Dana Mini mart: Korean Grocery, Snacks, Noodles and Ice cream

The Bacolod Food Hunters had been to Dana Mini mart before when it had just opened.  A few months later, they finally got their act together and now they’ve become a popular hotspot for students craving Bunggeopang (fish shaped ice cream) and korean snacks like Kimbap and spicy korean noodles. (You’ll also find beef bulgogi here.)

Dana Minimart also sells a wide range of korean products and spices.  Perfect for those who want to cook their own korean food.

Sorry for the blurred image! Cam hand slipped

The owner/manager told us that you could have them cook up your kimbap or prepare your noodles for you while you wait.

100 pesos gets you a kimbap, adding kimchi and toppings to your noodles 10 pesos, most expensive thing on the menu is 150 pesos! Not bad!

The Bacolod Food Hunters must-get item from this korean store is their Ottogi ready made curry.  Martin used to buy it all the time in Manila to make his signature dish, Curry Rice!

Ottogi curry - this is the good stuff

Japanese Curry and Korean curry is totally unlike the way Filipinos make their curry.  The Japanese and Koreans like their curry thick with an almost sauce like quality.

To make The Bacolod Food hunters’s Curry Rice, first heat up the Ottogi curry packet, cook up some japanese rice or thailand fragrant rice, fry up some chicken fingers then pour the curry sauce all over the fried chicken fingers.  Yum!
