Great food, guide, experience
, Jan 2020
There were 6 of us on tour. A family of 4 (2 teenagers), and 2 individuals. Joe was our guide. We started at an authentic back street 'locals' restaurant that specialised in Korean bbq. The food was cooked at the table over hot coals supplied direct from the furnice outside on the footpath. Joe explained the process, the etiquitte, and showed us how best to eat it. This is the best Korean bbq I've ever tasted. The Terra beers were good too :) We then walked through a series of 'locals' eateries to the second place where we picked out what we wanted from a large array of pre-battered (and lightly deep-fried) mostly seafood items before heading to a secluded (almost hidden) little 'pub' where we waited for our previously hand picked items to arrive once they were fully cooked. They were very good too. We also learnt about the etiquitte & drinking of Soju, Makgeolli, and Dong dong ju. They too where all good too. Overall, a great night, with a great (and very interesting guide with great stories to tell). Highly recommended.

The guide, Joe, is an expert in local and authentic Korean food. He is friendly and caring. The two restaurants of this tour are very local, difficult to find for tourists. The pork belly are delicious. I really enjoyed the rice wine that Joe introduced.

Very nice barbeque in a typical Korean barbeque restaurant, we would never have found this place by our selves. The market with 50 or more different things to choose from was great very tasty with good dip sauces and fermented ricewine to accompany the dishes. Guide very nice and friendly. The other guests were also very nice.

This tour guide is awesome! Really chill and funny. Definitely knows his stuff about Korean food and all food, in general. He went out of his way to make sure I had a great experience as I have a seafood allergy. I could tell that he's very very enthusiastic with his work, which made the experience that much better. 10/10 would do this or one of his other tours again. Oh and the food and drinks were delicious! He will take you to the heart of Korean food where you will experience Korean cuisine as if you were a local.
