Shopping online for Korean ingredients in English is still in its infancy. It can be difficult to find what you need in the quantity you desire for a good price, and Korean fruits and vegetables are often nearly impossible to find. The websites can be difficult to navigate and full of broken English, and the online checkout process can be confusing.
My readers have found these options so far, but let me know if you find any better ones:
|Hmart online||Shipping to 48 US States|
|H&Y Marketplace||Shipping to the US and Korea|
|KOAMart||Shipping to the US|
|Korean Food||Shipping throughout Romania|
|Sous Chef||Shipping to the UK & Europe|
|Starry Asian Market||Shipping to the UK mainland|
More and more Korean ingredient suppliers are selling on Amazon these days. The prices are generally higher than in real Korean grocery stores, and some of them are super-high! But these are some items that I can recommend to people who live far away from Korean grovery stores. See my blog post on how I chose these items.
Click the headings of each item to get full details on what they are and how they can be used in my recipes.
- Essential Korean cooking ingredients
- Fish & seaweed
- Rice, grains, beans & yeast
- Pastes & sweeteners
I couldn't find a good Korean brand of soy sauce that you can use in my recipes, but this Japanese soy sauce is comparable in taste and saltiness.
