After school, an elementary school kid stops by to buy an ice cream cone and stares at the rows of chips also being sold. Take a corner window seat and you can shamelessly enjoy a beer while people watching. If hanging out at convenience stores is cool and hip, there's no place that does it better than Turtle Supermarket where you can have your dried filefish fillet toasted over yeontan coals and listen to reggae music... in Ikseon-dong! A mini-recreation of the Chungcheong region, where the owner's from, this is the place to visit to get that laid-back feeling of being in the countryside.
It looks like just another supermarket in the neighborhood, but the gamaek joints in Jeonju inspired it. They sell dried pollack or calamari along with drinks, and the walls covered in messages scribbled by customers give you an idea of how inspirational this place can get.
