Overview
More
We've shown Anthony Bourdain and Andrew Zimmern the best food in Seoul. Let us show you! ZenKimchi offers off-the-beaten-path Korean food tours for hardcore foodies. We have consulted and given tours to major TV shows, journalists, and corporations. We now share this experience to give culinary tourists the ultimate experience. We don't just give tours, we give you something to brag about to your friends. We are obsessed with the Korean dining scene, and we know the secret places that visitors want to try. Started as Korea's longest running Korean food blog in 2004, ZenKimchi has gotten recognition from The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Lonely Planet, The Washington Post, and more. We are one of the only tours in Seoul that accept single bookings. We are also great for groups, families, and couples.
