Located in an unassuming storefront on Western Ave., HK Market isn’t much of a looker (we’ll leave that to H Mart - Koreatown Plaza), but if we’ve learned anything from our time in therapy, it’s to never judge a book by its cover. Or whatever. Because in addition to the long rows of fresh produce, pre-made banchan, and excellent kimchi, this Ktown grocery store also serves some of our favorite kimbap around - tightly wrapped balls of rice filled with pickled vegetables, and OK, yes, sometimes American cheese (just trust us), this is the ideal snack for the car ride home.
