I know we are blessed to have access to the commissary....oh the commissary. They mean well don't they? But why don't they ever had cilantro, or limes, (don't get me started on lime-gate!) or cheese that hasn't been frozen and then thawed for our consumption. I know it must be hard to be the commissary, and I am so VERY GRATEFUL for what they do have, but sometimes you just need avocado oil, or good Italian coffee, or galangal, or buffalo mozzarella....
Well, you can get these things and more at the Foreign Food Market in Iteawon.
To get there from post walk out the gas station gate -
Walk down the main street in Itaewon (stay on the right hand side).
Pass Pizza Peel on your right (you should eat here someday!).
Keep walking - you will pass Vatos on your left (you should eat here too!) keep going....
Pass Hamilton hotel on your left - keep going!
When you get to Mr. Kabab on the corner of Itaewon & Usadan-ro, turn RIGHT.
Go a couple of more blocks and you will see Foreign Food Mart on your left hand side.
It looks like this:
They have pretty good selection of Thai, German, Italian, American, and Vietnamese products.
Go ahead and give them a try!
Hey, while we are on the topic of food, does anyone know where I can get fresh 'organic' milk?
Till next time,
