금천시장 | Geumcheon Market

December 18, 2011

I love street food. One of my new favourite food alleyways in Seoul is Geumcheon Market. It’s a great place to sample all sorts of traditional Korean dishes. The restaurants and bars are sandwiched together along the strip so you don’t have to hop very far to the next venue.

I started eating here a lot after I moved north of the river to Seochon-dong. The food is excellent and affordable. There’s this fantastic mandu (traditional Korean dumpling) snack restaurant called 손만두 분식 that’s been in business for ten years. Dumplings are handmade on site and will run you around 3,500 won for a box of ten.

Getting there: Take subway Line 3 to Gyeongbokgung Station, get out Exit 2 and take your first left.
