A Fun Trip To the Korean Market

There’s nothing better for Sunday afternoon fun then a trip to my favorite Korean market, Chicago Foods.

Its a great place to:

get good prices on staple items like coconut milk (90 cents a can!)

peruse exotic produce including an extensive selection in varieties of radishes and greens,

and investigate items you’ve never seen before like dang-kwi, chun kung and a variety of other unknown dried roots and fungus.

What are the practical uses of these?

Do you eat it or use it to kill bugs?

Seasoned pig “trotters”, yum!

You can also shop for inexpensive cookware.

My favorite brand, “Cook Help” right next to the Love Home Magic Pan.

(While I was looking at the food, Ira was looking for funny signs)

Sometimes stacked in with the cookware, you’ll find a reasonably priced pair of shoes.

Here’s a slide show of all our pics if you still haven’t gotten enough.
