Wondering where/if I can buy some produce like honey, olive oil, vegemite from? I live in Bundang but of course can get to Seoul.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

You can try the Hannam-dong supermarket near Itaewon. Basically there are a few places around there you could buy foreign stuff from.

Also, look here:

Melbournegirl,

I would appreciate it if you could add Tim Tams, and Bundy to that list. I can get XXXX at Home Plus in Yong Tong.

Thanx

You can buy some okay olive oils at the bigger supermarkets like Lotte Mart and E-Mart. There are a couple of brands they carry that you may be familiar with, like Bertolli and Rizzoli.

Another good place for foreign products -- including imported foods, wines, electronics, etc. is Costco. It costs $35 a year for membership (if you don't have a friend who will take you). Membership is unconditionally guaranteed -- you can quit and get your money back, and all products also have money-back guarantees.

Costco is like a warehouse and sells large sizes or quantities of most things. It has many products that aren't found easily in Korea, and the prices are usually at or near the lowest anywhere.

There is also a big E-mart, maybe the biggest in Korea, near the Yangjae location (Subway 3 line -- map at http://www.costco.co.kr/eng/whs_853.htm ). Maps for 4 other locations in Daegu, Daejeon and two more near subway stops in Seoul can be found at that site, too.

My ex-gf came back from Australia with some Tim-Tams and I don't think I've ever tasted a better cookie. I would love to find some of those as well.

Closest place I've found with real Tim Tams is Thailand. Not much help, I know. Other countries have the Indonesian made (licensed by Arnott's) Tim Tams. Next time I go to Thailand I'll take some orders.
