Sea food is Korea is very different from that of other countries and Daepo-port is the place where you can try Korean style sea food. Of course, it is a bit pricy since it is a famous tourist spot, yet it is still reasonable for...More

Plenty of seafood restaurants here but the price is much higher compare to those you could find in or near to Sokcho town. I'd a seafood dinner here which is almost 5x more expensive than what i had in Sokcho market.

We walked back to Sokcho from Seorak Sunrise Park to the city and came across Daepo Port, which is also an area where there are any restaurants and a Ramada resort. Most of the restaurants sell raw fish, octopus, shrimps, crabs and shellfish. There are...More

Went via bus from Seoul. It is a great way to get a different feel of South Korea. The foods on offer were amazing - especially the varieties of seafood. Movies have been made here at the ocean. Broadens your sense of the country.

Non stop, fresh sashimi of many varieties of fish, squid, octopus. A haven for seafood and sashimi lovers! There are many stalls to choose from, but virtually all sell the same thing. Cooked options are available too, but most are meant to be served raw....More
