  • This place is a tourist attraction place. The seafood itself is reasonable. However, the other charges like cooking charges for each dish and per person charges jagged up the cost to mid $200 including the seafood cost. Nonetheless, my family and I had. Good time eating and enjoying the fresh seafood.
  • A traditional seafood market in Busan. Not much to buy for tourists apart from dried goods which are not particularly cheap either. But definitely an interesting visit nonetheless. Recommend having a meal at the grilled fish restaurants along the market. Fish was really fresh. Best to come in a larger group to try the different varieties of fish.
