  • Great market! Look for the modern coffee shop and ask for a lemon espresso and eat a ssiat hotteok. If you’re there in the winter they still do the old fashioned sweet potatoes which are amazing.

  • Amazing place for fresh seafood! Not only can you buy it but you can go upstairs and have them prepare it for you right away. Some of the workers are a pretty aggressive so if you just wanna look around and aren't interested in making a purchase, try not to make eye contact.
  • Varieties of seafoods available on ground floor. 1st floor got many restaurant provides the fresh seafood dish. Ask the price before place order. Might be pricey
