I just made my first foray into a local Asian market (HanKook Market in Sunnyvale, CA). Wow. I was not expecting such a fun and overwhelming experience! I only went in for a couple of things - I needed some dangmyun and beef to make japchae (my first attempt at Korean cooking!) - but I spent about half an hour looking around at all of the stuff they had there. Now I know where to get crockery and chopsticks if I ever need them! Can't wait to go back when I have a little more time and browse some more!
