  • Loving this place, you can pick your own seafood lively and proceed to the restaurant and tell them how you want it to be cook. The price is very reasonable too. Good place to have fresh seafood.  more »
  • Bought a car that captures raw anchovies for myeolchijeot visited place, district and a market, new buildings and new market of signboard colors distinguish the Interior tidy. Time to visit the fish catch on the thinker depending on price variation that doesn't. A bit late than when buying raw anchovies, moderately expensive prices, you had to buy.

  • It was big and there are many types of seafood. Even though it is wholesale but it is easy to buy small quantities. Most stalls don't have any English or Chinese words so foreigners may have a hard time buying. Restaurants are hidden, so it is best to ask the stall owner how to reach the nearest restaurant. There is entrance fee for eating purchases (from market) at restaurants.
  • There are two markets: old one and new one. The new market is at the gate 7, and the old one is near gate 1. I recommend the new market. Fresh and cheap.
  • It's a fish market. Many stalls but variety depends on what's in season and you may find quite a few stalls selling the same seafood. Buy what you like and being it upstairs to the several restaurants that will readily prepare typical Korean cuisine dishes with you "catch". Essentially as a seafood soup or grilled or steam or sashimi. Be mindful that most of the restaurants may not have much add-on ingredients, I bought oysters and wanted oyster omelette but they did not have eggs to prep my dish. The restaurant I went to charged 3,000 KRW for table setting for one person, 7,000 to steam a dish or have it grilled. Stir fry is 8,000, steamed fish is 10,000 and soup dish odds 10,000-20,000.
  • Anyone who comes to visit must eat here. You pick your seafood from the tank they cut it up there and you can eat it in the restaurant right about you. Reasonable price for food and great place for family and friends.
  • Walked through the wholesale area before reaching the "premium" building where you can buy seafood and have the restaurants cook it straight away for you. I liked the fresh seafood and the bargaining process, but didn't like how they just take your food to a restaurant of their choice for the cooking. We didn't really get a choice of how the seafood was to be cooked/served which bring steamed was ok for fresh seafood but when you order so much a little variety in serving style would have been nice
