Random Travel Advice for Korea - Part III: Seoul Must Eats

And lastly, Seoul Must-eats:
-Toseokchon Samgyetang: herbal chicken soup (whole Cornish hen stuffed with glutinous rice); this particular joint is famous b/c a former president loved it. Located near the Gwanghwamun area.
-Saemaul Shikdang: a chain, but a great intro to some of Korea's staples. I recommend ordering the 7-minyte kimchi stew and the coal-bbq-marinated pork. There are locations mostly in Hongdae.
-Myeongdong Gyoza: famous for its kalguksu (knife-cut noodles): the pork broth is delicious though suuuper rich (I can't stomach more than half a bowl), but this restaurant is super popular. Located in Myeongdong.
-Bingsu: Bingsu is Korean shaved ice. It's pretty easy to find in the summer but go to Seolbing (it's a chain so it has many locations, and will usually have at least one location in each major tourist area). I recommend ALL of the bingsus, and trying the injeolmi toast.
-KFC: Korean fried chicken (and beer)! I think Korean fried chicken tastes way better than American, and there are plenty of joints around. Kyochon is reliably decent if you’re having trouble picking or finding one.
-Hanwoo: Hanwoo beef is domestic Korean beef; it’s expensive, but delicious; I never ate at Hanwoo restaurants because it wasn’t in my budget, but I’ve heard good things about Byeokjae Galbi.
