All About H Mart and Asian Groceries in the U.S.

While up in northern VA on Thursday, Jessica and I stopped at the H Mart on Fairfax Blvd.  The store is so much larger than the Asian markets we have here and the selection is amazing.  I don’t purchase fresh meat or fish at our markets because of the bad odor in both areas of the stores.  But H Mart is pristine – no smell in the fish section:

and everything looks great and so clean in the meat department.  They have an entire kimchi/fermented row, a large selection of refrigerated fresh noodles, beautiful produce, etc.  We managed to find the ssamjang that Duvel (eG) suggested trying instead of gochujang.  We got Mr. Kim some spicy instant noodles.  We got some of those cute little mushroom cookies.  We did not buy duck heads:

HMart is a favorite stop, especially the big one in NJ. Near my car dealership and when I get a loaner car once/twice a year I hit TJ's, CooksSupply, Ikea and HMart. 

Next time give a heads-up and I'll list some favorites.

I've been to the HMart in Edison.  Is that the same one?
