Kwangjang Market, Seoul Reviews - Write a Review

  • Excellent joint for a local food scene. I was there in early December so it was cold but not freezing, I don't know if that's the reason it wasn't touristy at all but I really felt like I was in the middle of a local marketplace. The street food was amazing, and the merchants there doesn't rip us off at all, unlike most of the similar tourist sites in other cities. Top 5 to-do if you like to explore a local food experience.

  • Lots of textile and clothing shops. In the middle there are many food stalls offering snacks like mung beans pancake, dumpling soup and noodles and pan fried rice cake. I got one if those at 1,500W and it was delicious. This is a good place to wander around for a hour or two.

  • Good place for some street food. Many vendors but pretty standard set of choices. The Korean pancakes were pretty good. As long as you can ask, you can pick and choose vegetarian options.

  • Open air market with a roof. Similar to namdaemoon market. Lot's of food vendors. I liked the fresh squeezed pomegranate juice and the sugar cane juice. Practically any vendor food there is can be found.

  • One of the few underrated place in Seoul. It is a great place for street food, especially in the morning. After that, you can wander around the market.
