Thanks to Chowhound, I found H Mart and was able to make a second visit Saturday evening. Silly me thought 6pm on a Saturday night might be a good time to go. I joined the procession looking for a parking spot which was extra difficult because I was driving my husband's pickup. I was determined, however, to enjoy the food court for the first time before a quick trip around the store.
Question - my timing was great for food samples. There must have been at least 12 stations. How often are these held? I would definitely like to enjoy them on my next visit.
Question - is there ever a time when the store is not crowded?
Thanks to the food sample, I purchased some pork belly to use in some recipe that I may have looked at in the past 6 months. It's in the freezer until I need it. But my question, in general, do you have any meat, poultry or fish that you like to get at this store? Does the fresh chicken taste any better than what is available at my regular supermarket (usually Market Basket)?
I can't believe I came home without buying some kimchee. Do you have a favorite prepared food that you buy from HMart?
Thanks for your help. It's a long way to go so I have to carefully plan my next trip. Was delighted to spot a Trader Joe's nearby, too.
