Gamcheon Cultural Village is known for its beautiful, colorful buildings and winding alleys. It’s a popular tourist destination and decorates the side of a hill in the city. But Sam and I were there to have some street food!
We started at a booth selling fish-shaped waffles with red bean paste inside. I’d had something similar in Japan. You get three for 1,000 won/$0.82 USD, so it was a good deal! They’re crunchy on the outside and nice and doughy on the inside. I loved it!
A few feet away, we found shrimp on a stick with a fish cake. The vendor covered it in ketchup and mustard. It cost 3,000 won/$2.46 USD. It was very different. I couldn’t tell what it was. It was spongy and contained some vegetables, but was otherwise mediocre.
As we headed onward to find more street food, we passed through the village. There were lots of murals, stores, and souvenir shops. The temperature was nice and pleasant, and the area was very interesting!
We had quickly visited Gamcheon Cultural Village a few days earlier with our group. There were wall-to-wall tourists then, but there were none this time around. It was nice to get to explore it properly!
We found a stand selling goat melon. The melon was very refreshing and crunchy!
Because it was Sunday, there weren’t many shops open. I wanted something savory, but we kept coming across sweet things like cotton candy and ice cream. But then we came across a stall selling a strange-looking orange gelatin ball. The vendor served it with a mango sauce and crushed peanuts. I also got a frozen beer on the side.
It was weird! It was Jell-O with powdered peanuts and mango sauce. I was in love with it! It was really unique. The frozen beer was like a slushie with honey on top and was weird! The Jell-O ball cost 3,000 won each, while the frozen beer was 4,500/$3.69.
Across from the stand selling the Jell-O balls was a spot with one of the best views of Gamcheon Cultural Village. The vibrant colors were on full display, and I could see the mountains in the background. A few minutes later, we found a lookout point with even better views. We had panoramic views of the entire city and the ocean.
We doubled back to find more good food, though some of the places were closing. I don’t recommend coming to Gamcheon Cultural Village on a Sunday evening. Instead, come in the morning when everything is open.
We headed down the mountain and rode to an area where we had street food a few days earlier. We ended up at Galmegi Brewing Co., a craft beer bar. I got a rye IPA, which was delicious. It was hoppy and had a nice, rye flavor.
Overall, the street food was some of the worst I’ve ever eaten, but it was an experience! If you liked coming along with us, please give this video a thumbs up and leave me a comment. Also, please subscribe to my channel, so you don’t miss any of my upcoming travel/food adventures.
