No matter where you are in Seoul, you will always find good food. Restaurants there specialize in one thing and they do it well. For example, we stopped in Myung Dong Kyoja (yes, there is also a Los Angeles location), and the line was out the door, but, as soon as you are in, you order one thing, it comes right away and there is no fiddling around–eat and go, give up your table to the next patient customer–or get the stare.
Not only restaurants, but, anywhere on the street…. good treats are often presented in an even more interesting way. I guess there has to be something to attract the masses. Like fashion, Seoul food is trendy, foods come and go and there is always something new.
