What an amazing experience. Of all the times we've been to Korea, we have never been here before. My only recommendation would be to walk around first before getting sucked into a vendor. We weren't sure what to do so when my mom asked one of the ladies we got pressured into buying our fish from her but she had... More

We went here twice during a Seoul visit. The first time we bought some large prawns and abalone which we then had cooked for us in one of the restaurants upstairs. The second time we went all out for a huge snow crab with a big plate of sashimi. It was cooked and prepared for us upstairs. We ate in... More

Vin Merlot, Mrs Merlot and son young Merlot travelled by subway to this market for the experience. Vin hails from a long line of fishmongers, having started at the Melbourne fish market when he was 7 years old helping Papa Merlot. The great advantage of this market is that whatever you choose to purchase you can take upstairs to be... More

Go with a local and let him/her do the talking. They will tell you different more expensive pricing when they realize you are a tourist. You choose what seafood you want and they will take you to a restaurant where they'll cook what you chose at the market. It is interesting for a first visit but I wouldn't go again.... More

My experience on Noryangjin Fish Market was an interesting one. Apparently, I learnt that I came at the wrong time. My wife and I came around 6pm and the market was so crowded with locals! After we bought our seafood ingredients, the restaurants were full and we were stranded with no place to go. I almost wanted to give up... More

From the 66 building, this is only a mile or two to drive. Price is ok, if you came from North America. Very clean and no smell foul that you normally have in a wet market. Ocean products comes in different varieties of types and sizes. You have options on the restaurants that prepare the food. You can do traditional... More

we got here very early in the morning and the place was packed. What's different about this market is that it has an enormous amount of fish tanks. What you may not like is seeing alive and dead fish in the same tank but to me it beats seeing live fish on a tray with no water and they're gasping... More

Bargain, bargain, bargain. It can be tiring if one doesn't like it. So Noryangin may be a one-off experience for us. King crab was fabulous tho it's was only boiled. Grilled abalone was to die for. Best prices we got for the seafood before cooking: King crab: KRW155K for 2.8kg ++ crab Abalone: KRW10K for 3 good sized ones Wish... More
