  • It is the dried fruit market near the hotel. Went to eat breakfast, watching someone else's blog. Locals came out from a shop in the store and in front of the same alley small 1-delicious (lol) and encouraged the fit. Is not only Korea but my aunt had friendly and delicious. It was a 5,000 won. Peek into the alley, looking for. Listen to your aunt when you bring lunch to go with go to the food shop (laughs)
