What are some fun things to do in Seoul at night? Eat Korean street food like Patbingsu, Seoul BBQ, Gwangjang Market Food & more

This after-dark tour of Seoul's best eats will take you on a culinary adventure through the heart of the city. Korean cuisine goes well beyond barbecue and rice wine and this 3.5-hour joint tour will give you a taste of the lesser-known dishes like mung-bean pancakes, buckwheat-noodles and the refreshingly cool patbingsu Korean ice cream. On a stop-and-snack exploration of Gwangjang Market you'll be treated to a smorgasbord of the best Korean food. Our savvy guide will give you the background on every bite, from the history and culture of classic dishes (the diversity of fermented dishes such as kimchi stems from needing to preserve food throughout the long and cold Korean winters) to the proper eating and drinking customs (push the ingredients of the bibimbap to the sides bowl when it is served, then wait a few minutes before digging in so everything cooks a little more against the heat of the hot-stone dish and the rice along the edges gets nice a crispy). Your guide will even suggest rice-wine pairings and teach you favorite local drinking games. Wear comfy shoes because this walking tour includes stops at four different spots, and each locale will highlight different dishes and delights. Expect local booze and bites galore, on this eating extravaganza that starts at 6pm and ends around 9:30pm. The exact restaurants on the line up change tour by tour depending on availability, guest allergies and dining restrictions, but a typical night will include a local Korean barbecue house, a Korean spicy ricecake house, a Korean rice wine restaurant and a traditional Korean market. If the weather is too cold or rainy we will find another way to get around town and limit the time walking outside. No matter the weather it will be an unforgettable night of eating, drinking and making new friends. There’s no better way to get to know Seoul than by the spoonful.

lots of food to try"I like eating so I like this tour. I was a bit nervous to try Korean food because some looked very strange to me. But after trying a few I grew to really like them. I even bought some dried food home."
