Don't go to any red tent where the price is not visible. I ate some fried pork and a pancake at one and then the owner tried to charge me 30,000 won for it = $30!! We argued for 15 minutes, she became extremely aggressive...More

Basically this whole place is food central with food stalls along the streets and restaurants and cafes on both sides. Watch out for traffic as you meander around the area as the road are still accessed by motor vehicles.
