A place to down a bottle or two of soju ( 20% alcohol ) with a set meal, approximately 7,000W per grilled fish, served with rice, miso soup and pickles. Very fast and friendly service.

Grilled fish is a better alternative to bbq beef amd pork-- healthier and more reasonably priced ($30 vs $80). The market is lined with several fish restaurants, so use your gutfeel to choose the best griller who can entice you to come inside their place.

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.
