So this is going to be a short post.
Oh well, it was technically supposed to be a short post anyway, since I visited the market at night, and most of the hustle bustle activities were over already. It's okay, since I plan to revisit the place at an earlier time (perhaps on a weekend?) when I head over to Seoul again.
There were many stalls in the middle of the market, which is famed for having tons of Korean street food. But since I was with family, we settled on one of the restaurant in the market.
Surprisingly, we did not try the famed dish of Gwangjang market - 빈대떡 (bindaetteok), otherwise known as mung bean pancake. We did try 마약김밥 (mayak kimbap) though, which is named as drug kimbap because of its reputed addictiveness. Of course, we also ordered many other dishes as shown below.
마약김밥 (mayak kimbap)
두부 김치 (dubu kimchi); 파전 (pajeon)
제육볶음 (jeyuk bokkeum)
만두국 (mandu guk)
We ordered some beer to pair together with the spicy hearty dinner. And we were thoroughly stuffed to the brim (prob cos we overordered) at the end of the night. There were a few stragglers who were still tucking into their food at the market square when we left the place. I can't wait to revisit the market again just to experience the atmosphere when it is crowded.
I'm off to bed now at this unheard of time of 9.45pm, with hopes that I'll feel better tomorrow. Till then.
