  • Spending time on the 2nd floor is absolutely great. Food is the same at every restaurant and it is definitely worth the price. The more people you are, the better since you can simply try so many...

  • Great market! Look for the modern coffee shop and ask for a lemon espresso and eat a ssiat hotteok. If you’re there in the winter they still do the old fashioned sweet potatoes which are amazing.

  • Must see market! If you just want to experience a fantastic fish market as a tourist, this is the place to go! Lots to see and a great view of the ocean as well. The smell of the market can be a little different.
  • Amazing place for fresh seafood! Not only can you buy it but you can go upstairs and have them prepare it for you right away. Some of the workers are a pretty aggressive so if you just wanna look around and aren't interested in making a purchase, try not to make eye contact.
