  • Go to this place hungry!! It's an amazing experience! Not for people who don't like being around large crowds! (Fair warning) but if you're looking for a bargin authentic breakfast, lunch or dinner head on over here!

  • Lots of good foods to eat. The bindaedduck is good but filling. Hocks are good. Kimbabp is good.

  • This market was a dream. The amazing foods, the persistent ladies trying to get you to eat their food (I did) and the great prices. Wish I lived in Seoul so I could come here often!!!

  • Went on Chuseok and was thrilled to find the food stands still open. Binddaetteok, boribab and hotteok available with slightly less congestion than usual. It also seemed that a lot more restaurant workers were speaking English compared to the last time I went earlier this year.

  • This place was busy and offers a great place to eat. It's not street food but mainly a quick sit down food area. There must have been over 100 places to eat, my only problem was that a lot of places sold the same thing, made me wonder how one person would chose 1 place over the other.
