Your Best Travel Guide to Korea and Some Say More!

인사동 누룩나무

[Travel in March / April 2018]

As I was staying with IBIS Hotel on my first night, and gonna waking up like 5am next day. We decided to have a lighter dinner – Seafood pajeon. Hence, I went research and see if we can get anything along Myeongdong and Insadong which is pretty near to our place! 🙂 So glad to explore the small alley at Insadong for this new food find! 🙂

In one of the quiet alleys at Insadong that sat many traditional-looking restaurant…
My friend loves the side dishes!
The sides that comes with fried tofu makes me a little excited!
Nakji JutGal, spicy pickled octopus, which I always bag home from Gwangjang market! (My brother finished 1kg of it within a week -.-)
Seafood pajeon

Seafood pajeon that was awesomely tasty! The octopus was very savoury, very well-cooked and accompanied with crunchy leek that give out a very refreshing taste. Most of the pajeon we ate (in singapore) are very powdery and thick which we hardly get the real taste of the seafood/leek. This is so good with additional light flavour from the chili.
