Formerly “East-West Oriental Market”

This is another “true Korean Market” with owners who are reported to be Japanese, Korean and Chinese. Reports are that they speak all three languages. I can confirm Korean personally! :O)

Smaller than Chong’s in Coralville, and a little more expensive. Under new ownership recently. Near downtown Iowa City on the University of Iowa Campus area. Best selection of Japanese foods of the three markets in the IC/CR corridor.

I like some of the brands of Korean products that this market carries better than Jojo’s in Cedar Rapids or Chong’s in Coralville.

It is worth checking out this market. The owners are very friendly. Better selection of “Korean Junk Food” than other markets which isn’t at all bad! :O)
