American supermarket chain H Mart launched a new location in Austin, Texas that now includes a vibrant Market Eatery that will be implemented in other locations. The Korean food hall concept features a range of vendors and dining experiences, including two restaurant concepts—Sunday BBQ and Sunday Bird—from Korean chef and author Deuki Hong.
Some of the snack vendors on-site sell everything from shaved ice to waffles and bubble tea, as well as famous Korean snack foods and baked goods. At a bar space called 'Let Them Talk,' Market Eatery offers wine, beer and traditional Korean rice wine.
As well as offering a space for on-the-spot eating, H Mart also provides ample store space dedicated to the sale of pre-made items, such as kimchi, kimbap, pajeon savory pancakes and other grab-and-go "K-Sides."
