If you are looking for a place where you will eat real Korean food with nothing but locals, definitely head out to Hong Gi Wa Zip in the Hongdae area. They offer the unmissable Sambyetang, as well as some Korean classics such as Kamjatang, Possam and Takdori.

For those looking for the best meat in Seoul, the place to be is the Maple Tree House in Itaewon area. It may be on the pricy end of the spectrum, but the quality of the meat and the preparation is more than worth it. One of the best Korean BBQ places in the city.

Na Ri Sik Dang is another small, local-type place where you can fill your belly with great food at a reasonable price. Meals to try there include the Bean Paste Stew and the BBQ pork belly. Sigol Bapsang is a traditional Korean restaurant where you can get a taste of 30 banchans that Korea is famous for. A great thing about Sigol Bapsang is that it is open 24/7.

Another restaurant that you simply must not miss when in Seoul is Tosokchon Ginseng Chicken. They serve the best ginseng chicken in the city. This is a dish many restaurants pride themselves on but most are subpar compared to the one you can eat here.
