Seoul Culinary Tour
TAGY Travel Korea
We take you for a pleasant walk from venue to venue to explore tastes, culture, and history of Korea and Seoul. Our main goal is to offer a variety of domestic dishes, snacks and beverages served in authentic places, talk about and show how life in Korea is today and how it came to be. With a guide, you'll visit at least four eateries that provide samples of Korean dishes.
Norangjin fish market
Raw live small octopus
The Noryangjin Fish Market is a large and vibrant fish and seafood center. If it swims in the ocean and it’s edible, chances are you will find it for sale here by some 700 vendors. The joy of this bustling area is simply wandering around the soggy concrete from stall to stall discovering bubbling tanks full of all sorts of strange creatures that you may have never seen before. You can buy various kinds of seafood you like from the market. Then go to a restaurant in the market where clean and cook the sea foods for you and enjoy the fresh sea foods.
Gyeongdong Herbal Medicine Market
With its winding alleyways lined with teeming barrels chock-full of homeopathic ingredients (leaves, herbs, roots, flowers, mushrooms and even centipedes!), Gyeongdong Herbal Medicine Market is a feast for the eyes. Comprising more than 1,000 shops and stalls, it remains Korea’s most famous and one of its largest traditional medicinal markets. In keeping with the name of this market, you can even find and taste fried ginseng from a street vendor.
It is so busy and crowded open air market. The market has several large sections that sell meat, fish, vegetables, dried fruits, clothing, and other stuff. With plenty of options to choose from and a large network of alleys, Cheongrangri Market is a fun place to get lost in for the day. It will amaze you that in the hustle and bustle of this forever advancing city such tradition still remains.
You can easily get a glimpse at an older Korea right in the heart of Seoul. Cheongrangri’s have some of the best prices at markets in Seoul.
Gwangjang Market is one of Korea's largest and oldest traditional markets and is renowned for its quality silk goods, linen bedding, and hand-made goods. It is popular with foreign visitors looking to sample some of the best Korean street foods.
Galmaegisal alley at Jongro-3ga
As dusk falls, people start to gather in the small alleyways, filling the empty seats. Soon, the smoke from the grilling meat and chatter about the day's work fills the air. This is the scene during the afternoon rush hour in Jongno-3-ga's "Gogi golmok," or "Galmaegisal Alley." There are many meat restaurants in this alley, and they are famous for their delicious Galmaegisal(pork skirt meat). The quality of the meat really stand out, redder in appearance similar to beef and having a definitive beefy texture. The thick metal grill cooks the meat evenly without any flare-ups, and the stand-out sauces (ground perilla seeds, nutty bean flour, and lemon-infused soy sauce) were perfect.
