  • Oil ddeok-Bok-GI, chicken, Octopus skewer cretins etc in a variety of dishes. Yup I'm thinking you want to buy, and if you watch the market when I was a kid I thought I did.

  • 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! ^^
