    In this other thread Kurt recommended http://www.asiakauf.com for buying ingredients from Germany.

    I’m lucky, I live near Koreatown, but if you’re looking to shop online in the US there is Koa mart http://www.koamart.com which seems to be USA only. Same with Hmart http://www.hmart.com which is Korean and English but the English site has a lot of Korean in it and is pretty confusing.

    I never shopped at any of these, but maybe someone who did can tell us if they’re any good? Or recommend a better one.

    I’ve just found one that delivers only in Milano, Italy. Here http://www.coreano.it/ I thought I’d share since there aren’t that many Korean shops in my country, not that I know of, that is. Hope this helps!

    I’m confused about the olive oil. I know it’s super healthy but I think of olive oil as an Italian oil. Is it a usual ingredient in Korea?

    I’ve order ingredients from Koa mart twice, and I must say that I really like it. There website is so much more easy to navigate than Hmart. I really recommend Koa mart for everyone here in the U.S. =)

    I’ve bought from Koamart and have been very happy with the results. I didn’t buy any perishables from them but stuck to canned goods and tableware. The shipping can sometimes be a little “painful” when compared to the price of the food (sometimes as much as 1/3 of the total price), but they really do a great job packing and a whole set of ceramicware arrived at my house without so much as a hairline split in any of the items though they were packed with heavy canned foods as well.

    hello everyone,

    i live in greece and there aren’t any korean grocery stores.

    other than the german site listed above, does anyone know of other online sites that sell korean/asian food items in europe and ship to greece?

    thank you for your help in advance.

    Anyone knows a good website for Korean products in Canada?

    There are Korean food stores at where I live(Edmonton, Alberta) but they’re far from my place and they don’t have everything I need. Besides I can’t speak Korean.. can’t communicate with them well TT. So if anyone knows a great website please let me know!

    I live in Hull, UK. Can’t seem to find 떡 (tteok) for 떡볶이 (tteokbokki) anywhere nearby or online. Can’t wait for koreafoods.co.uk to shop online. Wish I was near London. If anybody knows somewhere near to buy some, please let me know. Thanks. :)

    I haven’t been to the One Utama outlet but the ones in Ampang seened to have varieties to choose from. I suggest you check out the other stores around there. Some have freshly imported vegetables and frozen food stuffs while others don’t.

    Hmart is a good Asian internet store. I placed my dry-goods order on 1/21/11 and received delivery on 1/28/11 via UPS nicely packaged. You can use PayPal so that was convenient for me. I planned ahead so yesterday I soaked my cabbage yesterday and when I received my hot pepper flakes today from Hmart, I made Kimchi this evening so it's now sitting overnight and I'll have delicious Kimchi to eat tomorrow.
