Eat Like a Local at Gwangjang Market
Gwangjang is one of the city’s oldest traditional covered markets – and largest with over 1,500 vendors hawking textiles, handicrafts, and clothing. But the shining star is the food court on the ground floor packed with dozens of stalls. This is the kind of place Andrew Zimmern would frequent. Don’t be scared to join the locals: pull up a plastic stool and sample fare like steaming seafood soups, grilled meats, mandu dumplings, and mung bean bindaetteok pancakes. Most courses are accompanied by free banchan, an assortment of shared side dishes. If the menus are only in Korean, simply point at the dishes you want. With such cheap prices, there’s no harm in indulging.
