    This is my Asian grocery place. It’s within biking distance of my house. I go here approximately weekly for bulk rice, tofu, noodles, miso, and all the other odds and ends. Yes, the produce section isn’t fantastic, but it’s right across the parking lot to one of the best produce stores in the area (facing the store, it’s in the next parking lot to the right). There’s also an amazing butcher across Telegraph on Joy rd. Basically, if you can’t find what you’re looking for, it’s probably very, very close by, except for maybe a good solid fish place-I’m stumped on that one. That, and the variety of things available make me really like this store. It would be nice if the people working there spoke English, but they’re nice regardless (reading price tags when they’re helpful and memorizing/looking up the characters of what you want will get you far). Planning a trip in the next couple of days to restock on soybeans, noodles, rice, and tofu again because we’re out again-and the price on the tofu is really quite good (which is great for me, because my little kids will only eat tofu “meat”, egg, and chicken meat for protein lately, so we go through a lot of tofu).

    Surprised and sorry to hear WinglessAngel had a bad experience here. I’ve got to say, I’ve shopped here a few times now and have been very happy with the selection. I was able to find all of the fresh ingredients I needed for my (first-ever!) batch of kimchi, and they seem to have a wide selection of spices, noodles, and rices to choose from, at least more than any other store I’ve been able to find in close proximity. I haven’t perused or purchased any seafood there though, so I can’t speak to that. I would recommend this store though! =]

    So an update on our visit to this store. While I can understand a language barrier, (that has no bearing on my review, that is to be expected), I’m sorely disappointed in the quality of produce and seafoods available. I was able to find some nicely sized whole clams in the shells fresh, but I was only able to find decent grouper and red snapper pre frozen and whole, the rest of my fish list, including tuna, was no where to be found. The produce itself was in horrible shape. For the middle of august the produce should be very fresh still and not rotting or wilted. The store setups don’t look hardly at all like the photos and the seafood section, tanks included, were in very poor shape, dirty tanks etc. The produce section was at least half empty. While I would probably still shop there just to see if I can find fresh tuna once in a great while and purchase the frozen grouper and red snapper, the rest was very very disappointing. Though I did find some of the fish I was looking for so it wasn’t an entirely wasted trip. I don’t get to that area of Michigan but on the very rare occasion so I won’t be making a special trip unless I’m within the 12 miles or so I was to it this afternoon.

      It sounds like you are a real seafood lover! You might have better luck at your local fish market, that’s what I usually do. Then you can go there for special Korean ingredients.

      Thanks for your review, I hope the store owner sees this and is inspired to bring better quality ingredients to his store.

      • I wish, we have no reliable fish mongers around where I live. I would have to drive a couple hours just to get to one. I just happened to be in that area that day because I had to drive out of state. It’s not one I would go out of my way to stop at but if I’m close I would just to see if their produce and seafood were in a better state.

    • Hi WinglessAngel,

      My apologies for the late response. I am sorry to hear you didn’t find items/quality you were looking for. I don’t live in the States and like you, I couldn’t find any near by stores at the time I visited last year. I only used the store to purchase my spices and seasonings but I buy my meats and produce back home (I live in the Caribbean). Again, I’m sorry it did not workout.

  4. I’ll be making a stop at this Korean market on Wednesday afternoon (08/16/2017), I’ll leave a review when we get back on how it is. Super excited to stop there. I live away from Michigan now (I grew up in the SE Michigan area) and we have NO Asian markets, much less a Korean one, anywhere near us for at least 2-4 hours. I have to be in the area there on that day so I’m making a pit stop before we have to head back home to late that day. I’m super excited to be able to stop at an Asian market (Korean no less) for the first time in about 7 years (yes, sad but true!)
