Grilled fish is a better alternative to bbq beef amd pork-- healthier and more reasonably priced ($30 vs $80). The market is lined with several fish restaurants, so use your gutfeel to choose the best griller who can entice you to come inside their place.

I went on Sunday around 6 pm and the place was closed. No stalls were open for business. Quiet dissapointing because I really want to try their grilled fish and spicy octopus. Is it closed every Sunday or only for special occasion? I don't think...More

This is one of the best places for street food I found in Seoul. Since the location is quite central it's easy to reach.Close to the large fashion shopping mall and the Dongdaemun Palace.

If Gwanghwamun is the unofficial living room of Seoul,
Jongno is the main hallway connecting some of Seoul’s
most important historic sites and neighbourhoods.
Being one of Seoul’s oldest neighbourhoods, the area
is rich with history and culture in its palaces,
shrines, and temples. Stand in the centre of
Gwanghwamun Square with Gyeongbokgung Palace and Mt.
