Maybe it's the premise of stumbling upon one-of-a-kind food finds, or that of getting to explore other cultures through their different eats-but there's always something thrilling about going into a Korean or Japanese grocery store. You might think you've seen them all, but this relative newcomer is anything but your typical East-Asian supermarket.
Called Go Grill Mart, this Quezon City food store boasts bright pink interiors which are totally worth checking out in and of itself. Take a look:
Go Grill Mart has an extensive selection of Korean and Japanese grocery finds, which include sweet and savory snacks, meats, ready-to-eat sushi, bento boxes, and microwavable meals.
They also deliver around the Metro-just send them a message on their social media accounts to place an order.
As far as safety protocols go, their premises are equipped with a body temperature scanner, an automatic no-touch hand sanitizer dispenser, and air purifiers. Go Grill Mart disinfects their carts after use, and customers and staff are required to wear face masks at all times. For social distancing's stake, only three to four customers are allowed in at a time.
Aside from being a one-stop shop for Korean and Japanese eats, Go Grill Mart also houses a nail-and-lash service. You can visit Go Grill Mart from Mondays to Sundays, 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
