Traveling around any new country is always a fascinating experience, but discovering a new culture through eating its delicious food is something truly special. Sure, we have Michelin-starred restaurants in Seoul, but if you’re wondering where to eat in Seoul my recommendation would be to ditch your Seoul restaurant guide and dive into the local dishes.
From our incredible street food in Seoul to even finding cheap food in Gangnam, if you eat like a local you’ll discover a whole new world of flavors and eating experiences. You’ll get so much more out of your time here and understand our culture even more through trying dishes visitors don’t usually find. So here are my local tips for places to eat in Seoul for anyone who’s looking not for fancy restaurants or famous places to eat, but for unique restaurants in Seoul, South Korea where you’ll be made to feel like a local yourself.
