Before Ray went to work, I was searching for where I can buy oriental ingridents such as Thai, Indian and Chinese spices. It appeared tht for Thai and Indian ingridents, there was a grocery store in Itaewon. Well, I'm not going back to Itaewon since I have been there almost every week thus far.
I discovered that the highest concentration of Chinese immigrates lives Southeast of Seoul, namely Daerim and Namguro. There are many Chinese grocery stores, markets and restaurants. The weather was so nice and it was about the time for me to explore a new place in Seoul.
