Master bakers from Korea bake fresh breads – including French baguettes, bagels, mocha buns and other sweet treats – in-house daily. The word Basquia, the company”s name for the bakery section of the store, is derived from one of the master bakers of the past.
Mega Mart is pleased to offer wholesome, freshly prepared meals that will take the stress out of lunch or dinner.
