Next to Dongdaemun Market, there is an eating paradise near Cheonggyecheon Stream.
The Gwangjang Market is packed with foreign tourists, local office workers and young people flocking to the market during weekdays.
The most popular menu in Gwangjang Market is Bindaeteok(Korean Pancakes).
Especially, the crispy outside and soft inside of mung bean pancakes are the best food, as they are almost fried with a lot of the surface.
If you dip it in soy sauce with onions and cheongyang red pepper, it will make you feel less greasy and the savory taste will be doubled.
