Yesterday we found ourselves in Bellevue and about to go home, Kit asked me if there was anywhere we should go over there before we left. I looked to see if there were any Asian grocery stores I’d not been to and found a few, but one had a name that stood out. S-Mart. Yeah – if you’re familiar with the film ‘Army Of Darkness,’ you know why this piqued my curiosity. It seemed that Korean grocery stores usually have a letter followed by the word Mart. It was only a matter of time; we have an HMart nearby, and a GMart (formerly KS Mart), and there’s more of them. Well, we decided to shop smart and shop S-Mart. That’s where I found this one – something I’ve never seen before. It always floors me – I’ve been to tons of Asian grocery stores in this area and then whammo – one that has a variety I’ve never seen around here. In fact, I found a few of them. Let’s give it a try!

The noodle block.
A single sachet of soup base.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added egg yolk, crushed red pepper, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, and green onion. Noodles seemed to want to stay together although they came out hydrated well and had a pretty good disposition on the chew. The broth was a kind of beef and mushroom taste – a little different but pretty good. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8829204221295.
