Korean Grocery Shopping in Singapore

Fellow Singaporean blogger Aini has compiled a very comprehensive list of Korean supermarkets in Singapore.  Compared to a decade again, when there was only Seoul Plaza, Shine Supermarket, Koreana Trading and Solmart, there are so many more supermarkets that have found their way into Singapore.  I personally shop at Shine Supermarket at Burlington Square and Solmart at Square 2 more often than the others because they are more accessible to me.

  1. Hey Nice and Informative post. Surprisingly, I was not aware about the Korean supermarket in Singapore. Sean

    1. Hi Sean, Korean Supermarket was already in Singapore in early 2000s but they were very low-profile. With the popularity of Korean culture and increase in Korean population here, Korean products have found a foot hold here in Singapore =)

    1. Hi, Korean food products seldom have such labelling... I guess you have to be quite selective when purchasing. =)

  3. Thank you so much for this list! and the link to the other blog! I really miss eating korean street food after my holiday there in December, especially tteokbokki!

  4. Hi came across your blog post as I was searching for korean golden ramen brass pots. Do you perhaps know where I can get it?:) really enjoyed ur post!

    1. Hi, I have seen it at Sol Mart at Sq 2 ... you might want to check out that store. Thanks.

    2. Hi Jos
      What a comprehensive list. Great job. Which Korean supermarket sells the most variety of raw ingredients like chillies for kimchi and bulgogi marinade and has the most reasonable prices?

    3. Hi, you might want to try Lotte supermarket Tg Pagar =)

  5. Hi, very helpful informations... Do you happened to know where can I buy the noodles for black bean paste?..

    1. Hi, that's an interesting question. Have you checked the major Korean supermarkets such as Sol Mart? Cheers!

  6. Hi,
    Does anyone know where to buy Korean Mandarin oranges?

  7. Was thinking of eating army stew for cny, something diff/special. You think the shops will recommend me wat ingredients and also how to prepare? Which shops gt good customer service, speak English

  8. Hey Jos, Great post. Just came back from Seoul yesterday. Had their bulgogi burger at the airport. Now i'm hankering for more. Guess i just have to make my own. I was searching for a place to buy the sauce when i chanced upon your blog. Will be heading to Lotte Mart.
    Thank you
