  • Love the famous fried toekkpokki that appeared in many tv shows in Korea. The spicy version is awesome if you can take it. The old granny frying it will serve you quick and you get complimentary tea on the side as well. Fuss free and simple set up. Worth the walk here from the palace, and you get to explore the shops around too.
  • It has same age with the place. But it did changed the ambiance. But still you can feel with Joseon coins!
  • It's a great place to experience the Korean food market with old Korean currency. You exchange your Korean Won into old Korean currency and you are given a plastic container to place all your food purchases. There are even places where you can sit down and eat.
  • Delicious food, fun shops, unique view of Seoul. The surrounding area is also very pretty with lots of cute boutiques and cafes.
  • Cheap and good korean street food can be found here!
