I am very excited because in this post, I am going to talk about food in my favorite city of all, Seoul! Yeay! In this post, I’ll talk about all the cheap but delicious food that can make you feel full for 5,000 won or less.
This is not a “where you should eat” post, unless I say so, because I don’t want to make any claim that a certain restaurant is the best in a particular dish or something to that effect. I’ll just share what I think you should eat when you are in Seoul so that you can also fully immerse yourself in Korean culture and not just thrive on convenience store food the whole time.
When I travel, there are days when I splurge on food but there are also times when I don’t, especially when I am still feeling bloated from eating a lot the previous day, or that I am saving up for a major gastronomic experience later in my itinerary. But if there’s one rule that I personally follow, it is that I don’t deprive myself when it comes to food. I don’t push my travel plans if I don’t have the budget to feed myself good food. Conversely, I don’t travel if I know that my budget will only allow me to eat convenience store food during my whole stay, or that I would skip snacks or coffee time because I will go over a certain budget. In short, when I travel, making food decisions is something that I take seriously.
And with that, let’s move on!
