Local Treasures

Today I decided to brave the rain & go check out Minnano Japanese Grocery. (Click on the link to find their Facebook page). I honestly went in search of sheet mask(s). I have heard that My Beauty Diary is a great brand so I picked up a few for myself & a friend to try out. I think I will debut these on my Mask Mondays so stay tuned!

The store itself was small so I don’t think I would consider it a grocery store. It seems almost like a tourist hotspot. Minnano was stocked to the brim with merchandise, very clean, & all of the staff were super friendly. I even found myself bowing back out of habit. lol Maybe I have watched one too many k-dramas. It seems to be divided up into a few sections consisting mainly of fresh food (meat mostly), snacks, drinks, oils, cookwear, beauty, & small otaku style collectibles & gifts. I walked out with a bag of cute snacks so hopefully they taste as amazing as they look!



Top row (from left to right) : Black Pearl, Natto, & Rice.

Bottom row: Red Wine, Caviar, & Strawberry Yogurt.

These were on sale for 1 x $1.60 or 3 x $3.99. If anyone has tried this brand out please let me know!

If I had to rate this place I would give it 4 out of 5 stars. I honestly wish it was bigger! I was hoping to stock up on some cooking essentials, but I think I will have to check out some other markets in town. As for the sheet masks I am hoping that I have found my new favorite local shop to splurge at!

Until next time my dear SanSeoulites…heart gifheart gif

Hello my SanSeoulites, annyeonghaseyo! I’m so sorry it has been awhile since my last post. I was completely swamped with finishing my last semester of college. I graduated a week ago with my BA so hooray for me!!! I know you can’t see it, but I’m jumping up & down like a girl who just met her ultimate bias. ^_^  Yes, I am THAT excited! This is great news for you as well. Why, you ask? Because I now have the time to expand and invite you all to something that I have only dreamed about. Of course this is a learning process so please bear with me while everything gets properly sorted. I won’t bore you with the details of building from the ground up, however, if you would like to help out please contact me at

Welcome to SanSeoul

Hallyu or the Korean wave is alive and well within the United States, particularly in Texas, where the K-pop movement has developed in hopes of being noticed by South Korea entertainment agencies. Hallyu is about more than k-pop though, it is a love of Korean culture along with their heart wrenching k-dramas, skincare, make up, & oh so delicious food. Residing in good ol’ San Antonio, Texas poses its own logistical challenges. Amazon, Drama Fever, & Hulu might be our best friend, but if we would like to see a k-pop group live or buy a variety of beauty merchandise then we must drive to Houston or Dallas or if we’re lucky enough only two hours to Austin! *Gasp* My goal with this blog is to explore San Antonio (along with the surrounding areas) & seek out the most friendly Hallyu people and places.  So subscribe, follow, and comment to stay connected. Kamsahamnida or 감사합니다!
