This is the best place to be especially if you are looking for a good place where the local Koreans go and dine. Name it and Gwangjang market has it. Gwangjang Market is one of Korea’s oldest traditional markets with over 100 years of history. Locals come here for quality silk goods, bedding, fabric, hanbok and clothing shopping. From 6pm onwards, the shops close but the food market starts to become lively.
** Lots of food stalls everywhere. Look to the left and right. They all have them here.
** A kind of Korean pancake I guess ^ ^
There's more here. Exotic foods ranging from pig's feet, intestines, boiled rice with pig's blood and way more than the mind can imagine.
** Usually, the normal Ajumma ( Korean word for mother) is the one serving you their local foods. Quite an experience absolutely.
** This is my ultimate favorite. They call this sushi bomb. People eat this all like a bomb, like eating it in 1 go. Another interesting experience.
