H Mart Sets Grand Opening In Yonkers; Chain Specializes In Asian Foodsby Carol Reif
H Mart, an American chain headquartered in New Jersey, specializes in Asian foods and live fish and shellfish, but also carries standard supermarket items.
It is shooting for a grand opening on April 13 in the former Pathmark in Highridge Plaza, 1757 Central Park Ave.
This is near Roosevelt High School. There was until recently a relatively small outlet of this chain in Manhattan's "Koreatown" block near Herald Square. I used to buy packages of frozen Korean dumplings there. These are more delicate on the outside and more robust on the inside (even when vegetarian) than wontons or kreplach. I would seldom buy anything else there because most other items were either absolutely expensive or relatively expensive by comparison with the supermarkets in Chinatown.
