SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA – One of the best Korean food experiences in Seoul is to go to the fish market, buy a bunch of fresh live seafood, and have them cook it all up immediately at one of the restaurants upstairs. It doesn’t get more fresh and fun for eating Korean seafood in Seoul. We were a bit short on time, so we decided to do it for breakfast, and one of the best things is, the seafood market is open 24 hours a day! #KoreanFood #Seafood #Seoul
Noryangjin Fisheries Wholesale Market – If you love seafood, this is the place you have to come when you’re in Seoul. Much of the seafood is even kept live and in tanks for water before it’s sold. The hardest part is knowing which stall at the market to buy your seafood from as there’s such a diversity and so many stalls.
Stall #17 – We walked around for a while until finding a very friendly lady who was at Stall #17 – I would highly recommend her, she’s fair and she’s really nice, and has great seafood. We shopped for a while, choosing a mix of seafood, and squirting sea squirts. All seafood – 113,000 KRW ($95.19)
Sashimi plate – 70,000 KRW ($58.97) – Just across from Stall #17 we also bought an impulse plate of sashimi.
Next, someone appeared and carried our seafood upstairs for us. After making a round, we chose a restaurant upstairs with traditional Korean food low tables and the ladies running the restaurant were very friendly. They made a variety of different dishes, cooked a few, and sliced and diced most raw onto plates. The benefit of sitting at a restaurant is that you get all the Korean food side dishes. The seafood was unbelievably fresh, from the live octopus (one of the delicacies of Korean food) to the multiple variations of sea squirts, spoon worms, and sea cucumbers. It was a meal of unique flavors and textures, and some seriously exotic seafood. Cooking and side dishes at restaurant for 6 people – 99,000 KRW ($83.40)
