By Matt Hodges Staff reporter People don't walk down Ehwa's sloping boulevards, they skip. Wedding shops and confetti-like snow and treacle-colored coffee houses point to a land made of gingerbread cooked up by Grimm himself. Unfortunately you can't eat this dreamland, though, because it's real.
Just ask the street-vendors. They sell bug-larvae, nuts and thick tentacles that not only look but smell real. Gut-wrenchingly so. But sweet can beat the street and if cutesy Japanese candies are up your alley grab a goodie bag, make an appointment with your dentist and head for Aki-ko, the newest gimmicky pic'n'mix shop to hit town.
