Supported by the loyal patrons and chefs alike who frequent the shop for the wide variety of high-quality cheese and smoked goods, Hans & Gretel has kept its presence in Hannam-dong for almost 2 decades. And it’s no wonder Hans & Gretel continues to do well, without any advertising on its part — the quality of their pastrami and aged Gouda are especially great, always urging you to come back for more. They are also always stocked up on unique items like orange olive oil and everyone’ favorite, Gruyère cheese (trust us — you'll make the best sandwich you’ve ever had). A few of pricey items like truffle balsamic and pickled olives are available in small packaging, which is great when prepping a single meal. No matter how skilled or unskilled you are at cooking, grocery shopping will become a rather enjoyable activity here as the friendly owner help you find the perfect ingredients and even suggest simple yet delicious recipes (and also let you sample many of his delectable selections).
Focusing on providing quality products at a low cost, Hans & Gretel has been refused offers to be set up in mega department stores. And recently, they have moved their location to the newly built I’Park building in Hannam Ogori, where they continue to offer great selections at great prices.
