Travelling abroad is one thing that belongs on almost everyone’s bucket list—seeing a different sea, experiencing a different culture, trying different food. Food. Something that becomes a daily topic. “What food should we eat?,” “Where shall we eat?,” “Is the food good here?” The list of questions becomes almost endless! Well, who better to ask about good places to eat in Korea than the hardworking team at SnackFever? Here are some of the group's favourite places, that maybe you can check out when you’re over there.
- Tosokchon Samgyetang
This restaurant lies in the area surrounding Gyeongbokgung Station and is known for selling some of the tastiest samgyetang (chicken soup with ginseng) and allows customers to have that full traditional experience with the restaurant being in a cute little traditional Korean house. Though the soup is their main dish, it is not all they sell there. Why not try some of their seafood and onion pancake or even some flavoursome rotisserie chicken? All while enjoying the peaceful ambiance and friendly service, it truly makes for a peaceful meal.
- Gwangjang Market
It’s street food, and a lot of it! Perfect for those who don’t quite know what they fancy to eat. Take a visit to this fast-paced and lively market and you will be spoilt for choice. From fishcakes to kimbap, a plethora of noodles or some hearty dumplings. Almost anything you can think of can be found right here. All the mouth-watering foods layout in front of you, the sizzling aroma floating through the air and an exciting, friendly atmosphere surrounding you. It’s definitely a must-visit for anyone looking to travel to South Korea.
