Korean Marts in Singapore
We often associate Lee Mart as the Korean mart in Singapore that sells side dishes. When visiting Lee Mart, you’ll often find a side counter selling banchan such as anchovies, kimchi, and braised lotus roots.
You can find a wide array of instant noodles, cup ramyeons, and frozen food to go with your banchan.
There are currently 4 Lee Mart outlets in Singapore: Hillion Mall, Chinatown Point, Suntec City Mall, and Heartland Mall. You can also opt to shop online and get free delivery above purchases of $70.
We often visit Koryo Mart for inspiration for our MiddleClass Tries shoots. Recently, we even saw the infamous Green Onion Cereal in a Koryo Mart! You can expect a wide variety of products such as meal kits and frozen foods.

The Butcher’s Dining
If you’re looking for more sophisticated Korean items, The Butcher’s Dining is your best option. The Korean gourmet butchery and mart has a carefully curated selection of brands that are not typically found in other Korean marts. This includes items from brands like Myeongin Myeongchon, Hohodang, and WERK Roasters.
They also have premium meat beef and pork cuts such as Oyster Blade, Duroc Pork Collar & more! If you’re looking for Hanwoo in Singapore, you might be out of luck since the export of Korean beef is generally not allowed.
The Butcher’s Dining is located at 593 Havelock Road, and is open from 10:30am to 8pm daily.
This online Korean mart is one of the best places to get lesser-known items such as marinated raw crabs and side dishes.
They also sell a range of products from the Korean brand, Cookat, such as cream-filled rice cakes, dumplings, and even ready-to-eat bakes.
Delivery fee is $7 but free for orders above $80. You can look and browse through their products via their website here.
This particular Korean mart in Ang Mo Kio is linked to Korfe Bakery. Here you can find ready-to-eat meals such as Korean seafood pancakes, soybean stew, and salted egg dumplings from Huluruk Myeon House.

With the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, dining at home might be a safer choice. If you wish to recreate an authentic Korean BBQ at home, you can head down to Seoul Butchery to get some quality meat cuts.
They also sell everything you will need for a mini–Korean BBQ party at home (just make sure to abide by the regulations). From dipping sauce to lettuce wraps, you can get everything you need in one place.
