Eat like a local in Seoul

Food is a huge part of South Korean culture, so to really immerse yourself in city life you need to scout out the sikdang (restaurants) where locals eat - and to do that you’ll need a Host by your side! Feast on street eats, Korean bbq, food “towns” and centuries old dishes like kalguksu, a soup made of handmade noodles and anchovy-based broth or the city famous ‘garlic bomb chicken stew’! You’ll have the opportunity to see some of the coolest neighbourhoods like Insadong, famous for its street food creations, Ikseondong, a neighbourhood which is famous for its Hanok style cafe street and Jongno, a district known to be where you can find some of the best traditional dishes like dumplings and noodle soup. Within 24 hours of your booking, we will contact you to assign a like-minded Host who will create a bespoke experience for you. Your Host will suggest an itinerary and agree a meeting time and place, but you can always change your mind about what you want to do.
