My kingdom for a lentil
« on: May 12, 2011, 10:26:09 AM »
Hi, does anyone know of anywhere that sells lentils/chickpeas/split peas online? (and could you give the link??) I'm thinking of starting to bring in my own food to my elementary school for lunch, as all this sticky white rice leaves me feeling starving after a few hours. And contrary to what all Koreans seem to believe, is rice really that good for you?

Don't know online but International Supermarket in Itaewon sells them.
Everything is not as it seems.

No one owes you anything.... get over it.

If you really have to order them online, Underground Grocers have chick peas and beans and stuff, their postage is super fast and cheap (3K won for a HUGE box).

Otherwise just do a bit of hunting at Home Plus, E Mart etc, or if there's a market in town. I buy a lot of red beans from the ajummas at the market and they're dirt cheap, but I've also found beans and chick peas in the 'organics' or 'grains' part of the supermarket.

Second the recommendation for the International Supermarket, they are awesome!

Use code WAK323 for iherb, up to $10 off your first order. You know you want to.

Yeah I had to go up from Seoul from Jeju for the EPIK Orientation last month. Brought back a couple bags, but they are no match for my prolific curry and soup making!

Check out this thread; it should help in your quest for lentils.  Good luck!

Brown rice is really good for you, white rice is not. Whole grain bread is really good for you, white bread is not. The nutrients have been taken out to make it sweeter... thus it's just sugar and carbs.

You can get lentils from the Foreign Food Market in Itaewon. Personally, I get mine from the Foreign Food street in Ansan at Ansan Station. Also, It's highly likely you can get them on gmarket.co.kr

This was recommended to me by an Indian postdoc.  I've never ordered from the site.

The South Asian stores in Sasang, Busan stock most of these items.

lentils, brown rice, chickpeas, mung beans plus loads of other stuff. People I've known have ordered from it and it's always been good!

Where in Korea are you living? Are you far from Daegu? The Daegu Bukbu(north) Bus terminal has a few foreign shops very close by where they sell lentils and kidney beans! Also in Itaewon, Seoul there is a foreign mart that sells lentils and all that good stuff.

Ditch the school lunchs! I did this year and it was a wise decision for me. The white rice bloated me and I was starving at my desk about two hours after lunch.

My local Kim's Club (Ilsan) has chickpeas, lentils, kidney beans, navy beans, and black beans (all canned) - maybe try one in your area to see if they stock them now?

iherb.com They sell the Red Mill lentils that you find in health food stores in the U.S.
Seoul.AngloINFO.com
