For an excellent full-course Korean lunch, hit the quaint Baedongbaji in Samcheong-dong. For about $15 per person, you can sample many popular dishes like japchae (cellophane noodles stir-fried with sliced beef and veggies), doenjang jjigae (stew made with bean paste, tofu and veggies or meat) and sengsun ya-chae jeon (fried fish with vegetables). The restaurant is inside a hanok, or a small traditional wooden home, and is just a hop, skip and a jump from the three-way junction on the main road. Take subway line 3 to Anguk Station and take Exit 1.

For a great place to try the Korean specialty, kalbi, grilled marinated beef, check out Arirang Folk Restaurant directly behind the Westin Chosun Hotel. Take subway line 2 to Ulchiro 1-ga Station and get out at Exit 7.
