Korean Honey Citron Tea stirred into hot water. I don't taste honey in this. I don't think there is Citron present either, though there is plenty of orange slices. Instead I consider it somewhat runny orange marmalade suitable for drinking, though I could envision spooning over ice cream or pancakes. I favor this an alternative to tea, which lately I have been drinking more than I prefer. Plus I have the bonus of chewing on the orange peel.

    I have not gotten around to trying Honey Jujube Tea, which I have no conception what it will taste like.

    I was at H-Mart the other day looking for this product. I was quite surprised to see a price tag around $9. per kilo jar. This is pretty pricey when you compare it to a liter of European fruit concentrates around $5 the last time I looked. Despite this issue, I thought it was a pretty good product. When I run out of the orange tea, I might use orange marmalade as a substitute. At a minimum, I have inspiration to regard a number of fruit concentrates as warm winter drinks.

    Regards,
    Cathy2

    Has anyone noticed a drop in quality at the Super H in Niles? I was there last Tuesday and there were mouldy noodles in the fresh noodle case. There was also a large bin of blue crabs in the seafood section-- they were not moving and they (or something very nearby) smelled horrible-- and after many years in a molecular biology lab, my sense of smell is not that great anymore. Yikes! Was this an aberration?

    My shopping trips have been gravitating more towards Chicago foods-- I find the prices better.

    Tea, it aint, but it's very tasty.

    Ever since Assi/Lotte opened, they've been going down the tubes slowly. I'd be a little surprised to see how Fresh Farms impacts their sales as well.

    I first tried Korean Honey Citron Tea at my friend's parents' home in Seoul last year. I was hooked. I bought a jar to bring home w/me, and it was a whooping $12 or $15. I can't remember. Last spring, we picked up the one you show pictured for only $6.99 and it was b1g1! I do not detect honey either, but IMHO it is not as sweet as orange marmalade.

    I was driving north from Niles a few weeks ago, stopped at H Mart Thai curry ingredients. AWFUL smell in the fish department, to the point where I left in a hurry. Popped in to Assi, which for some reason didn't impress me when it first opened. Wow, it was so much better! They had lime leaves, fresh water chestnuts, galangal and Thai basil. I bought a ton of other fruits and vegetables and was especially happy to see a freezer full of Korean popsicles in flavors like melon and taro. Nice little selection of shochu and other liquors too. What I didn't notice was the great homemade tofu like at H Mart, but I was in a hurry by that time and may have missed part of the store.

    I've always been skeeved out by the fish section at H Mart anyway. The one at Assi didn't look that great either although it didn't seem actively bad like the one at H Mart. I've never bought fish at either place and don't expect to start.

    That's a shame... $6.99/lb live lobsters, fresh whole hamachi, head-on shrimp for $2.79/lb, live tautog, live fluke, live dungeness... 2lb bags of mussels for $1.99 and THE BEST frozen opilio crab I've ever had (you gotta pick 'em though) for $4.99/lb...

    The problem might be that the head-on shrimp at Fresh Farms are $2/lb, and their fish selection, albeit smaller, looked better kept than HMart's. I do intend to keep shopping there, though - their produce section is better, they've got more Asian goods, and if you go on the right days, their fish is still worth it, especially the live stuff.

    Actually, I was somewhat impressed by the seafood section at Fresh Farms; To my recollection, they had some decent pompano as well.

    Get it while we can, cause once the honeymoon's over, it won't be nearly as nice (a la H-Mart, a la Assi)...

    I've got to be a dissenting voice here. Although I shop more frequently at Assi (it's 10 minutes closer), I still prefer HMart.

    Now mind you, I don't eat much fish, but I still find the shrimp at H better looking than Assi. It might be the lighting, but I find Assi to not seem quite as clean.

    HMart has more depth in what it carries -- more brands of a given thing (especially dumplings) -- but Assi has more breadth: more SE Asian, a better variety of ramen, among other things.

    That does sound great!

    I'm the only fish eater at my house and I just buy small things for myself at Mitsuwa. The quality there went down for a while, in my opinion, but it's been fine lately. However, except for mushrooms, wasabi and a few other things, Mitsuwa doesn't touch those others in the produce area.

    Made my first visit to H-Mart on Saturday and was really impressed. Among other things, I got some great looking rib eyes for only $3.99/lb! Pretty nicely marbled for the price if you ask me.

    Image

    Cooked one of them tonight, seasoned simply with fresh cracked pepper and salt in a screaming hot pan with olive oil and butter. Cooked it just long enough to get a nice crust on both sides. Served it with some salad and blue cheese dressing (Yes, I love onions).

    Does anyone have an opinion on the best day of the week to buy seafood at HMart?

    A friend and I stopped by to check out the fish dept today. We thought about half of the fish products available looked amazingly fresh and beautiful, and half looked old. (I don't mean that individual fish within a type were mixed in age: for example, all the red snapper looked very fresh; all of the catfish looked old).

    My guess is that Friday would be a good day for seafood - when the restaurants will want to stock up, and before the weekend crowds. Just wondering if anyone does know if in fact they get most of their fish and seafood in on a certain day of the week.

    We greatly enjoyed watching a couple of older Korean ladies use tongs to wrestle live Maryland blue crabs ($0.99/lb! because there weren't a whole lot left) away from their brethren and into brown paper bags. The crabs were so beautiful and lively that I wished I had a plan for something to do with them right away. Instead I settled for watching the show.

    Oh, I meant to add that lobsters are now frozen and $4.99/lb.

    A stop at the HMart in Niles has been on my to-do list for a while now, especially since I've been wanting to compare its prices for various pantry supplies with the prices at grocery stores near me. I made a list of things I wanted to get and had already determined that the Garden Fresh Market in Mundelein had easily the best prices among the closest-to-home options (others being Dominicks, Jewel, and Wal-Mart), and the Asian market next to the Yellowfin sushi restaurant in Champaign (across the street from the office). The venerable Am-Ko market in Champaign is still on my list to check out - I used to shop there regularly years ago but haven't been in recently to check on their prices.

    In short, on the basis of price, HMart and Garden Fresh were comparable on on soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, rice wine vinegar, dumpling sauce, miso paste, and udon noodle soup mix, and prices at both were better than at any other place I looked. For me this means that for those pantry things I want at the best price, HMart is worth a stop on the way but I don't need to make a special trip for it.

    Again, based on price only, I was a little surprised that the varieties of ramen I was looking for cost more at HMart than at Garden Fresh. Was also surprised by the comparison of kimchee prices: cabbage kimchee (compared same brand, I'm pretty sure), 16 oz and 32 oz, $3.89 and $5.89 respectively at Garden Fresh, $4.49 and $5.49 at HMart. I bought the 32-oz jar. Greater kimchee variety at HMart, of course; I also bought a 16-oz jar of radish kimchee.

    Of course, on variety, HMart wins hands down in soy sauces, fish sauces, rice wine vinegars, ramens, and udon soup mixes. I was a little surprised to see only three brands of curry mix at HMart (S&H, Vermont, and a brand with all-Japanese labelling, don't know the name, but I've tried it before). I wonder if Mitsuwa carries more curry mixes.

    I know HMart is mostly about the fresh produce and the seafood and the meat, but I wasn't shopping for those at the time. (Also wasn't looking to check out the food court options since it was just an hour to dinnertime.) I did, however, buy a package of frozen sliced pork belly @ $3.59/lb. There seemed to be several different sliced pork belly options, fresh and frozen, varying in amounts of fat, it seemed, at various prices, but I didn't have time to study their differences. The $3.59/lb option was the lowest-priced one.

    2) an H-Mart eco bag (reusable grocery bag)

    I got mine this evening at Niles, mgr a customer service hadn't even seen the promo, so I had to wait until the eco bags were brought out from the storeroom.

    The ChocoPie I didn't like but the eco grocery bag is quite a nice one and just in time, I needed another one.

    Hi,

    For Mother's Day, we are having Korean at home.

    For starters, we will have a Korean seafood pancake, an itch I have wanted to satisfy since reading Jazzfood's recent article.

    For the main, we will have bulgogi. We might cook this over a Weber chimney fire on the patio. However, my friend Helen asked a great question of the demonstration lady at H-Mart, "How do you cook your bulgogi in a frying pan?" The woman explained initially the meat releases a lot of liquid and the meat grays. If you are persistent over a high heat, the water evaporates and the meat browns nicely.

    I will admit everything she said sounded quite sound to my experience. Yet I was pulling it off the stove too early.

    After reviewing all the panchan, I went back to the vegetable market to pick up a few more vegetables: watercress, Korean radish, Chinese chives, sprouted mung beans and red lettuce.

    A Korean woman quizzed me on my use of the red lettuce. I explained it was for wrapping bulgogi. She was thrilled. It turns out she is a cooking teacher in Korea. Her niece is graduating with a degree in food science from the University of Illinois. I pulled out a number of ingredients in my cart to discuss if they were the best type for their intended end-use.

    I bought a bag of frozen mixed seafood for making the seafood pancake. I inquired if she would use this product herself. She advised I needed to chop it up smaller than it came in the bag.

    The Korean pancake mix also met with her approval. I decided to start with a mix. When it runs out, I will likely make my own batter. I wanted to see if my family would even like it. If they did not, I knew I could use this up easily.

    As I have long said before, one the favorite aspects of a H-Mart visit are the casual encounters with Korean cooks.

    Regards,
    Cathy2

    I'm guessing it's not a "Super" H-Mart like the one in Niles, more likely to be like the one that opened up at the southwest tip of Northbrook. They've got a great fish counter, some good produce, but nowhere near the depth of *anything* in Niles. Also, the goods are more Korean-focused, much less of the other Asian nationalities that are plentiful in Niles (they had just one dented can of matcha, for instance, but a dozen varieties of barley and corn teas). Still, I'm very happy to have them just 2 miles away.

    Crying in H Mart
    Ever since my mom died, I cry in H Mart. For those of you who don’t know, H Mart is a supermarket chain that specializes in Asian food. The “H” stands for han ah reum, a Korean phrase that roughly translates to “one arm full of groceries.” H Mart is where parachute kids go to get the exact brand of instant noodles that reminds them of home. It’s where Korean families buy rice cakes to make tteokguk, a beef soup that brings in the new year. It’s the only place where you can find a giant vat of peeled garlic, because it’s the only place that truly understands how much garlic you’ll need for the kind of food your people eat. H Mart is freedom from the single-aisle “ethnic” section in regular grocery stores. They don’t prop Goya beans next to bottles of sriracha here.

    Great article, love the imbedded video.
    H Mart, Patels, Sea Food City, great resources which have expanded my cooking and cusine
    The live tanks at H-Mart have stopped my searching for live seafood.
    H-Mart also gets whole Bluefin and you can get a price break on a whole section.

    Re-reading the "Crying at H-Mart" article after the passage of years since the first time I read it, and reading the new article from New York Times, how wonderful!
    Thanks to everyone on this forum for keeping things interesting and lively!

    Last week, I was up in Mesa, AZ. While looking for a certain sporting goods store, I found out that a new H-Mart store opened! That means that there are now five good Asian stores in Phoenix.

    While walking the aisles, I found a package of Mini/King Oyster Mushrooms from Chojeon Farms in Korea. They are a small, dense mushroom that has an excellent flavor and contributes to a lot of dishes. They were $1.99 for 300g fresh.
