Korean strawberries are legendary for their incredible sweetness, unbelievable juiciness and so-fragrant-it-almost-seems-artificial aroma. These Strawberries (9,800 Won) completely lived up to the hype, and we had a ball chomping on them. We bought them from the Shinsegae Supermarket, which was stunningly cheap, considering that the ones imported to Singapore cost several times that.
I've always liked walking around a supermarket of any country I visit. It's such an eye-opener to see the kind of food and groceries the countrymen eat on a daily basis. Shinsegae was so cool, there were sample stations at every turn and every few metres. We got to try different types of sausages, vegetables, sushi, beef, pork, mushrooms, kimchi, banchan, and fruits. Generally, Koreans aren't as 'kiasu' like us Singaporeans, so nobody here really takes advantage of such a free-sampling culture.
