Opposite BIFF Square is the famous Jagalchi Market. Hence, BIFF Square can be accessed via Nampo subway station or Jagalchi subway station. Since we stayed near to Busan subway station, hence we went to Nampo station, took the Exit 7 and walked to BIFF Square.

I read that this area used to be the opening ceremony for the annual Busan International Film Festival. It was also the location for hand printing of famous movie celebrities and directors. When I reached here, I saw many hand prints on the floor were being ignored and stepped by many visitors. Now this area is a street food heaven.

We tried Ssiat hotteok, also known as seed-stuffed pancake. The cost was KRW1300. This pancake/deep-fried dough was stuffed with spoonful of pine nuts, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds. This pancake with brown sugar filling inside taste sweet and nutty. A must try if you visit BIFF Square. We ate mandu- dumplings with steamed and pan-fried styles. 6 pieces of mandu cost us KRW2000. In addition, we also ate a piece of korean egg bread or its korean name 'Gyeran-ppang'. The cost is KRW1000, with cheese the price is KRW2000. This egg cheese bread tasted sweet with fluffy little loaf of bread-like texture was not to our liking. We then ate some fried items that cost us KRW2000. The lady re-fried the items, only the sweet potato was up to our expectation.

Filled with tourists and school girls. Not really our scene but fun to walk through. Got one of those seed filled pastries ($1.50) everyone seemed to be getting and they were alright. Tried the dumplings too ($5 for a plate). Nothing too special. All food stalls were the same (fish cakes, rice cakes, dumplings and seed pastries). Overall overrated imo but if you’re in the area, it’s nice to walk through and feel the energy.

As soon as you get inside of this place, you'll find a series of red parasols along the street.
There are street food makers and on the other side are fortune tellers.
My friend and I, we finished our dinner here including Dak-Kkochi (grilled chicken) and tornado-shaped potatoes...blah blah blah.
The fortune tellers they provide various kinds of things such as; asian traditional fortune reading (birthday required), astrology, tarot cards.

Loved this place. Full of character and interesting. Don't forget to look out for the bronze structures e.g. A pig, elephant, etc. These structures are placed randomly on sidewalks where u least expect it. Los of street food, too.
