1004 Gourmet is your local Asian marketplace where you can find all the products to cook Asian dishes in your kitchen and enjoy the best items from Asia in your home. In July 2008, 1004 Gourmet founder Dong Chul Shin and Juno Kim decided to open a small grocery shop in The Onyx Tower 1 dedicated to Korean food. Since then, 1004 Gourmet has organically evolved to become the focal point of not just Korean but East Asian products, also imported from Japan, Thailand, Taiwan, and China.
Through our selection of products, our vision is to introduce the food and positive cultures from the Far East to the community in the UAE and the Middle East. We supply many hotels & restaurants as well as local supermarkets such as Carrefour and Choithrams and exports our products to other countries in the region.
We believe that our future depends on the source. We are always in search of new products and work closely with our partners to bring you the best choice from East Asia. In pursuit of fresh ingredients, we import fruits and vegetables by air twice a week so that you can enjoy the same produce the local would be eating in Japan and Korea during that season. In addition to food, we have branched out to bring high-quality non-food products such as Japanese knives, crockery, wet tissues, and baby products.
