Proclaiming its multi-ethnic appeal the Korean owned market opened on Thursday, to the tune of a live Mariachi Band and Dancers in Traditional Costume.
Next to the band were about 15 "good luck" standing floral displays that are an Asian tradition when a new business opens.
The party atmosphere continued into the store where the lines were 5 and 7 deep but no one seemed to care.
The huge produce department is extraordinary with no
fewer than five types of "choy", several celery's, herbs galore, cactus paddles, six types of eggplant, colorful pepper selection both hot and sweet, and much more all beautifully presented and ripe. So unlike the products of the Chain grocery that used to be there and at one third the price.
The fish department literally smells of the ocean, that clean salt air aroma and features live fish, whole fish, packaged fresh and frozen as well as shell fish. What a treat.
The meat selections looked excellent and included the usual cuts and several specialty offerings as well as organ meats.
Quality food bargains galore and located next to the two BB&T buildings on Rte 50/Arlington Blvd.
