Gyeongbokgung was originally built during Korea's Joseon dynasty, first meant to house King Taejo. The original was destroyed by the Japanese, but the palace and the grounds have been restored beautifully. Today, the palace sits just to the west of the lovely Seochon neighborhood, north of Insadong, and near the historical Bukchon neighborhood. It's proximity to these places, as well ...

    폴바셋 (Paul Bassett)

    Popular place for the office workers nearby. Located in between several office buildings. Relatively good coffee for the price (if you consider coffee is very expensive in Seoul). Window seat is good place for people watching. You can see Oman Embassy from here.

    One of my regular feeding grounds. A great place to come after Hiking on Inwangsan, visiting Samcheong Dong or the palaces, this restaurant is a franchise found all across the world but they all have their own style. This one serves vegan versions of Korean food in a traditional Korean house and has a freezer cabinet of veggie-Korean products you ...

    김밥천국 Kimbap Cheonguk

    1.32 mi from Gyeongbokgung
    5 reviews

    A chain of eateries so common that you can often see one whilst standing in the doorway of another, Kimbap Cheonguk (look for the orange sign reading '김밥천국') is delicious, dirt cheap, and probably the single best introduction to Korean food that you can find in Seoul. You'll never spend more than 5000W for a meal, but the menu is ...

    For out-of-this-world mondu (dumplings) and kalguksu (wheat noodle soup), this popular restaurant is the place to. Yes, there's always a line out the door and down the street, but it moves quickly. The kongguksu (soy bean and milk noodle soup) is also worth a try, particularly during the summer months when this cold and creamy soup is a refreshing treat. ...

    This 4-story cafe includes a bakery, sells gelato and serves lunch and dinner. Each floor has a different theme, too. They are awesome all across the board - well prepared drinks, unique baked goods and delicious pastries! Their prices are a bit high, but with good reason.

    Zelen is a Bulgarian restaurant. The food is pretty meat and cheese heavy. I got a broccoli cheese stew that was mostly cheese and cream. It was really delicious. Everyone enjoyed their food here. Probably not good for vegans.

    New Korean BBQ restaurant. Creative menu, and very clean! Now this is the hottest restaurant in Sinchon area. Crews are super friendly, and the vegetables are amazing here. Seafood soup is good (and very generous portion). If you are heading to Sinchon and want to have some BBQ, try Palsaik Samgyupsal!

    Homey, fusion cafe. I love coming here to meet people or just to work as they have comfy cushions and plentiful plug sockets. They only offer a handful of main dishes but they are all tasty. The chickpea salad and the perilla pasta probably top the list, but the real treat is the impressive array of vegan friendly hot drinks ...
