The premium lifestyle Korean marketplace, tucked into a corner of Tanglin Mall's basement, has an instant noodles shelf that looks a lot like a library, a food hall selling Korean food, a lifestyle corner and more interesting elements.

Here's what you can find there:

The packs are arranged according to the colour of its packaging, making it an aesthetic backdrop to take photos.

Food hall

Fill your stomach with food from the four stalls -- BoonSik Bar, GOGIPAN, JuMak and Donas 8.

BoonSik Bar -- which means Snack Bar -- sells a variety of Korean street food, including tteokbokki and fried chicken. They also sell traditional Korean beverages like sikhye (sweet rice drink), makgeolli (rice wine) and sujeonggwa (cinnamon punch).

JuMak offers customers a selection of Korean pancakes, including meatball pancakes and mungbean pancakes, as well as jokbal (braised pig trotters).

For those looking to buy Jeju tangerines, Donas 8 sells them from S$16 per kg.

Apart from tangerines, the dessert stall also sells doughnuts, and Korean treats like kkwabaegi (twisted doughnuts).

Lifestyle corner

If that's not up your alley, consider buying merch such as trendy t-shirts, hats and bags from Blue Basket.
