Review Summary:

Even if you don't eat here, it's worth it to check out the colorful Korean pancake market below. It's lines of pancakes and fried bits and pieces for taking home or enjoying upstars. The name is a mouthful, but it means "The Original Mapo Grandmother Mung Bean Pancake." Their mung bean pancakes (bindaeddeok) are quite fine, but the crowd pleasers are the modeum twigim (tempura sampler) and modeum jeon (pancake sampler). Enjoy these with some makkolli or draft beer. It's a popular place for locals, especially college students. And it's a great place to really get a feel for the Korean lifestyle.

NOTE: This stop is part of ZenKimchi's Ultimate Korean BBQ Experience tour.
