Restaurant only has 4 items on the menu so if you can, order everything and try. I liked the mandus best. Plump and juicy, the mandus contained a good meat to fat ratio. Hand-cut noodles were good too. The place is featured on the Michelin...More

You go here for the gyoza. Plain and simple. It's a popular restaurant, so you can expect a line, but the turnaround is fast so don't despair. Walk in, order off the very limited menu (remember, you are there for the gyoza), pay in advance,...More

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
