People come to Seoul, and they usually end up in Myeong-dong. All that shopping makes one hungry.
The trouble is that a lot of the good restaurants in Myeong-dong are gone. It’s a lot like Times Square in New York. Bland overpriced disappointments catering to the weary and uninformed. The famous restaurants get business just for being famous, even though there are better places just a couple streets away.
I’ve written a quick Myeong-dong restaurant guide on Korea Food Tours to help you out.
