Gwangjang Market-Explore the Korean food-Part 1


My home is quite far from the Gwangjang market, but I had a chance to visit the north part of the Seoul to buy clothes, and on a way home I visited the Gwangjang Market.

This is the Seoul map and the Gwangjang market is in the red part. The arrow in the picture says Gwangjang market Korean pancake, raw beef, drug Kimbab(광장시장 전&육회&마약김밥).


After I entered the market I could see lots of people are in there.

After I passed the other market I finally went in the food market part! In Gwangjang market the below three foods are famous.

1. Drug Kimbab(마약김밥)

The reason why the drug is in the name is not it has the drug inside but it means the Kimbab is really tasty and is easy to be addicted to the drug. The size of Drug kimbab is smaller than other normal Korean Kimbab.

2. Bindaetteok(빈대떡)

Bindaetteok(빈대떡)is the mung-bean pancake and it is one of the famous traditional Korean pancakes.

3. Korean Style Raw Beef(육회)


The way of eating the Raw beef is first mix the raw beef with the egg and then eat! You can check the pictures of the step is in below.

Many people also eat the Raw Tartare Bibimbap(육회 비빔밥).

The difference of Raw tartare Bibimbap and the normal Korean Bibimbap is just the Raw Beef was added in ingredient.
