parents dream of the day that the kids move out and they finally get the house to themselves. then, in the blink of an eye, it happens and parents don’t know what to do with themselves…what you do is you pack a bag and go visit them in their house-you take up space, eat the groceries, watch all the wrong shows, sleep in their bed and complain a lot. just a thought. i recently went to atlanta to visit alix in her new home town. she and i spent a lot of time wandering the shops and one of the best stops was mega mart. the korean community is huge in atlanta, so are many other ethnic asian communities, and the variety of shops that cater to each community is huge! after visiting a bunch of places, mega mart
made the biggest impression on me and i look forward to going back to shop there and at another similar store, h mart
. between you and me, mega mart has more to offer but h mart has better prices. like tourists in disneyland, we took lots of photos-gotta love the iPhone!
one of the cleanest produce sections i have ever seen and certainly one of the largest as well.
off to one side of the produce section is one of those little walk-in fridge sections that had an amazing selection of noodles, tofu and miso
just look at the different kinds of miso-have you ever seen so many to choose from?
the fresh seafood selection was impressive-so are the prices. amazing what being 8 hours from the gulf can do to prices.
i don’t care what you say, monkfish are ugly. so ugly that they are not at all cute…
grouper-try and find that in nashville
i loved these packages-fish soup kit. all you do is put it in a pot with water and cook-instant fish soup!
providing you like fish soup.
for those of you not likely to purchase a whole fish, no problem. they had the largest selection of cut/cleaned fish i have ever seen in a grocery store.
no trip to the market is complete without checking the bakery case.
the rest of the store looked like this aisle. wide, neat and clean. can’t wait to go back. i will share more of my trip to atlanta-i did plenty of eating there too!
