HELLO KOREA 2022/2023 DAY 4: BUSAN – Jagalchi Fish Market, Nambo Hotteok, and Bye Busan!

[Travel in December 2022 – January 2023]

Although, I didn’t plan to eat here, I just want to come here and have a look after so many years. But I am so tempted to buy everything to eat! 🙂

Lelong lelong!
I think this is eel!
really many many stores!
Dried goods too!
This actually looks good!
I saw a documentary on how fast one prepare this haha

Jagalchi Market (Building)

Walking around to explore a little more here. During my 2014 trip here, I did have my lunch here too! As Busan is at the sea port, so you will get all the fresh seafood here. So, do remembered have a seafood meal in Busan is a must hehe 🙂

I cant remembered if I actually come over to this side of the building or not. haha
everywhere in Busan seems to have this kind of photo opp hahaf
few days I was just opposite here!
Flying without wind!
Great place to do nothing and just stare haha

Let’s go inside now 🙂

a very neat wet market!
what do you want?
we have all kinds of seafood!
take a seat! 🙂
like this 🙂
all fancy steamboat!

Goraesa Fishcake Shop (고래사어묵 자갈치점)

Do yourself a favour, all these store are not available in Seoul, so time to get some fishcake here! 🙂

Excited to be here!
I not sure what to buy because, I am not sure about my luggage weight haha

Nampo Street Food – Hotteok!

Come Busan must eat Busan’s Hotteok, because they really they taste better than anywhere else. And this is also reason why, I don’t eat any hotteok after having the one in Busan many years ago.

But, I don’t know which one is the “Lee Seunggi’s mom” hotteok, I only know everywhere also say they are “Original” hahahahahaha!

oh the queue
cant wait for my turn!
Paid for mine!
I didn’t know of this has a indoor version. SO HAPPENING LEH

After this, I headed back to my hotel and checked out, relaxed abit. Benefit of staying really next to station will be, able not rush out and worried about the timing. And this, I conclude my Busan travel this trip. Thank you Busan! 🙂

Hui Jia Le!
