Day 2 of our Seoul adventure saw us exploring the cultural side of Korea! We woke up for some samgyetang!
We paid Tosokchon a visit. Apparently it's a very famous restaurant which specalises in samgyetang.
Tosokchon is located near Gyeongbokgung Station (line 3), exit 2. Once you come out of the station, walk straight all the way. You'll see Baskin Robbins, Popeyes along the way. Walk till a GS25 mart and turn left onto Jahamun-ro 5-gil and you'll see Tosokchon!
Okay, this was taken when I finished my meal. We were really lucky there wasn't any queue yet.
We had seafood jeon (pancake) and black chicken stew with ginseng.
Don't worry about the language barrier for there is none! The staff speaks Mandarin and English as well :)
After filling our stomachs, we made our way to Bukchon Hanok Village! It's a subway station away from where Tosokchon is and we were lazy to walk so we took the train =X To get to Bukchon Hanok Village, take the subway to Anguk Station (line 3), exit 2. Walk straight all the way after coming up from the station and you'll hit the tourist centre already.
We got a map which gave us a route to take in order to catch the photo points and the different tourist attractions.
Lots of tourists!
We finished the route and decided to stop by a cafe for a break.
Bukchon Hanok Village is quite near to Insadong so we thought we'd just walk over.
Came across some street performance! This man was really entertaining and a huge crowd formed around him. He got some random people to help him with his performance and they were really enthusiastic!
Cross the road and ta-da, Insadong!
The roof was where I wanted to go!
This time round, A and I got one for ourselves! There are several designs for you to choose from. It cost about 5,000won. An area was allocated for customers to write and they even had a couple of heater fans. That was very thoughtful.
Okay, he took up most of the space so I had to summarize mine. Lol.
This bowl of jjajangmyeon cost 3,000won. It was soooo much bigger than the one we had in Myeong Dong the day before.
