This little grocery store is exclusively Korean, and carries everything you need to make any of Maangchi’s recipes. The shop is owned by a very polite and helpful couple, the shop is spotless and the food is the very best quality. They carry a number of organic foods including tofu and also have a section of the store dedicated to cooking implements, rice cookers, and even the large pottery crocks used to store Kimchi. I told them about Maangchi’s website and they have “checked it out”, so if you mention it they will be very helpful and enthusiastic. I love this store!

    I love this store! I was on vacation in Madison recently. I offered to cook for friends some of the yummy Maangchi recipes I post photos of. I was happy to find everything I needed to make a gluten-free version of beef Tteokbokki The owners were very friendly and nice too. I will enjoy return visits to the area even more now.

    This store is awesome. I live in Rockford, IL and make a day of going to this store with my hubby and daughter and stocking up on stuff, then we stop at New Seoul for lunch. On my last visit, I brought a long list of items I wanted to get and purchased a rice cooker. The owner was extremely helpful and answered all my questions and suggested products to me. I didn’t feel like he thought I was a “poser” at all (I’m Caucasian). Can’t wait for our next visit!
