A Food Lover’s Guide to Busan – Set Out on Your Food Expedition

If you’ve got the palate to handle all kinds of bizarre food on your travels, well look no further than Busan. The exotic traditional food here will challenge your tongue with its mind-blowing flavours and ingredients. Here’s all you need to know about where to find these unique dishes.

 

Gukje Market

From being a place where refugees would exchange goods back in the 1950s during wartime, Gukje Market has transformed into one of the most popular traditional markets in the city. The wayside food boutiques offer a delicious array of Korean traditional food such as kimbap which is steamed white rice wrapped in dried seaweed and sundae also referred to as blood sausage and many noodle dishes too!

BIFF Square

Amongst the memorabilia of the Korean film industry are the small shops and stalls that sell some of the best Korean street food. One snack that you are sure to get addicted to is ssiat hotteok. This sweet treat is a Korean style pancake with a stuffing of seeds, honey, brown sugar and peanuts. The Busan version of the hotteok is more chewy and crunchier than the usual. Certainly, makes an impact on your taste buds!

 

Jagalchi Market

A short walk away from BIFF Square is Jagalchi Market, downstairs you will find fresh fish in all shapes and sizes to choose from. Take your pick from the wide choice and take it right upstairs. Here, get your favourite Korean seafood dish prepared by the many stalls available. Once this is done all there is left to do is to grab those chopsticks and dig in!

Gamcheon Cultural Village

If you are staying in Busan apartments, perhaps the likes of Citadines Haeundae Busan, well step out of the typical city and step into one filled with vibrant colours giving out a fantasy feel. Gamcheon Cultural Village is a famous tourist attraction and is the best place to find patbingsu which is the Korean version of shaved ice cream topped with yummy sweet treats like condensed milk and red beans.
