What to eat in Seoul? Seoul Food Post (Oct 2013)

What to eat in Seoul? Here is a small guide on what I have ate during this year Seoul trip!
Sinchon Station
Palsaik Samgyupsal (팔색 삼겹살)
Sinchon Station (Line 2 Exit 6) Walk straight until you see the crossroad then cross the street walk further down for 10 minutes the shop is located on your right.
This restaurant is real famous! It offers 8 flavours of Samgyupsal and gosh this is the best Samgyupsal that I had ever taste in my life (real soft & tender). When you order it comes with a seafood soup (soup are fresh) set.

Beside this you can try the Choon Chun Jip Dak Galbi too.
Gyeongbokgung station
We came across this stall at Gyeongbokgung station (Line 3 Exit 2 ) selling Premium Walnut Pastry and it was 3000 won for 12 pieces and is delicious the filling is red bean paste with premium walnut.

Next we went to the famous Tosokchon that sells ginseng chicken! From Gyeongbokgung station (Line 3 Exit 2 ) and walk further 5 minutes you will see Tosokchon on your right side. Was so lucky when we went there was no crowd and we do not even need to queue! That time was 11+am and when we were out of the restaurant the queue was incredibly long!

Angguk Station (Line 3 Exit 1) or Gyeongbokgung station (Line 3 Exit 1). The shop is just located right opposite Beans Bin Cafe. (Just find Samcheong-dong Beans Bin Cafe and you will reach the shop)

Is a small tea house and quite famous around the local. We order "patjuk" which means red bean porridge which cost 6000 won per bowl. Its best match with the mochi they gave the taste very traditional. What I observe is that all the locals order this as well.
