SEOUL Food Guide 2017
What to eat in SEOUL, Korea?

Hey hey!!! Finally I’m back with more posts on SEOUL.
So I just had a trip back to South Korea, mainly SEOUL and JEJU early this May and I just can’t wait to share with you guys on my new discoveries from this trip.

But, for today I’ll be mainly sharing with you guys some of the best meals I had in SEOUL this round and hope this might come in handy in your coming trip (just in case you don’t know what or where to eat).

구이마을 BBQ (Sinchon)

Add:서대문구 창천동 57-6
☎:(02) 322-0090

Cheap and nice BBQ restaurant located at the corner of a bustling street of Sinchon that serves beef, lamb, chicken and pork meat at an extremely reasonable price of 5,000 – 6,000 won. Not something that you should be missing out when in SEOUL.

꼭그닭 Noh Chef & Pane Chicken


GANGNAM Main Store

Add: 서울 강남구 역삼동 817-33 ,2층
☎:(02) 565-533
⌚:15:00 ~ 01:00
How to get there:Gangnam St. (Exit 11)


Add:서울 마포구 어울마당로 151-1
☎:(02) 323-5355
⌚:14:00 ~ 01:00
How to get there:Hongdae St. (Exit 7)

Not just ordinary chicken but with cheese and bread and something that you just have to try here in SEOUL. The tender and juicy taste will make you go Wowww and Wowww!


Add: 52-5 Myeongdong 2(i)-ga, Jung-gu, Seoul, South Korea
☎:(02) 318-2969
⌚:11:00 ~ 23:00

A fusion restaurant that serves KONGBUL (bean sprout with bulgogi), located at the shopping streets of Myeongdong.
The taste of this dish is something very new and refreshing to me as it might look like a bulgogi dish but it doesn’t taste exactly like one. Worth the try I would say.

먹쉬돈나 Mukshidonna

Add: 66-5 Yulgok-ro 3-gil, Samcheong-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul, South Korea
☎:(02) 723-8089
⌚:11:00 ~ 21:00

One of the best Tteokbokki (korean rice cake) that I’ve ever eaten in SEOUL.
Everything just tasted so good with the chewy-soft rice cake.
I recommended this place 3 years back in my post on Things to do in Samcheongdong. However, the location of this shop now is no longer at the small lane but they kind of invested in a bigger area just opposite of the old shop where they used to be. There also have branches in Myeongdong and also Singapore.

김북순 큰남비집 Kimchi Jjigae
(Kim Book Soon Keun Nambi Jib)

A plain looking restaurant located at the corner of the hippie street of Garosugil which is unexpectedly famous for Kimchi Jjigae dishes which garnered many celebrities attention. The lids in this shop has been filled with heaps of celebrities’ autographs.
Worth the try as Kimchi Jjigae can never be as good as this.

Address: 서울시 강남구 신사동 522
☎:(02) 543-9024
⌚:10:30 ~ 22:00 (closed on Sundays)
How to get there: Sinsa St. (Line 3, Exit 8)

교촌 Kyochon

Kyochon fried chicken… Everybody’s favourite fried chicken!
I guess this needs no introduction as it gotten so so popular with Lee Min Ho as their brand ambassador.
It’s at every corner of SEOUL and even all over Asia now but somehow I still think Korea’s one is still the best.
The taste and the portion beats Malaysia’s Kyochon for some reason!

So that’s all on SEOUL Food Guide!

Before I end this post, here’s a BONUS of my JEJU eats!

Baekbun Garden 백번가든

Add: 1584-4 Aewol-ri, Aewol-eup, Jeju City (제주시 애월읍 애월리 1584-4)
☎: 064-799-6900
⌚: 12:00 ~ 22:00
(Break time 15:00 ~  17:00)

If you can’t pick between seafood and BBQ black pork, then here’s the place that you should be visiting.
Their signature octopus hot stew is one of the recommended dish here if you’re a seafood lover.
I personally love the crabs over the octopus because I’m not really a big fan of octopus but I can tell the seafood here is really fresh.
It’s so fresh that sometimes you might think it tasted almost raw.
And… when in JEJU you must not miss out the BBQ black pork.
I’m not a pork person but I really love the taste of the black pork.

So that’s all for this food guide post and I really had a hard time writing this one cos I had to control myself from drooling!

Thanks for dropping by and please stay tune as there will be more updated SEOUL & JEJU post coming up soon!
