Korea Night Dining Tour this Saturday Night April 10th, 2010

The first tour on Friday Night is almost sold out. If you would like to come to the Friday one, please hurry. If you would like to come this weekend, we are going to do a second one on Saturday Night at 7pm.


No visit to Korea would be complete without experiencing the kinetic nightlife scene. Since many visitors will be just arriving, this is the best way to overcome jet lag. Our tour will introduce visitors to Korea's exciting drinking culture and some of the best night time dining areas in Korea. The tour will explore the Jongno 3-ga area, which used to be the busiest area of Seoul. This area has not been gentrified like other parts of Seoul and has a thriving nightlife and exciting underground scene. Here you'll see the real Korea. These tours will run every Friday Night as long as there is at least 4 people interested in participating.

The tour will start with a visit to a visit to a Korean Drinking Tent (Pojangmacha). You'll be introduced to drinking food with traditional Korean alcohol such as soju and chungha.

Then you'll go to a pork barbecue restaurant specializing in garmaeggisal: a special cut of pork located near the pig's diaphragm. Here we'll have pork barbecue with beer and soju and learn different Soju bomb drinks (Potanju) while playing drinking games.

After the barbecue restaurant, you'll be given a brief tour of the colorful Jongno 3-ga area to find hidden eateries and drinking establishments. The third place will be a local rice wine bar (makgeolli) place to try a couple different makgeollis with Korean pancake (Pajeon).

Tour Schedule:
7pm: Visit to a Tent Restaurant
