For fun, Rob and I checked out Costco in a few other countries. It’s always entertaining to see the variety of products for sale and compare to back home. The Korea and Taiwan ones had a kimchi bar.
Stop #1 South Korea -Seoul
Rob and I walked a ways from the metro to get to one of the Seoul Costco stores. Once we were nearby, we could easily follow the line of people carrying wholesale size items to the store.
After wandering awhile inside, Rob started thinking they didn’t sell food. But alas, he just hadn’t found the cartscalator to the lower floor. The food court is located so you can dine between floors. The seafood selection at the Korean store was the best of the three we visited. It was also nice to see all the thinly sliced meats they sell for BBQ, bulgogi or hot pot.
Stop #2 Taiwan – Taipei
The interesting potato chip flavor round-up.
Out of all the Costcos we visited, this one had the most unique food court menu.
We had the seafood pizza (meh) and the peking duck pizza (very tasty)in addition to a massive round of samples, including some cake that unfortunately looked better than it tasted.
We ended up getting a bag of the oyster omelet chips to eat of our forthcoming bike trip.
Stop #3 Japan – Tokyo Suburb
We dropped in here a half hour before closing right after we picked up the campervan. After all, we needed some food for the road trip (and dinner).
You must fill out a Costco international form to shop here if your membership is from abroad.
