Lotte Plaza Market

3191 W. Colonial Drive, lotteplaza.com

The Pine Hills area is already home to one of the best hidden treasures for fans of Asian cuisine – the Chinatown Plaza near Kirkman Road – but this year saw the opening of a new branch of Lotte Plaza Market, a Maryland-based Asian grocery store chain that may or may not be owned by the Korean multinational conglomerate Lotte Corporation. In addition to offering a bright, modern take on the international grocery store, Lotte Plaza Market also features a food court that lets you skip all of the hard work in your own kitchen and shop for freshly made Korean, Japanese and Chinese fare – which is great because even we, Publix's biggest suck-ups, get tired of eating nothing but Pub subs all the time.
