The Korean Torture Part 2

As promised, I am now bringing you "The Korean torture 2". I'm not too sure how useful part one was for anyone, but being able to get the following products might take you one step closer to cooking wholesome Korean food at home. I was at the Korean shop today and the good news is he was not blinded by unhappy shoppers smearing hot chili paste into his eyes yet.

P.S most korean products are interchangeable with Japanese ones and only half the price, so another reason to get to know what is what!!

    Thank you!

    I am glad you find it useful :)
    There is one opposite the Vic market and one on Brunswick St Fitzroy opposite the housing commission. I think there are a few more in the city but I am not sure where.

  4. I was just wondering is there a difference between jap mayo and korean mayo?

    1. They taste the same and the Korean one is half the price :)
