I love Korean food and seek out Korean stores where ever I travel. There are many excellent Korean shops in Makati, near our new home in Pasig/Ortigas and even in Davao when I visit the cool Primed staff of NEH Philippines.
My 2 favorite items to buy are Kimchi and Nori Sheets.
I also love other types of seaweed like Kelp.
They make the fabulous Primed Kimbap Wraps.
NEH Philippines cook Devine and I made some for their staff which they loved.
You can also make Primed Korean Quiche with seaweed. Recipe here.
They are easy to make and so very delicious, nutritious and tasty.
I used to buy Soju (Korean spirit made with sweet potato) but am avoiding it for the time being so as to avoid unnecessary sugar spiking alcoholic carbs). My darlings very occasionally get a Korean coffee with milk while I like the black coffee.
In November 2015 I bought some kimchi from Russel and gave him some Primed advise. I was so happy when I saw him 3 months later and he told me that he lost 5 kilos in that time and was feeling more energetic. Very cool.
Besides home-made kimchi they usually stock a nice assortment of fresh vegetables too.
The one item we always search for is 72% dark chocolate. These little balls are fantastic. What are your favorite Korean Primed items?
Lastly, avoid their packet carbage that will make you sick then fat should you consume it. Stick with the Primed principles of just eating real food.
Have fun shopping at your local Korean mart.
