Seochon Gyedan-jip

Restaurants, Korean Jongno-gu
4 out of 5 stars

At this restaurant, cockles aren’t their only dish. It’s a place where you can enjoy some of the freshest seafood from all over the country. They’re famous for their seafood dishes as they bring king cockles from Beolgyo, bangeo from Sinan and seashells from Geoje-do. Located in Geumchongyo Market near Gyeongbokgung Station exit 1, it’s the go-to spot for many magazine editors. The restaurant is crowded with people eating freshly steamed seafood and drinking from early evening till dawn. Seochon Gyedan-jip is located in two different restaurants (one facing the other across the street) and they’ll seat you as soon as there’s an empty table, but the line to get in is always long. Their king cockles, which are as big as a spoon, are much bigger than the cockles you might be used to and it’s always amazing how soft they can cook them. They also serve other types of seafood here—all of which is delicious. Their seafood ramen, which goes well with drinks, is another popular dish.
