Recently, your homeboy Keith was able to go to Seoul’s famous Noryangjin Fish Market to eat some of the freshest fish in Seoul. If you like old school markets and good food, watch this video to see what to get, and how it works!
There are tons of vendors at Noryangjin Fish Market, so it’s a little difficult to choose. The best way is by price as bargaining is considered normal practice. Once you pick and pay for your seafood, the vendor will slice the fish/seafood for you and then lead you to a restaurant (if you don’t already have one in mind). Once there, you’ll get a seat and be able to order drinks, rice, and anything else you might need. The restaurant can also cook the food that needs to be cooked (for a small fee). It’s a fun experience to see the older and more rustic/back-alley side of Seoul.
Here are some of the items found in this video (and their prices!):
– 해삼 (haesam) – sea cucumber (20,000 won)
– 멍게 (meongge) – sea squirt (20,000 won)
– 광어회 (gwangeo hwe) – raw slices of flatfish (flounder/fluke??) (40,000 won)
– 킹 크랩 (king keuraep) – king crab (50,000 won)
– 매운탕 (maeuntang) – soup made from the remaining fish parts (5,000 won for cooking fee)
Have any questions? Interested in seeing other parts of Seoul in future videos? Feel free to leave a comment!
