Food in Seoul

Shopping and eating in Seoul is much fun, food I find are more expensive than shopping purchases but keep in mind their portions for food are pretty darn huge. Here are the things you can try when you are in Korea, pretty interesting eats.
说真的啊,我在韩国吃感觉真的还有点小贵,但是就分量很大,而且还蛮多蛮有趣的小吃。

Left:This is like a Anko bun, red bean paste if you aren’t familiar with the term. I’m not a big fan of red bean but even so during winter was quite a nice treat. You can find them along side roads.
左:红豆饼
Right: Lunch at Sopoong, our very first meal and we totally loved it. Kimchi Jiggae ftw.
右:Kimchi Jiggae, 不好意思啊,真的不会翻译
If you really can’t stand the cold, invest in these furry shoes, we got them for 15000Won which is around RM60-ish. Wore them for the remaining of our trip and was so worth the purchase!
我觉得要找吃的,首先还是要有双很好的鞋子,不然走路真的还会痛

Meat on a stick. Literally see them everywhere when you are at the grounds near Dongdaemun. I really quite enjoyed it.
The only thing that really irks me was that the weather was so cold, anything that was just slightly more than room temperature looked as though as it was steaming hot.
Imagine my disappointment when the food was just slightly above rooom temperate when I ate it
路边其实会有很多卖吃的,味道来说是蛮不错的,可是可能我去的时候天气太冷了,食物只要稍微有点热气就会冒烟,感觉好像被骗了似的哈哈哈哈
Korean BBQ, make sure you have one meal at least trying out some local bbq restaurants.
Shop owners are quite friendly, and sometimes they might even throw in some complimentary stuff for you!
韩国烧烤,这个你一定要试吃啦,店员其实还蛮友善的,有时候还会送赠品哦
And perhaps my fav meal of all, Muk Shi Don Na which literally translates to Eat Rest Money Leave. Google them up if you are keen to try but they are def quite worth the visit. They have a few outlets around so see which suits best for you.
可是我最喜欢的啊,还是这家 Muk Shi Don Na

Then we have the much popular line cafe. This is the one in Garosu-gil
我们还去了Line Cafe 呢~
But I have to admit my fav shopping area will have to be Hongdae. I find Ehwa shops being very scattered, cheap nonetheless but Hongdae is still my fav area to shop. If you are shopping in the area, make sure you find time for some of the cafes around the area, got some pretty interesting ones going on. There’s this book cafe (Cafe Comma) next to the exit of Hongik University Station
我自己本身是很喜欢在HongDae 逛街了。觉得其他的不是人太多,不然就是店面分布太散了

But if there’s one thing you cannot miss, is the Kiss the Tiramisu tiramisu ice cream! This thing is YUMS. They open only from 2pm and there’s always a queue so be ready to wait. Priced at 5000 won but trust me, it’s worth it!
可是啊,若你有个甜点一定要试吃,你一定要吃这个提拉米苏,超级好吃哦,店面2点开始开店,可是要排长龙的,价钱在5000won

and if you are looking for cheap eats, and so happen to be craving for bread you can also try one of these egg buns and my fav toast chain store “Isaac”
若你想吃便宜的,可以考虑到Isaac 吃吃它们的吐司,还真的好好吃呢
Don’t underestimate what a good toast can do for you =p

For night snacks, don’t forget your fried chicken, local cafes
宵夜嘛,你可不要忘了你的韩国炸鸡哦
and try hunting down these makgeolli coz they are quite yums. 1.5L for 2000Won! and of course strawberries to go with it
也不要忘了当地的米酒和草莓哦,都是很不错吃的。
and that’s a wrap for my Seoul Trip!
写完啦~希望会对你们有帮助哦
