Myeongdong is one of the most popular tourist destination in Seoul. Known as the shopping district, it is booming with various major departments stores, restaurants, themed cafes, cosmetic shops and of course street foods.
On our second night in Seoul, we visited Myeongdong night market and tried various street food while strolling the street. Here are our recommendations on Must try street food in Myeongdong.
On our fourth day, after our visit at NSeoul Tower , we decided to stop by in Myeongdong and tried other streetfoods and visited themed cafes available in the area.
HOW TO GET TO MYEONGDONG STREETFOOD MARKET
From Myeongdong Subway Line 4, depart to exit 6 or exit 8.
Upon subway exit is the vast amount of food cart stalls selling various Korean streetfoods, boutiques with latest fashion trends, popular cosmetic stores with a lot of discounted items (calling all kikays out there!) and freebies, bunch of cute souvenirs , bright lights on each stores and flock of local and foreign tourists roaming around the district.
On our first visit in Myeongdong (on our 2nd night), we found this 2 cuties standing on the center aisle of the street. They really caught our attention as they are wearing life-size dog and cat costumes! Actually this a marketing ad for a dog and cat café in Myeondong. Approach them if you want to visit the café and they are more willing to send you on their exact café place.
But when we get there on our fourth day, we didn’t find either of this 2 on the subway exit, so we just google map’d site their and luckily we stumbled on another themed café in Myedongdong – Hello Kitty Cafe!
3 UNIQUE THEMED CAFES IN MYEONGDONG
1. Myeongdong Subway Line 4 Exit 6
2. Gaene Dog Cafe
3. Hello Kitty Cafe (STORE ALREADY CLOSED!)
4. Godabang Cat Cafe
One thing that I’ve noticed in Korea is how they loved local coffee. Please notice that in every corner, there are atleast one local coffee shop available (I’m talking about non-mainstream café here). If you’re already tired strolling and shopping in Myeongdong, hang out and relax on one of the cafes available there.
