The smell of steaming Korean cuisine wafting outside K&M Grocery & Deli is irresistible—you just have to find the place first.

Located in a pocket of 106 St. and 99 Ave., the family business has been hiding in plain sight for almost 30 years. But locals who work nearby know it well for its delicious and freshly prepped bulgogi to-go, featuring beef, chicken or pork options for under seven dollars a box.

Just steps from the Matrix Hotel and across from Edmonton’s newly renovated Public Federal Building, owners Jin Jeoung and Sonia Yu see all kinds of people. And they’re constantly surprised how many of them still crave a sweet ice-cream Screamer in the middle of winter. Says Jin, “It’s the most popular item all year.”
