If you’re visiting South Korea, you’re bound to spend some time at Incheon International Airport Terminal 2. This terminal was opened in 2018, and it’s where most international airlines land. Here, you can find a myriad of famous and authentic Korean restaurant chains that are perfect for that and here are some of our favorites!
- Soonhee's Pancake
Soonhee's Pancake specializes in bindaetteok (mung bean pancakes), which are great as a snack or a quick bite before a flight. The perfect dish to share with your travel buddies, and if you’re flying solo, you can always take those leftovers for later! They also serve kimbap, spicy rice cakes, and burgers.
To satisfy your kimchi cravings, you must stop at Hanokjip, which is known for its steamed kimchi combo and kimchi stews. It’s a perfect place to grab a hearty and fulfilling meal before leaving Korea or having a first taste of what’s to come during your stay.
- Chimac Hunter
Undoubtedly, one of Korea’s most famous pairings has to be beer and fried chicken. Chimac Hunter is the place to go for that. You can get the chicken to go if you’re in a hurry, but we recommend you sit down and enjoy this meal, especially if you’re traveling with a group.
