Shanghai Koreatown

韩国城

Our next stop in Shanghai was Koreatown. Like any other big city, Koreans have found a spot to call their own. We took the subway in to the Gubei district for some Korean food.

You know you're there when the signs start to become tri-lingual.

After a quick stop at the supermarket, we headed to a seafood restaurant.

We tried a lot of different things from the menu - most being seafood. Fried and grilled fish, seafood jun, and a seafood soup/stew/hot pot that has a name that sounds like "jungle."

And you can really get to know a culture by what you find in their bathrooms. Check out the disposable complimentary toothbrushes.

And one to file under What The...?!?
As we left K-Town, we passed these ads for a new commercial real estate development. We got a kick out of them. Apparently one way to avoid Chinglish on your signs is to plagiarize American magazine headlines. You might just double check the type of magazines next time.
