Hello, Korean food lovers. Fancy seeing you here. Now that I have your attention, you'll be pleased to know that following the success of their Quarry Bay location in Taikoo Place, Market Wholesome has opened a new shop in Yau Ma Yei. The Korean grocery store offers a wide variety of food sourced directly from Korea including snacks, drinks, alcohol, frozen foods, ready meals, meats, kimchi, noodles, condiments and much more, to bring Korean flavour – and now some Korean convenience store culture – to Hong Kong.

The new Yau Ma Tei store even has a 'Market Wholesome Bar' which is a self-serve instant noodle (ramyun) machine, so you can cook on the spot and enjoy it immediately – just like you would in a convenience store in Seoul. You can even add kimchi or canned ham (richam) to your choice of noodles thanks to their sets: ramyun with kimchi (starts from $18) or with richam (starts from $24). So pop in for a cheap lunch and quick snack, or shop and take a break for some ramyun when you're stocking up on some K-goodies. 

To celebrate the opening, Market Wholesome is giving members a 10 percent discount. You can become a member by spending over $200 at the Yau Ma Tei store and enjoy the discount immediately. And you'll also get a free box of Dongwon kimchi, one free ice cream or ice cream bar, and a chance to redeem a limited edition Nongshim Shinramyun bowl for $10 while stocks last.

Market Wholesome in Yau Ma Tei is located at Shop G/F, 539 Nathan Road; Opening Hours: Monday to Sunday 10am-10pm.
