Chinatown: Foodies rejoice!

All over Chinatown, you can find many eateries, bakeries and shops selling street snacks. Walk up the main road from the Paeru (entry gate) until you reach the T-shaped alley. To the right of the alley, you’ll find many food stalls selling baked goods and sweets. Try the moon pie (KRW 2,000), a delicious treat filled with sweet bean paste and a variety of flavored creams like green tea or cheese. The line to get one might seem long, but it’s worth the wait.
