  • The site has been renovated completed and all stalls are now accommodated in a new building. Most of the stalls are selling similar product and prices are similar as well. The only difference is that some store keepers can communicate with fluent English. After ordering your seafood, you can go to the upper level with a lot of restaurant to help you to prepare seafood in different ways. It all depends on your taste. Anyway i find the new building is much better place than the old venue.

  • If you are not a picky eater and don't mind seeing live sea food being butchered then this is a must visit for foodies visiting Seoul. Almost no one speaks English but I was able to get by with limited Korean vocabulary. Therefore if you can have someone who is fluent in Korea, I assume the experience will be more enjoyable

  • Wet spaces. Most of the wholesale seafood stall are similar. Check pricing as may differ from various store. It's more about who service you better or you prefer to be served. After selecting the seafood, take escalator upstairs or ask direction from the wholesale and they will direct you to more than 10 restaurants that will cook on site for you. Again check pricing and 'feel' which you think you prefer as the one we got recommended too has bad service, the seafood wad not cooked well as we expect from a 'freshly' purchase seafood. We bought a crab, some clams etc... Overall we feel we have been overcharge and below average cooking method. Thus the 2 star rating.

  • The seafood was definitely fresh, but it seem too tourist and the sales people are a bit pushy. You can haggle a little bit, but if you do it too much the sales people get a bit offended. We had live flounder, live mini octopus, live clams, and live abalone. Overall we like the flounder and live clams the best. The octopus was a unique experience, but abalone isn't as good as we thought it would be. Overall we paid $70 for the seafood and $21 for restaurant fee. I believe this is still far cheaper than U.S. would have been that if you can find live abalone and flounder or Octopus in the first place. We definitely recommend people new to Seoul to try it once.

  • We got here by Line 9. Followed the direction and found the place easily. All stalls selling same things, either fishes (sashimi) or shellfish (crabs, lobsters, scallops, etc). As we walked we noticed those who were able to converse a bit in English were more confident in approaching us. We explained that we need the cooking that doesnt contain alcohol, pork or lard. One of the stall owners told us that he is familiar with serving Muslims, so we ended buying from him. It costs us 119,000 (based on weight of crabs) won for the shellfish and 39 won for cooking service (based on weight of items to be cooked). We were very satisfied 👍.
