What you'll do

From street snacks to traditional dishes, these are the foods I love eating. As a local who has lived in Seoul all my life, I know this city inside out and wish to show you the best night markets and best places to eat.

During this food experience, I’ll introduce the delectable Korean cuisine to you as well as connect you with other enthusiasts who share your love for food & flavors. We’ll kick off this culinary adventure with Bindaetteok, a fried mung bean pancake, then move on to a selection of small bites. From the classic Kimchi pancakes to the unique Treokbokki, you’ll be tasting specialties found here in Seoul.

For a real local experience, we’ll visit the Gwangjan market, one of the oldest food markets in the region. As we slowly comb through the Myeongdong street food alley, I’ll get the conversation rolling by sharing with you the history of Seoul along with interesting food tales only we locals know.

To truly understand the flavors of Seoul, we’ll try some traditional Chicken or Pork skewers. These are the iconic dishes not to be missed. Topping off our food quest, we’ll finish with a sampling of Myeongdong special 30cm ice cream, one of my favorites!.

We’ll finish up at a convenient spot with delicious memories and photos as we say goodbye and where I ensure you know your way home and help you with things to do while you’re in Seoul.

So in the future I think this is something I could have done myself. Be prepared to bring money for food because most things you will have to pay yourself- only a rice drink was bought for me at the end. What was cool was I got to see some of the people showcased on Netflix Streetfood Asia- that was a huge highlight. But yeah- go support the market anyways and go! It's something everyone should try once.

Good time in Kwangjang Market. My guide took me around to get all the foods I wanted, and introduced me to a few new things I didn't know!
