I can fully understand your dilemma. Generally I prefer a 1-stop place where I can find everything I want under one roof. Try the Korean Community at Ampang. From the main road leading to Ampang, left is Ampang Point. 1st traffic light turn right then immediately left into the rows of shops. You will find plenty of Korean Restaurants and grocery shops. Beware that most of them don’t or hardly speaks english.
I am in Singapore now and am having a hard time finding a properly stocked k-grocery shop. Unlike in Melbourne, the k-shops there are wonderful. Its almost like they brought the whole of Korea over. lol.
I have been to this outlet quite a few times since it’s relatively the nearest but they really don’t have a lot of stuff and the stuff they have is not consistent. I went so many times before they finally had the rice cakes in but the home made kimchi they sell is delicious. They also did not have the pickled yellow radish that I was looking for to make kimbap.
Also, it’s pretty funny, I wanted to buy the steel rice bowls but it has been weeks and the covers are still not in the shop yet! :D
The service is good though, polite and helpful.
