2. Teppanyaki

Teppanyaki is a Japanese cooking method that uses an iron griddle to quickly cook food. It is one of the most well-loved types of street food in Myeongdong. Even when walking down the street with so many stalls with scrumptious food, it is impossible not to stop for the sizzling steak on the flat iron – who says you have to dress fancy and go to luxurious steakhouses for good steaks?

3. Desserts or sweet snacks

After having all the stomach-filling savory food, you could still stop there to satisfy your sweet tooth. Want to have a sweet local experience? Try “sikhye”! It is a beverage that is made from malt and rice. Sounds weird to you? Well, not for thousands of Koreans as the drink is one of the most beloved traditional sweet food in the country. Take a walk around the area for instagrammable rose-shaped gelato, Oreo flavored churros with cream cheese and globally-loved Nutella crepes.
