Peckish at PFD posted that Hmart will be coming to Tigard (99W, south of the 217).

Think Uwajimaya, with a Korean focus.

No evidence on their website:

http://www.hmart.com...rstore_main.asp

However, a Google search produces this:

HMart
10120 SW Hall Blvd, Tigard - (503) 452-3770

And this comes up in the AOL Yellow Pages:

H Mart
503-620-6120 13600 Sw Pacific Hwy, Portland, OR

I'm interested in hearing more about H Mart as it gets closer to opening day. if indeed there will be an opening day in Tigard. That's not too far from my house.

Yup it is the old Haggen location. I drove past it today as I live in the area... i'm super excited now that I don't have to drive all the way to Uwaijimaya for stuff I need.

Another asian grocery store is emerging - the Da Xing seafood market (Hall and 99W)... it's much smaller of course, but they bought the space next door and are starting to stock their shelves with stuff. There's also a small vegie section.

I was there FoodLuvr, just 2 weeks ago, and while it's greatly expanded, I found that it still had a ways to go...though surprisingly, they had a nice selection of quality, fresh herbs. Very convenient. I just wish Pho Binh Minh next door opened before 2pm on a Sunday - Taqueria Sanchez gets all my breakfast business.

Opened today at 11am.

I showed up at noon. Absolutely insane. Wall-to-wall bodies. I would say a good portion of the entire Portland metro area Korean community was here. The checkout lines were 30 carts deep. After 40 minutes I felt a panic attack coming on and needed a dozen Xanax and a defibrillator.

The store? Amazing. Larger than Uwajimaya, and outside of, say, pre-packaged sashimi and sashimi grade seafood, a better selection of most everything. About the size of Fubonn, and their produce section is twice as large. There's a fair amount of traditional American supermarket goods, as well, so it's a one-stop shopping option. Bulk banchan by the pound - about a dozen varieties, and much more in pre-packaged containers by the Korean food counter.

A Chinese food counter, a bakery, a sushi counter, a Korean food counter (bi bimi bap for $5.50). There's a very large language barrier happening here, and after attempting to order some spicy tofu stew for a couple minutes (the Korean food counter is very confusing) I figured I'd come back in a couple weeks once things die down.

I snapped a lot of photos, I'll post them tonight.

I gotta make a field trip down there some time. I expect it to be a zoo, but I'm also a bibimbap fan so I'm kinda conflicted.

So kind of like Grande Foods, but Korean, where there's a good selection of specifically ethnic foods and deli, but maybe not that much more than other places? Uwajimaya is almost all Asian goods, eg. Boohan and Paldo are all Korean foods. So is it just like you took Boohan or Paldo and added on half a Safeway? Or is like twice a Paldo or Boohan with half a Safeway? Or is it more like 3/4 a Safeway, half a Fred Meyer's, and 1.274352 Paldos?

No evidence on their website:

And this comes up in the AOL Yellow Pages:

So which of these Locations is correct?

Looks like a pretty cool store! Lucky Westsiders! I guess the Eastside has FuBonn, though, so I can't complain.

Best regards,

Looks like salt pillars or something. Reminded me of these salt caves that are somewhere in Beaverton that are supposed to help with allergies & asthma.

If I recall correctly, it was 8am to 10pm.

Ducked in yesterday and was nicely pleased with the huge modern supermarket. A few appliances, some large bulk items, a large banchan counter, meat counter and seafood counter. I snagged a copy of the menu from the noodle bar with the intent to translate and post.
