We will start by touring the Mapo food district, famous for its barbecue. Then it’s chow time with a stop at the epicenter of Mapo-style barbecue for some charcoal grilled pork, aged kimchi, and raucous atmosphere. Don’t fill up there because our next stop is our “shiksa,” the traditional tummy filler at the end of a barbecue meal. In this case it’s chilled buckwheat noodle Makguksu at a place that is an outpost of a famous Gangwon Province eatery. Trust me, you’ve never had noodles like these. We will then head to the Jeon Market for some Korean pancakes to chill for the evening.
