In this guide, we’re going to share with you tips to exploring Seoul, the best specific areas, activities you can do, and hopefully, it can help you to plan your daily itinerary in Seoul.
There are a lot of amazing things about Seoul, but for food lovers, it’s the never-ending amount of delicious food that makes Seoul such an exciting city. With an abundance of food options, Seoul offers everything from small traditional street food stands serving basic rice and vegetable dishes to up-market restaurants with comprehensive menus.
Fried chicken is undoubtedly one of the most common food that you can find in Seoul. There are a lot of fried chicken chain with their various specialties. It’s also very hard to find a chicken that clearly outshines the rest because the industry there is so well developed. Most of them offer Chimaek (Fried Chicken and Beer), but we found Chicken & Curry Goon (치킨앤 카레군) in Hongdae area that offers a different style of Korean Fried Chicken.
In the super rapidly changing Korea, we get to see new trends and new items every day, including their street food. During our #FoodInLoveKOREA trip, one of our best findings is Steak & Beer in a cup from “Me? Steak!” in Hongdae area. These “Street Steakhouses” that sell properly grilled steak in a cup is the recently rising dining trend in Korea, just like soft serve milk ice cream not long ago.
In Korea, there was a huge surge of popularity over soft serve ice cream some while ago, especially those served with real honeycomb. The popularity of the ice cream started around 2013 and now there are many companies and individual vendors offering soft serve vanilla ice cream with real honeycomb, but the original brand that started the trend is “Softree”.
LINE is an amazing brand and establishment, what started out as a chatting and messenger platform with its characters of Brown, Cony, Moon, James, Sally, and Leonard well-loved by so many. LINE FRIENDS Store & Cafe in Sinsadong, Garosu-gil Seoul is the first flagship and largest LINE Friends store in the world. If you are planning to travel to Seoul, this place could be one of your destinations.
