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.

You’ll find banchan, moussaka, stockfish, and a whole lot more at these excellent LA grocery stores.
