During this two and half hours experience you will discover Gwangjang Market, one of the oldest wholesale markets still remaining in Seoul. The market is well known for its street food by locals, but is still undiscovered by tourists. From the market we will carry on to Ikseondong, a hidden area with modern hanok village mainly known by the young generations. Here we will enjoy true local food, the way it has been made for decades. We will finish in Korean medical herbal tea house, a non touristic area filled with authentic shops and restaurants. At each location we will make a brief stop, including a sampling of a local dish and the history of that dish. During the experience, you will have the opportunity to try around five dishes and two drinks. If you have any other dietary restrictions(vegetarian/vegan/pescetarian etc), please contact us in advance!
I learned cooking at an early age, endlessly trying different Korean recipes. With my passion for food I created my own travel company. This allows me to meet many foreigners and chefs who both inspire and advise me on how to prepare foreign food. I currently work on introducing Korean food and food culture to foreigners by hosting supper clubs and giving food tours. I enjoy tasting different foods from restaurants and markets, trying to discover their ingredients and ways of cooking.
Tasting food and drinks We will try 5 snacks and 2 drinks.
We will start at Gwangjang Market, continue to Ikseondong, and finish in medical herbal tea house. Along the way we will see the Jongmyo shrine.
