  • It is a folksy narrow market, is located about a 10-minute walk from the Gyeongbokgung Palace Station. Factories all around the shop lot still is selling is fun to watch. Tried to eat in the shop's famous sauce ddekbokgi but very tasty. In more ordinary tteokbokki ddekbokgi here I like better. Taste hot pepper paste and soy sauce blackened two there and I liked. Pancake! I want to come again.

  • So many came out on TV, visit the famous place to land. Yup I Bento really impressed. The market size is less than I thought I did. Visit the crowd during the week, but if you visit on the weekend might experience discomfort. I wanted to meet before food and leaves that can be heard in the mind. Among those unfriendly market trader who often so that the point he wishes. The food taste was okay.

  • In the women's two coins to buy 2 sets and opted for different types of food. They are really very good. Meals for street photography, large, voluminous discharges all coins. If ago and after are meal plan is suspect.

  • Partake in the lunch box with the many tourists that visits this place purely for. 10 coins which is not really enough for a good variety of food. Considering many places take 2 coins at a time. Food not the best and tolerable but otherwise interesting experience.
  • Fun experience where you change Korean won into Korea traditional coin and use that to buy food. Had lots of fun there and get to experience Korean lunch box
  • unique way to eat cheap meal. But i was a bit dissapointed due to the few food choices. But still with 5000won u will be able to eat alot. If u are in the area i would recommend. But becareful when you go because the foods get cold after lunch time
  • Tteokkboki here was really good... not like ither markets where it is really gooey/saucy. It is wok fried just right it's a bit crispy on the outside. Also preferred the gimbap from here as well - the flavours of the pickled veg and dipping sauces were balanced just right.
  • Really cool place, there's a famous food area there. You can either have a bento and pick what you want to eat from anywhere or eat one place. Loved it! ^^
