Overview
Discover the cultural and culinary fusion of Seoul’s bustling Mangwon neighborhood on a private nighttime food and drink tour. Follow your guide to the local street food stalls of Mangwon Market that have defined the area for decades. Later, try Korean BBQ, savoy pancakes, dakgalbi (marinated chicken), and more. Wash all of it down with a rice beer, while you learn about the area’s metamorphosis into the city's hipster epicenter.

Daniel's tour is great, and Daniel is a fun person to hang out with for a few hours. The BBQ restaurant was awesome, and after some street food, you will leave the tour full!

Daniel was an excellent host! Tried lots of different options and each one was delicious and better than anything we found on our own. Highly recommend this, but bring your appetite! My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed this.
