HMart - Snacks & Tteobkbooki!
I woke up with a massive headache yesterday. Oh gawd it was awful. I think it had something to do with the fact that I slept at 5 am ~ Oh the joys of winter break.
On Christmas Day we drove all the way to Port Moody (for no apparent reason ~ it was my Dad's idea) "Let's go on a trip!" On the way back, we passed by Lougheed and decided to go shopping in K Town!! All the malls were closed so we ended up at HMart. We picked up some groceries and snacks, and ravenously tore into them the moment we got home :D
I was actually pretty impressed with the variety of food they had in the food court! They had korean bento boxes, teeobkbooki, japchae, kimbap, and a bunch of made to order dishes!!
My mom made teeokbokki for lunch today (with the ricecakes we bought at Hmart) and I'm eating it as I type this. I have to say, I'm impressed Mom. Tastes pretty legit!!
Here's what we bought!! We also bought some vegetables and fruit, but I'm not going to include that here ;D
Here's a picture of the teeobkbooki my mom made!! Not bad eh?
Japchae, Kimchi, and Omelet Cup Rice $3.99
This was pretty decent and made for a nice snack!! The japchae was nice and sweet, and there was lots of it!! The kimchi was standard; it was really tangy and not too spicy!! The egg omelet resembled a piece of tamago; it was sweet and really fluffy!
Rice Cakes $4.99
Yay for supporting local businesses!
The ricecakes were super yummy! This was our second time buying this brand!! For $5, this was very generously sized. We literally had two plates worth of ricecakes!! The rice cakes themselves are the perfect texture, glutinous and chewy!!
PORK BELLYYYYY...need I say more?!
First time trying this brand!! It's quite nice, but there's definitely better store bought kimchi out there. The kimchi itself is really tangy. I would've preferred if it was a notch spicier!
My mom bought some salted shrimp to incorporate into her dishes!! We're not sure how we're going to use it yet, any ideas guys?
Red Bean Mochi 2 for $4.99
I love MOCHI!!! So much. Loved, loved, loved this! Tasted very homemade, the sweet rice flavour really comes through and the redbean itself isn't too sweet!! I also love how simple the ingredients are (unlike the processed ingredients found in conventional store bought mochi!!) The ingredients are: sweet rice, water, salt, sugar, and red bean!!
HMart has an AMAZING bread section near the food court...*drool*
