Best places to visit during the Lunar New Year holidays – 1078

The first “Lunar New Year” of the new year is a big holiday where the whole family gathers. The custom of everyone sitting around talking about dorando and eating food one after another, including rice cake soup, is still going on, but it is true that it has changed little by little over time. This year, how about taking advantage of the Lunar New Year holidays to visit restaurants you haven't visited before because of the crowds?

â–²Location: 154, Dasan-ro, Jung-gu â–²Opening hours: 24 hours â–²Price: Yakiniku 13,000 won â–²Review (Shikigin Yomiyomikiyomi): It's a bit chewy, but the seasoning is sweet, so it was fine to eat. If you want to eat meat, I think it's a great place to feel free to visit!

2. A memorable tteokbokki restaurant, 'Hyunseon Ine Main Store' in Yongsan

“Hyunseon Ine” is a food stall that went viral in the food stall village in front of Yongsan Station. The most popular menu is the “Hyunseon Ine Set,” where you can enjoy both tteokbokki, kamaboko, sundae, gimbap, and tempura. The point of the sweet-seasoned rice cake is its chewy texture. You can choose between mild and spicy tteokbokki, but the spiciness is more spicy than you might think. Please note that alcoholic beverages are also available.
