Seoul Foods is a huge store. It's located in the old SuperValu building in downtown South Sioux City. It's not just a grocery store, though. They also sell jewelry, suitcases, clothing, and an odd assortment of other odds and ends. It's great fun to just see all the strange stuff they have under one roof.

The average grocery shopper would be hard pressed to get everything they need from this one store, but it is surprisingly complete for an ethnic store. They have a small selection of fresh meat and a larger selection of frozen meats. They also have a large fresh fruit and vegetable area.

Even though they call themselves an Oriental Grocery, they have a better line of Mexican and South American specialties than Oriental items.

They have an excellent selection of whole grains and legumes. They are the only store within 75 miles that I know of that sells soy beans. They also have Turkish coffee. Although I haven't looked as hard for Turkish coffee as I have for soy beans in Siouxland, it's the only store I know of that has Turkish Coffee.

They are competitively priced. Many specialty Latino items, such as canned cactus leaves and fresh mangoes are cheaper than the other local grocery stores.

Although it's a minor thing, they are the only store that carries Tones brand spices rather than Schilling. I prefer the Tones spices because their Curry Powder has more zing than the Schilling and their Paprika actually has some flavor (although Tones Paprika is not as good as Hungarian Paprika). As a result I get most of my spices here. For spices that I can't get at Seoul Food I generally get in Omaha.

PROS: Good prices and it's just plain fun
CONS: Not a complete grocery store. You still have to stop at HyVee.
