    My daughter loves Korean food (as do I) and as we have Korean friends is familiar with the different items on offer – she chose to visit South Korea on the first stop of her summer holiday and has been raving about the food! I must ask her if she went to this market. We are in Sydney now and off to meet our Korean friends later for a Korean BBQ – can’t wait!! We must visit S Korea I think!

    Delicious post. I love a good street food market and this one looks fantastic. Pinned for when I eventually visit Seoul.

    Mmmmmm! Love Korean food. It all looks delicious and I want to eat it all. Washed down with some beer of course!

    I visited Seoul a couple of years ago and had a great time apart from the winter weather. The street food was second to none. Sugarcane juice is one of my favourite drinks also, although I have to say I’m not a big fan of kimchi.

      Barry, I am not sure we can be friends! Kimchi is one of my favourite things to eat in the world! But I know many people who don’t like it too so I guess I understand! At least we can appreciate sugarcane juice together

    Oh! Yum! Those sushi-like gimbap look good! How were the dumplings? Love korean food. We are a bit vary of the street food though. Hope you didnt have any stomach upset the next day (which usually happens to us after having street food).

      Oh that’s a shame. I mostly eat street food when I am travelling and have never had a problem in the many months I’ve spent in Asia. I think street food is safer to eat than restaurant food a lot of the time as it’s made right in front of you and ingredients tend to be fresh!

    It looks quite a challenge to choose from all the food offers in Seoul’s Gwangjang Market! I wonder what all the non-vegi stuff is and if I’d like to try it 😉

      I really want to go back and spend even more time trying all the food! Eating your way around Seoul is quite a legitimate way to spend a day!

    I love Korean food, I would have to check out Gwangjang Market on a trip to Seoul. I think I’d go for the Korean dumplings like you did!

    Stop it! You almost made us want to lick the screen:) We love Asian street food but we don’t really know about Korean food. You definitely made us want to try it now. Everything looks so Fresh and delicious. Will pin this if if end up visiting Seoul one day 🙂 Keep up the great work!

    Food is definitely one of the reasons I want to visit Korea! Those Korean dumplings look delicious…. but do you really drink the sugarcane juice? I can’t bring myself to do that…. if I am going to have something that is almost all sugar I would prefer grape juice….. in the form of red wine! LOL

      Oh it’s divine! I don’t find it to be that sweet either! Pretty sure they mix it with water anyway!

    I haven’t really had an opportunity to sample Korean food so I read this post with interest. Love that you ordered a portion of 2 meals as you couldn’t decide …why not eh! I’m sure you hiked or ran up a mountain the next day and it was able to give you extra energy 😀 I have heard that Korea is a very friendly place so when I visit, I remember that the strangers I encounter are just friends I haven’t met yet! Pinned! #FeetDoTravel

    Great video and photos of your time in the Gwangjang Market “Street Food” in South Korea. I love visiting that market and sitting with the locals along with the expats and enjoying some tasty food. I am not a kimchi fan but love the pork dumplings. Seoul is fun with a mix of the old and new. Thanks for sharing! #feetdotravel
