The foreign food market in Itaewon has a lot of Indian products. Also check out nicedeli.com for what you need. They have a whole Indian section.

Great link! they have cheese! But not the stuff I'm looking for, but hey, cheese is great.

Maybe I can find shampoo bars instead.

The Foreign Food Mart in Itaewon does not have any of these herbs, last I checked. I was able to get Dabur Amla oil, but it's the mineral-oil based one. I had to mail-order all of these items, but got them with no problems.

iherb.com has shampoo bars, and might have the Indian food as well, though I haven't checked. I get my cereals from them.

Indian / Tibet / Nepal stores -

OPEN 10am ~ 6pm

Dongdaemun Station exit 3

Walk out of exit 3, and walk straight 20 meters past the Woori bank.

Turn left at the pharmacy (which is in front of you) and go another 20 meters straight ahead until you see another pharmacy.

Turn right (You will see "Everest Restaurant") - BIG BLUE sign.

Walk down the alley to your left for 20 meters.

You will see Pashipati Mart which is a Nepal/Indian store.

Next to it there are several Tibet / Nepal / Indian grocery stores and restaurants selling

Aritha Powder, Shikakai Powder, Amla Powder, Soapnuts, Vatika oil Kailash, Tashi, Snowlands, Dunya, Makye Ame, sugarcan juice, buttermilk, lentils, tsampa, Indian cold/flu medicine, Indian corn snacks, Indian whiskey, Indian vicks vapor, etc etc

always check the used by dates - as some of the products may be over the used by date.

p.s. the Everest Restaurant has delicious Nepal/Tibet food! try their Momo or "hot and sour soup" or fried noddles, or naan garlic bread or kingfisher beer - just so delicious.
