It's autumn when all the grains are ripe. It's fall! As Chuseok gets closer, the grains and fruits are all dripping away. There are fish that play harder in the ocean. The main character is autumn seasonal seafood, which is unusually savory and fleshy. Versatile gizzards that can be eaten as sashimi, grilled, or as a sauce, prawns full of strength, blue crab full of fat and nutritious oysters called sea milk, and even mackerel that seems to make you smart when you eat it. Here are some restaurants where you can enjoy fresh seafood in a variety of ways for the fall season.
1. Seoul's autumn gizzards are here, Sungshin Women's University's 'Jeongokai Guryongpo Sashimi'
Located at the back of Seongbuk Ward Office, 'Jeongeokae Guryongpo Sashimi' is a seasonal sashimi shop that offers the freshest sashimi every season. In the fall, they sell âgizzard sashimi,â âgrilled gourd,â and âgourd sauceâ dishes using âgizzard.â The thickly sliced gourd sashimi and the sour gourd sauce are appealing to people's tastes. In particular, gourd sashimi is eaten dipped in samjang. It is said that you can feel the aroma on your stomach. If you visit without making a reservation in advance, there may not be a seat indoors, but we recommend enjoying a seat outside when the night breeze is nice. Since gizzards have a lot of thorns, it's difficult to eat them with children, so it's a good idea to keep this in mind when visiting.

4. Jeju's 'Manseon Diner, 'which can only be enjoyed when fresh
'Manseon Restaurant' is a specialty mackerel restaurant in Jeju located at Hamo Port. After all, the famous menu here is âmackerel sashimi.â Since fresh mackerel is freshly caught, it is characterized by a moderate amount of oil unique to mackerel flowing through it. The method of eating lightly seasoned rice wrapped in seaweed and putting mackerel sashimi on top of it is a delicious eating tip recommended by Mansun Restaurant. The combination of the fat of the mackerel paste and the seasoned rice gives off a rich flavor. The size is usually enough for 4 adults to eat when ordering a large portion. When you order mackerel sashimi, they serve salty pork along with raw, unprepared abalone.
