Galleria Korean Supermarket now open on York Mills

Nelson | Nov 18, 2010 12:07 PM

It's a well-kept secret hidden away in the Hangul-only section of the corporate website, but the excellent Galleria Supermarket from Yonge and Steeles has just opened a new location at 865 York Mills Road. The supermarket is situated at the back of the building, with signage just visible from the western-most side; the main entry, shopping carts, etc. are all hidden behind the main body of the building, but there are some small direction signs along York Mills to help.

Things are a little chaotic in their first week of operation, but all the trademark specialities are on offer: fresh perilla (sesame) leaves, spicy pork bone soup, superbly fresh and reasonably priced salmon and yellowtail sashimi, live eels, marinated bulgogi to cook at home . . . the new location lacks the variety of food stalls of the old, featuring instead a single "canteen" counter and prepared food display where you can order hot prepared foods to eat in or take away (Kimchi dumplings were a winner.)

While seems not yet quite up to the standard of the original, a welcome ethnic addition to the north-east end grocery neighbourhood.
