Canadian offers taste of home

We often write about the Underground Grocer in Gwangju, as it’s a great resource for all things foodwise missed from home.

As the only dealer of mac & cheese and turkeys and anything else North American, it’s the one-stop shop for expats looking for a taste of home in Gwangju.

 Meet Michael Simning, a co-owner of the store and an all-around good guy to know in Gwangju as he also works with the local girls orphanage and hosts his own radio program on Gwangju Foreigners Network.

The Underground Grocer was just featured in the Korea Times. Check it out on the web and definitely stop in some time. You won’t be sorry.

    Does he sell sheets? I'm in Gyeongju and I can't find them anywhere. I'm new to South Korea (about a week) and I would welcome any information on the cheapest ways to order some products that they don't sell here, like books, sheets, coconut oil, etc.
