E-mart, where I usually buy food and things.
E-mart is no.1 discount store in Korea.
(Is the word right? Do they call it 'discount store'? store like Walmart, Carrefour, etc.)
Worldwide no.1, Walmart used to be no.5, but now they withdrawed from Korea.
Carrefour followed Walmart. They also gave up Korean market.
It is said that the two big stores failed localization.

Ganga - Indian restaurant
I like Indian curry.
Though it is uncommon and quite expensive in Korea.
My favorite Indian restaurant is Ganga.
The first shop opened in Apgujeong-dong, Seoul.
And now there are several branch restaurants.
These photos are taken in the one at Apgujeong-dong.
I like this very much. Eating nan is fun, even without curry. People also eat curry with chawal( ice). I prefer nan to chawal.
It tastes much better than I expected.
There're more than ten sort of chicken curries in Ganga, and this is my favorite one. Cream and butter included make it more soft and delicious.
I was curious what curry tastes like if it contains beans. It's not bad. But previous two curries are better I think.
Tandoori chicken salad
Tandoori chicken is one of the most famous Indian food. Red color and herbs are remarkable.
A little hot, but not to be concerned much. I think Tandoori chicken is better.
Everything's good here.... except the high price.
It usually costs more than 20,000won per person. (about 21 USD)
I hope Indian cusine get more popular in Korea, so there are more of new Indian restaurant which may effect the price.

Eric's New York Steak
The name of restaurant is Eric’s New York Steak. They have cheap lunch courses like pepper steak + soup + bread + salad + coffe (or jasmine tea) at the price of 12,000won (about 13USD). Considering the expensive beef price in Korea and other prices in Seoul, the price is quite good. Since I have not been to New York, I don't know about the taste. I just hope that real New York steak is not very different from this.
