If you’re looking for fresh seafood, you need to go to Jagalchi Fish Market.
When you exit the Jagalchi subway station, the wind will blow and it will leave the essences of the ocean. That’s how fresh the seafood is at Jagalchi.
The market is just right beside the fishing docks. As soon as the ships come in, they goods are directly transferred to the market.
You have big crabs!
And delicious looking shell fish!
Aside from those selling by the street, there’s also a building for it.
And it’s the cleanest wet market I’ve seen ever. On the upper floors are eating areas where they will cook the fish for you.
We wanted to try it for the experience but our finances did not allow it. One person will have to pay at least W30,000 for a meal. There are regulations about food in Korea and two people may not be allowed to share a meal.
It would have been a nice experience. The food court allows customers to sit in mats and eat at a low table while overlooking the ocean.
