I still wonder what alimentación means till this day…hmm. Google translate gave ‘feeding’ as result. ^O^ Okay..I get the gist. The word has something to do with food. Hehehe..
Today..I’m gonna write about Hans Alimentacion. A Korean mini-market in the middle of Madrid.
Why do I write about Korean food when I’m here in Madrid?!! I don’t know the reason for sure myself but a big part of me still misses Korea and Korean food. Arghh…정말 정말 그립다 한식을..
The reason why is because I want to eat ‘Tteokbokki’. I once said to my friend that I will not miss any Korean food in future except this special one. Tteokbokki!!
Well..that craving brought my feet to Hans Alimentacion.
When I stepped into the shop, I said my greeting..Annyeonghaseyo and there were two ahjussis (older men) inside who were surprised at my speech.
My husband urged me to speak Korean with them and I did. The feeling…as if I have met my countrymen, as close as that hahaha. I was so giddy with excitement…반갑다
It is a small mini-market but sufficient to say that I could buy most of the ingredients to make Tteokbokki. The shop also sell Kimchi and the owner offered for 3.50 euros but I am not Korean so I definitely can survive without Kimchi here in Madrid…hehe.
Look at what I bought!
You can substitute 물엿 (corn syrup)
with sugar or honey but I always prefer 물엿.
It was pricey but what the heck! I don’t care..I don’t buy these everyday.
This is the result. Tadaaaa!!
How to go to Hans Alimentación?
See that ahjussi? Hehe..
Walk out from exit Calle de los Reyes of Plaza de España metro station, Line 3 or 10. It takes about 5-10 minutes from the exit to the shop.
