Their best restaurant is Yankees Burgers in Mullae. The best burger on the short menu is Mullae Burger 2, which is priced at $7. The other dishes on the menu are pizza, pasta, and chicken wings.

Eat fresh seafood at Noryangjin Fisheries Market
If you want to buy fresh seafood at a cheaper price, you must visit this market. When we visited Seoul in 2013, Noryangjin Fish Market was dark and wet. After the renovation, we were thrilled to see the high ceilings and the brightness and warmth of this place.

When you walk in, you notice too many choices of fish tanks and seafood. The live lobsters, crabs, shrimps, octopuses, clams, snow crabs, sea urchins, etc. Some stalls also offer sashimi.

Korea is famous for octopus, so you must try it. The restaurant cuts the octopus into small pieces and adds sesame oil. Yes, the octopus will move in the bowl. Slap a piece with chopsticks and chew, otherwise, the tentacles may stick to your mouth.
