Cold Storage’s K-Food Fair, Seoul Delicious 2019 is currently ongoing where fans of all things Korean can head down to the nearest Cold Storage mart to shop for goodies specially imported from the land of Korea. On 28 September, the opening ceremony took place at the atrium of Great World City, which was welcomed by Guest of Honour; His Excellency Mr Ahn Young-jip, Ambassador of the Republic of Korea.
The ceremony kicked off with a ceremonial mixing of a Giant Bibimbap bowl, inviting members of the public to have a taste of the Korean mixed rice while they shopped at the fair.
This was followed by a K-pop cover dance performance, as well as a friendly cook-off between Celebrity Chef Park Joon Woo and MasterChef Singapore’s first runner-up Gen Lee.
The K-Food fair at Cold Storage features an extensive range of products, including popular Korean snacks, condiments, fresh produce, fresh seafood, and so many more variety of goodies that’s bound to leave everyone spoilt for choices.
We picked out 10 items that will go into the basket right away:
1) Yangban Rice Porridge (Abalone/Tuna)
This is legit one of the best instant porridges we ever had in Korea’s convenience stores.
2) Soft Beancurd / Soybean Paste Stew Mix
Tried the soft beancurd stew and it actually tasted similar to what they sell in restaurants. For sure we’re going to be stocking up this.
3) Dongwon Real Crabs (Original/Lobster)
You know it’s gonna be good when lots of your Korean friends highly recommend this. 😀
4) Korean Frozen Thawed / Boiled Abalone

The fresh clams were fished and imported to Singapore in under 48 hours! There are also other types of clams to choose from, like Korea Surf Clams and Baby Clams.
6) Samho Fishcake
7) Tteokbokki in Fish Cake
A delicious combination of Tteokbokki (rice cake) with fish cake!
8) Dongwon Cheese Tteokbokki
