Drop-off at Hongdae
It is known that Gwangjang Market has one of the best street foods in Seoul. It was featured in the Netflix documentary Street Food Asia and several foreigners have visited the market since the show aired.
The two most popular food items in Gwangjang Market are yukhoe and mung bean pancakes. We will be having yukhoe in kimbap form. The yukhoe is made of the freshest raw beef. Those who cannot eat raw beef will be served mayak kimbap which is a mini version of vegetable kimbap.
These foods are usually paired with Makgeolli, a Korean rice wine. During the tour, everyone will be provided a glass of makgeolli. (Unfortunately, there is no substitute drink for those who cannot drink alcohol)
Ikseon-dong Hanok Cafe
Ikseok-dong, a hot spot in the middle of Jongno, has tons of aesthetic cafes, like this one. This cafe is inside a hanok but it has a modern twist. You will be given a cup of coffee here. Other drinks are available as well but will be asked to pay the difference.
You will have time to freely explore Ikseon-dong. Personal expenses spent during this time is not provided by the tour.
Mangwon Market is also a popular market to visit for good street food. Its most popular items are chicken, hotteok, knife cut noodles, etc. Some days, the lines get really long, and you may have to wait in line for some of the popular stalls.
Hotteok is a popular winter street food in Korea. It is piping hot and filled with melted brown sugar. There has been a trend of different flavors of hotteok. The one on the bottom left in the picture above is a recent trend, Bburingcle(뿌링클) Hotteok. This flavor is made of cheese powder and herbs and is popular among the younger generation. This stall closes on Fridays, so avoid booking a tour on Friday if you want to try the bburingcle hotteok.
You will be able to pick to have either tteokbokki, knife noodles(left), or sujebi(right). The two noodle dishes are made with the same broth but have different noodle shapes.
With a belly full of good food, you will be dropped off at Hongdae. Book a tour for an introduction to the best Korean food!
