Why Gwangjang Market is special ?

Gwangjang Market is famous for its abundance of street food. Many international visitors frequently visit to sample traditional Korean food. Bindaetteok (mung bean pancakes), bibimbap (mixed rice) and hotteok (pancakes with brown sugar filling) are the market's specialties. The bindaetteok in particular is a must-eat dish at this market. Mung beans are soaked and then ground in between millstones into a batter, and fried up with vegetables or chopped meat (beef or pork). Another dish that cannot be missed is bibimbap. Bibimbap is a popular Korean dish, a bowl of rice topped with vegetables, meat and gochujang (chilli paste). All of the ingredients are mixed together before eating.

Had great mandu. All the stall food looked great, I bet you couldn't go wrong. You could get lost looking at hanbok and cloth and souvenirs for hours in the twisty alleys! My favorite market so far!

So many stall to choose that selling bibimbap, ramen, toboki, pancake, sashimi and any other korean traditional foods. For muslim, you can try bibimbap or pancake stall that only sell vegi and seafoods. The market separate to wet market, and dry market that sell so many choices of silk, textile and hanbok (korean traditional clothe). To get here, you can walk along cheongyecheon until majeongyo bridge and go upstairs or take subway to jongno5(o)-ga station. try it and you will love it...
