My friend Shannon lives next to a Super H-Mart, and I get absolutely giddy every time we stop in. It’s a treasure trove of amazing ingredients, beauty products, and even food photography props. You can sit down for a quick meal of bibimbap. Dumpling samples are handed out by the frozen food section. They’re SO GOOD. I love dumplings. Did I mention the beauty section? Sheet masks for DAYS.
This is where I first got my hands on frozen udon noodles. They’re fully cooked; all you have to do is boil some water, thaw them out for a minute and boom. Thick, chewy udon that’s perfect for tossing in soup at the last second or serving with a viscous sauce. I love them.
