Experience Korean street foods and the famous K-BBQ in the heart of the university area of Sinchon!

Approximate walking distance: 2km (가제)
4 stops 


Come discover Korea’s most celebrated foods in the university area of Sinchon with local guides! We will discover the hip and young area of Seoul which is buzzing with young students and artists. Once known as the experiential hub of Korea, a lot of “firsts” in Korea’s food industry have their roots in Sinchon! 

Going around the buzzing evening streets of Sinchon, you will try classic Korean street foods, Tteobbeokki (spicy rice cakes) and Oemug (fishcake), Korean sweet and savory fried foods, the famous Korean barbeque and to finish it off, a classic Korean dessert, Bingsu. For the ones who are adventurous out there, we have some special surprises too! 

We will also bring you to the beautiful railway track that is now turned into a 6.3km long park! 

The tour includes one alcoholic/non-alcoholic beverage for each customer at the barbeque restaurant! As we would be eating at street food stands as well, you may want to carry water with you. 

Since the tour includes some traditional Korean food items, it would be difficult to accommodate special dietary requirements.

1. We meet at the Sinchon station and begin our journey with looking at some old photos of the Sinchon station and learning about its history.

5. The next stop lies in the heart of Sinchon which is bustling with young Korean university students.
