from E-Mart (Garden Five)
-Changgok, Sujeong, Seongnam, Gyeonggi, Republic of Korea-
From our new home in Wirye, the E-Mart at Garden Five (shopping complex) is just 4 km away, on the way to and from the city (still getting used to the idea that we no longer live “in the city”). Not as big or as well-stocked as the flagship E-Mart in Seongsu, which was 3.8 km away from our apartment in Oksu, but sufficiently convenient for general home shopping needs.
One of my favorite things about E-Mart is the ready-to-go sushi boxes in the supermarket.
At the Garden Five branch, the selection of fish seemed less diverse and the pieces were a bit sloppier in construction than what I remember from Seongsu (see for comparison 1.134 Nigirizushi). Otherwise, the sushi was reasonably fresh, tasty enough.
I was reminded of the sushi at our local supermarket in Manila (see 7.280 Salmon Manila Maki).
Our stuff will arrive tomorrow – just one more night sleeping on the floor.
