american department stores and restaurants



As in....which ones are in South Korea???

There are a lot of chains here, but usually, in very specific areas.

Fast Food:
  • McDonalds (of course)
  • Burger King
  • KFC
  • There are some Quiznos
  • Taco Bell (on the base)
There are more, but these are the most popular.

Restaurants:
  • Outback Steakhouse
  • TGI Fridays
  • VIPs--western food chain, not sure of origin...

Icecream/desserts:
  • Coldstone
  • Baskin Robbins--on like, every corner
  • Krispy Kream

Clothing/Department Stores:
Most of the department stores are Korean owned, but some carry high-end, name brand items. Of course, there are a knock-off stores everywhere, but you can find the real deal in specific areas of Seoul and Busan--not sure about other cities. Basic stores like:
  • Gap
  • Banana Republic
  • Forever 21--just opened in Seoul
  • Adidas
  • H&M to open in March 2010 in Seoul...very excited...
  • etc...

There are also 7-11's scattered throughout the country--sorry, no Slurpies or Big Gulps though.

That's all I can think of right now, but I'm sure there are plenty I can't think of at the moment.

Hope that answers the question??
