Korean Marts in Kuala Lumpur | 말레이시아 한인마트

We were lucky! When we moved to Kuala Lumpur in Year 2010, Korean marts (한인마트) were blooming in the neighborhood where we stayed. In the neighborhood itself, from existing 4 Korean marts, it has grown up to 9 Korean marts till to-date. 5 in Desa Sri Hartamas and 4 in Mont' Kiara & Solaris Mont' Kiara. If add in the other 6 Korean Marts in Ampang, Total 15 Korean Marts in KL till today.

Overall, almost all those basic Korean food product that generally needed for Korean cooking and living can be found in all Korean Marts above. The only different is each Korean Mart have their own preference range of products and brands which they are selling.

Desa Sri Hartamas 데사스리 하타마스

One of the pioneer Korean Mart in Desa Sri Hartamas that has been operate for more than a decade. I frequent Seoul Mart as most of the items I am looking for can be obtain here - from veggie, meat, kimchi, instant food, snacks, frozen foods, beauty care, cosmetic to various household items. They also selling ready to go food such as kimbap or steam wang-mandu (dumplings), or tteok (sticky rice). Delivery service available for purchase above RM300 (Thanks Soo Hwei for the info).

New Korean mart open around a years ago. The mart name was E-Mart when they first open. Later rename to Lee Mart probably due to copyright issue. Although there are already 3 Korean marts nearby (all are within few hundred meters distance). Lee Mart still have it's regular customers, each time I pass by they do have customer inside. Lee-Mart located same row as 99 speed mart, KFC or next to the Korean living products shop (see no.5).

(5) Kedai Bekalan Hidup & Rumati 생활용품매장

The shop first caught my attention with the "odd" Malay words at the signboard "Kedai Bekalan Hidup & Rumati". Does anyone knows the meaning of Rumati? Anyway, this is a living and life supply shop. The shop is like a mini Namdaemun. You can find all sorts of living supply such as socks, beauty items, toiletries, quilts and mats, kitchen utensils, bowls pots plates, kpop items, even souvenirs here.

Newly added on Oct'16 - Sae Mee Mart have been operating in Ampang for years (Our first visit to Sae Mee Mart, Ampang was Year 2011). They relocated to Desa Sri Hartamas recently, according to the lady owner, Ampang Korean Town has become very quiet compare to last time and it's hard to make profit there nowadays. Therefore they decided to move here for better business. Sae Mee Mart is the only mart that own a Rice Mill machine (next to their shop) and produce fresh Korean Sweet Rice Cakes. We found their kimchi selling pretty cheap and currently there are alot of discount going on worth to check it out. Turn right after SOUL OUT into the shoplots opposite, you can find Sae Mee Mart & it's rice mill shop same row as 7-11.

Suggest you visit K Mart, Kims Mart and Seoul Mart ..which I am very sure they are selling what you looking for. Seoul mart and K Mart selling jajangmyeon ready pack (just need to cook the noodle and preheat the paste and mix it before eat). Btw since u gonna visit town, why not goto HongKongBanjeom for a bowl of authentic Jajjangmyeon? :)

      I used to get it at Seoul Mart, not sure about other Korean Marts .. suggest you give them a call to find out before next visit? Try K-Mart, Kim's Mart at Solaris Mont Kiara or NH Mart at Plaza Mont Kiara. These are the big scale mart that most probably will have it, in my thoughts. Will check out for you if I pay a visit to any of these marts too..

    2. Thank you so much for the reply. I did ask the owner of Seoul Mart but she said they don't have it. She did say she will order it next time, so I will make sure to call them before I make another visit. Thank you for the other suggestions too! This blog has been super helpful <3

    1. Hi Anne, not sure the frozen tteokbokki you meant is ready to eat tteokbokki? You may check out K-Mart, Solaris MK. They do have ready to eat tteokbokki or you may also purchase frozen tteok (frozen rice cake) and the ready made tteokbokki sauce pack and it is very very easy to cook. FYI, most of the mart is not far from each other, all around same neighbourhood -> Desa sri hartamas and Solaris MK. Good luck.
