Seafood from Noryangjin

Just a couple of things I ate while I visited Noryangjin Fish Market in Seoul. Crab shell filled with seafood fried rice and live octopus cut onto a plate (yes, it’s true!). These photos can also be seen in my first published article in the very first issue of Bridge Paperzine! I’m so happy to be a small part of ROKing Magazine/Bridge. I’ll post more information and photos of the publication once I get my hands on a hard copy!

Noryangjin Market, Seoul

Noryangjin Fish Market is a famous market in Seoul. One unique thing about this place is that buyers can purchase their seafood/veggies on the ground floor then take it up to the second floor to have a restaurant cook it for them. People can request restaurants to prepare the seafood in any way they prefer. It’s an interesting experience that locals and tourists alike would appreciate. Vendors call out specials or sales while customers walk by and even then the prices can still be bartered – this makes for a lively market experience worth having.
