That seems like a counter-productive business decision on whomever's part there. It's probably a result of my tech-centric job and age, but I never carry cash anymore. Digital/cards and online banking rule my world at this point.

Interesting...this might be a quicker option when things are busy! It is odd that they have different systems. Thanks for the info!

I noticed this Ramen/Sushi vendor, too, while shopping fruits/veggies. I thought it was odd that there's only one customer there, while the main food court had a loooong line. I thought maybe because food was not as good. Cash only thing wouldn't have deterred me. Did you eat anything there?

The few times I've been in an H-Mart or similar with a food court the process looked quite different. Language was a barrier each time so I was unable to be instructed.
As busy as this new market is I'd prefer to learn first rather than jam up the process and delay every one else. I operate under the assumption that being considerate is appreciated across cultures.

I freely admit when I may be ignorant of something. Doesn't mean I'm stupid though.

From your description I assume that if one wanted dishes from multiple vendors then the orders would be separately rung with several numbers issued?
The order would still be rung up together and have the same number. They would just call it multiple times. Each restaurant has a screen above it as well that shows the number that is ready so even if you can't hear at all you would still be able to tell when your food is ready.

I actually opted for Korean food in the long line, but am interested in checking out the ramen next time. I don't think cash only is a permanent thing, but it looks like they aren't set up with the rest of the system for right now. Either way it might be worth checking out if only to avoid the line and fighting for seats. They had their own seating area.

"Thanks for this, and apologies for my wrong answer."

Appreciate the apologies. Since elsewhere the central cashier had been mentioned your initial response felt a tad...unhelpful. The downside of the written word especially when exchanged with folks we don't know!

OK - back to as we were! :-)

My wife and I went on Tue around 11:00 am and it was not too crowded. The food line started to grow around lunchtime but still not too bad. We had the Korean fried chicken at one stand and a beef Udon soup at another. We both liked H-Mart a lot but overall we prefer the food at Grand Asia. We will probably go to Grand Asia 75% of the time and to H-Mart the rest of the time.
