Our street food tour brought us to seven delicious meals: first cooking demonstration in their school, Korean green onion and seafood pancakes. Then off to an underground market beneath a parking garage to have tasty seaweed rolls – kimbop. Then outside again to... More

We did the dinner tour with a small group along with our guide Chris. Stops included Korean BBQ, topokki, chicken and tea/sweet milk wth shaved ice. All places also included different local adult beverages. Food choices were great and our guide was very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this tour to experience some Korean flavors.

I anjoyed this tour very much. Logan was a great guide! Tried samling many different kinds of local foods at four different places. Lots of funny stories from Logan also. The meeting point O'ngo Food is actually quite easy to find, so dont' worry about that.

Chris took us to 4 different spots for traditional bbq, fried chicken and beer, a pot of stew, and pancakes. Each taste was paired with a different traditional Korean alcoholic drink. Everything was delicious. My fiance and I were on the tour with 2 other couples and it was the perfect size for a food tour. We left stuffed, learned... More

This was a great evening. Our guide, Chris was fun and entertainig. He introduced us to several Korean dishes and drinks. My favorite were milky sparkling wine, korean barbeque and spicy noodle soup. It was a fun night and a great way to be introduced to foreign cuisine.

Staying in Gwanghwamun / Jongno

Neighbourhood Profile
Gwanghwamun / Jongno
If Gwanghwamun is the unofficial living room of Seoul, Jongno is the main hallway connecting some of Seoul’s most important historic sites and neighbourhoods. Being one of Seoul’s oldest neighbourhoods, the area is rich with history and culture in its palaces, shrines, and temples. Stand in the centre of Gwanghwamun Square with Gyeongbokgung Palace and Mt. Bugak in front of you, King Sejong the Great statue behind you, and modern office buildings encircling you—it’s one of the best ways to experience both past and present Seoul in one spot. The main street of Jongno is mostly dotted with restaurants and cafes, but explore deeper within its intricate alleys to pass decades-old restaurants, mom-and-pop shops, and pojangmachas (tents that open at night for quick bites and drinks) and life seems to run just as it did a decade or two ago. Don’t forget to stop at Gwangjang Market, Korea’s oldest traditional market, where it’s just as fun to explore as it is to eat the affordable market dishes that locals have been enjoying since the market first opened in 1905. For a break from urban life, walk along the restored Cheonggyecheon Stream that runs parallel to Jongno for a moment of natural refuge in metropolitan Seoul.
