  1. Hi, all these can be found in which part of Busan? Do you have the restaurant name? I’m traveling with my friend and we plan to try these.

    1. Hi JT,

      Most of this food can pretty much be found anywhere in Korea. While in Busan, you should try Pork Rice Soup ( Dwaeji Gukbap 돼지국밥 ), Ggom Jangeo ( Hagfish 꼼장어 ) – try this at Jagalchi Fish Market and Seeded Pancake ( Ssiat Hotteok 씨앗호떡 ). The bread buns in this post are in Daejeon, which is about 2 hours away by train. Also, because Busan is port city, raw seafood is a must ( 회 ).

      You can also reference this post while you are in Korea as I have provided the Korean names of these dishes as well.

      Hope that helps 🙂
