Hanging Out in the Food Court at H-Mart Korean Grocery Store

The brand new H-Mart Korean Grocery Store (1302 Blalock) features a food court with five dining choices. My current two favorites are Sobahn Express and China Factory Mini.

China Factory Mini has my new favorite dish: noodles with black soy bean sauce ($6.00). A combination of stir fried onions and cabbage, chewy noodles and black bean paste, it looks pretty messy but tastes delicious.

My dining companions opted for Sobahn, where they got spicy tofu stew with beef and the classic Korean dish, Bibimbop ($7.00). We also tried the chilli shrimp ($8.00) which was just okay (but I liked the shredded cabbage that came with it).

This is an amazing grocery store (but I'll have more on that in a later post). I would recommend a Saturday lunch visit when the place should be hopping. -- Jay Francis
