Hallyu Mart (Pasar Hallyu) is located at the block behind Sarang Restaurant – or behind Guan Hock Lee’s Block, or opposite Taurean CafĂ© in Batu Bersurat.

Now let’s have a look at some of the products at the place – they not only sell food products – but other daily toiletries – but for this post – let’s focus on the food! There will be English wordings on their products to help you understand what they are! Of course – I took pictures of some of the products only – there’s plenty more stuff in Hallyu Korean Mart!
