newish SFV Korean Mall: Galleria Market and Bakery

silence9 | Sep 4, 2004 11:34 AM

Good day... My wife finally pulled me along to the newish Korean Mall called Galeria Market (and an adjacent bakery named Tous Les Jours) at the shopping center on the corner of Devonshire st. and Reseda blvd.. I know someone posted briefly and recently on this place, but I just had to chime in. It's a definite 'WOW' for anyone either experienced in all foodstuffs Korean as well as for neophytes such as myself... Firstly, the place is new and as such is fantastically clean, well-lit, and designed with the shopper in mind. There is a 'food court' consisting of about ten immaculate establishments, each with their own Korean specialties, as well as some overlap of cuisines for a bit of competition. Lots of Korean teens and twenty somethings chowing down and/or hanging out on 'group dates', as well as families with children. I didn't get to eat at the food court, as I was flitting to and fro thru the entire mall. Beyond the food court is the bakery mentioned. Looks loke great Korean, French, and Chinese specialty snacks and baked goods, as well as some higher end baked goods that look like they make their way to fancy restaurants... Then there is a huge grocery section, a small portion of which consists of 'regular' fruits/veggies/meat/fish of a fresh nature. But the real deal is the row upon row of asian and korean products, obsessively (in a good way) laid out for your mind-bogglement. Hundreds of soys, vinegars, dried noodles, cuttlefish; dozens upon dozens of glass jars of kim chee, some bigger than the heads of giants! Every conceivable Korean product -food and non food- for your perusal. I even found a huge 'anime-baby' type of piggy bank stuffed with those infamous juicy fruit gels that were supposedly banned for getting lodged in the gullets of over-enthusiastic children. Banned candies, yea !! Anyway, I do not do this place justice with my scattershot descriptions. Just take a chance and check this place out, and give yourself about 2 hours to go thru the place and have lunch too...
