Long queue during peak times, no queue before close around 6:30pm. The texture and taste of the meat were excellent. Definitely worth the 5 for 3500 won price.

Best kimchi filled mandu dumplings we've had so far in Seoul. The wrapper is thinner than most. Go to Namdaemun market gate 5, the stand is 1/3 of the way down on your left. You'll probably see the line. 10 dumplings for 7,000 KRW. We...More

Wonderful steamed dumplings that are typically not more than a few minutes old. I got there early enough to get four for breakfast (two pork, two kimchi), but when I went back later in the day and the next day, it was a mob scene.

As a recommendation from our local friend, we ordered a dozen of the wangmandu (large dumplings) for takeout. This is the type of food where you're sooo stuffed but you *must* have just ONE more because they're so damn delicious.

We were hungry when we walked through the market and stopped here for a snack as we saw them bring out of several huge platters of freshly steamed (HOT!) wangmandu (giant steamed dumplings). Your choice of spicy or non-spicy. They are minced pork and scallions...More

Myeongdong / Namdaemun
Arguably Seoul’s most famous neighbourhood and
undoubtedly one of its most popular, Myeongdong takes
shopping and eating to new heights, with hundreds of
shops, restaurants, and cafes all stacked on top of
one another. The rise in popularity of Korean
cosmetics, fashion, and more has made this area a
must-see for visitors who come and marvel at
Myeongdong’s often frenetic pace and energy. Lotte and
