Eating Sea Creatures in SeoulYou may not eat enough to consider it an actual meal, but fried squid is a traditional Korean snack sold by street vendors, at baseball games, and even in prepackaged containers at convenience stores for a quick bite on the go.
For a festive fried squid experience, head to bustling Myeongdong where you can have your very own squid, fried fresh on a street cart and served with a side of ketchup, for less than $5.00. Nosh on this Korean delicacy as you wander through the cluster of selfie-taking teenagers and Korea’s notorious beauty stores.
