Time Out says

Behind the row of cashiers at Hankook Supermarket (or HK Market) is a tiny heat lamp-lit shelf stocked with comfort food made fresh every morning: pumpkin and sweet rice porridge, blood sausage, and spicy rice cakes ready to grab and go. It’s the ideal stopover for when you’ve worked late and want something satisfying to eat while catching up on your Netflix queue. Along with those ready-to-eat snacks are packaged single servings of rice, soup and fried fish that make for a hearty and authentic Korean meal. The large box-shaped store takes up a decent-sized lot on Western and 1st, and the ample open parking lot is a bonus. As you leave, make sure to stop at the equally tiny counter bakery in front of the sliding exit doors that boasts one of the best croquettes in town. Just slide open the case and grab the curry-flavored one, and you’ve got a deliciously decadent snack to tide you over on your drive home.
