first bad experience with H-Mart in Burlington
I went shopping to H-Mart first time last evening and among other things, I bought what was labeled: boneless chicken tights. Tonight, I opened the package and discovered that while the meat has skin removed, the bones were left in.
However to make things worse, the meat is inedible because it is spoiled, despite 'sale by date' set for October 4th.
I wrapped the spoiled meat in plastic bag and put it back in the fridge. Tomorrow I am going to take it back to H-Mart. I will let you know how they handle the return.

I expect H-Mart will be even more unhappy than you are. It's the kind of thing that they would have nightmares about (spoiled meat/poultry at a new regional flagship store).
I went there for the first time today, and was disappointed. The prices were higher on dried items than at China Merchandise (one exit north on Rte 128), and the produce was disappointing. I also don't understand why they're duplicating a lot of the products they carry at the Market Basket 100 yards away. On the plus side, the prices and variety of tofu was great, and the food court looked interesting, though I didn't try anything.
One question: was anyone able to find seitan there? I asked a couple of people, and they didn't seem to know what I was talking about.
I brought home some sealed-pack baby back ribs from H-Mart the other day and they were rank! The customer service desk refunded me in full with no questions and apologies. Was it just bad luck, or is this a typical problem with opening weeks at big markets?
Love the food court, though I need to remember to bring my own tea since they just have soda and (free) hot water.
