Best known as Seoul’s largest food alley (or meokjagolmok ), the Gwangjang Market is home to some 200 stalls set up among kimchi and fresh seafood vendors. Its specialty is the golden fried nokdu bindaetteok (mung-bean pancake; ₩5000) – paired beautifully with makgeolli (rice wine). Otherwise go a more healthy option of bibimbap or boribap (mixed rice and barley topped with a selection of veggies).
