Seoul - Ihwa-dong Mural Village & Gwangjang Market
So fast came to day six of our Seoul trip, which was also our 38th Monthsary 💑. Today's plans are Ihwa-dong Mural Village, followed by Gwangjang Market.
My man recommended this place for his art fanatic fiancee. I found so many lovely things here! 😍 From art piece to stationery, gadget accessories and living utensils. So many things I would love to buy from this store!!
We stumbled upon this small little restaurant next to 10X10 store. The noodles and the pancake was so yummy. And guess what? They provided Cili Padi!!! OMG! Such a precious food for typical Malaysian like me!
After the scrumptious meal, we walked toward Ihwa-dong Mural Village. We took some time to actually found this place. The road was uphill and pretty narrow, plus many people decided to just simply park along the way, this caused terrible traffic jam. The craziness in me decided to be a reporter. LOL.
Just for fun and hope you have a nice day! 😉
Oh no!!! Don't suicide!!
You can rent the uniform to tour around this area for photo shooting purpose.
Hehe~ The wings that bring us to happiness 💓
Stumbled upon this tiny store that sells ready made postcard, postcard customization and also postcard posting service. (In fact, I was attracted by the huge fatty cat, LOL)
This photo made no judgement for the cat as it is so much bigger!!! I should have stand next to it so you can see how big it is!!
Busy writing postcard to myself and also my elder sister that lived in Philippines.
The famous mural on the staircase - Fishes and Flowers have been demolished due to some uncivilized people who vandalized and destroyed the mural painting. It was pretty sad as the vandalism was quite bad, almost all paintings were washed away. 😡
The day was getting darker so we departed to Gwangjang Market for the local delicacies and also souvenirs to bring back to Malaysia.
My man saw many people ordered this Red Bean Porridge so he ordered too. And guess what, this is a savoury dish! LOL. No wonder the staff gave us a bowl of sugar. I can't accept the fact that red bean is cooked in savoury dish. I can't barely eat this.
Then here comes our exciting & adventurous part - LIVE OCTOPUS!!!
It was served with sesame oil, seaweed and sesame. One small live octopus costs 15,000 won.
Review after finished the octopus:
Worth trying out but I wouldn't eat for the second time as I too think is a little cruel.
We took away the famous seafood pancake and also 麻药饭卷 from Gwangjang Market. We also ordered a Green Tea Latte from the coffee shop below our apartment.
Our FIRST supper time! Why first? Because followed by second supper time after an hour. LOL.
The yummy chicken stick with spring onion, 3,500 won. There are many flavors to choose from, I have chosen the Spicy flavor. Really yummy!
Wicked GOLD from Wicked Snow. Okay, I have to confess that I am not a bingsu person. But this is a MUST TRY in Seoul! So soft and smooth that I don't feel like eating ice at all. I wonder how come Malaysia cannot have such smooth bingsu. They open till very late like 4am if not mistaken. We had this bingsu in 2am. LOL.
It was a food exploration day as we were eating non-stop. Next post we will be visiting Common Ground and also tour around Gangnam area. Stay tune!
