Shopping anywhere on Christmas Eve is most likely going to suck, but shopping at H-Mart is a nightmare.
For any of you that are familiar with H-Marts, they describe themselves as a Korean-American Asian supermarket chain, and the one near my house is generally busy and the parking lot is treacherous on a normal day.
On Christmas Eve the place was a zoo.
I just needed some chorizo.
And for those of you who are wondering why I went to a Korean supermarket to buy chorizo I say SHUT UP! SHUT UP! I WENT TO THREE SAFEWAYS FIRST AND THEY WERE ALL OUT OF CHORIZO. I WAS DESPERATE!
No. They didn’t have chorizo, but I did see an unattended skillet of hot oil so that is something different.At the end of the day I was glad they didn’t have chorizo because the lines were all at least 15 customers deep.
Anyway, for future reference I recommend staying as far away from H-Mart on Christmas Eve as possible.
And I had chorizo in my freezer anyway.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to each of you and may you have everything you need for dinner at home already.
