    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Jeongdaepo, 183-8 Dohwa-dong, Mapo-gu, Seoul, South Korea

    Featured on "Parts Unknown with Anthony Bourdain," this is a local Korean BBQ stop that specializes in a unique specialty, Mapo-style Galmegisal. It's pork skirt steak grilled over charcoals with a moat of egg surrounding it.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Cheonghakdong pancake, 23 Mallijae-ro, Ahyeon-dong, Mapo-gu, Seoul, South Korea

    After a browse of the pancake market, we take you through our "secret Harry Potter entrance" to the upstairs pub. There we will gorge on a variety of griddled and fried treats while taking a crash course on the 3,000-year lauded history of Korean alcohol.

    Duration: 2 hours
