Thursday Doors: Shopping in Seoul

The following photos are my contribution to Thursday Doors, a door-lovers group hosted by Norm Frampton.


This ‘doorscursion’ post is the last of four from my recent mother-daughter trip to Seoul, Korea.  For this post, the photos are an eclectic assortment from our food market trips and shopping bits.


Gwangjang Market

Coffee and donut shops on every corner, Korean people still frequent delicious street food stalls.  Vendors serve anything from soy marinate crab to spicy rice cake balls.  From fried mung bean pancakes to brown sauce fish flakes.  From Nutella fried fish waffles to pork dumplings.



Insadong Shopping Area

Insadong (near the Gyeongbokgung Palace) is Seoul’s traditional art district and shopping area.  The streets and alleys are filled with art galleries, tea houses, small shops that sell arts and crafts, local restaurants, and cafes.





I couldn’t pass this up without taking a photo and couldn’t end this final post without including it!


If you would like to see more doors from all around the globe, visit Norm’s.

Kamasahamnida (thank you) for stopping by.  Have a nice weekend!

    Wow that blue door did it for me, and yes that mural HAD to be shared.
    I’m still trying to imagine what Nutella fried fish waffles must taste like. As a typical Canadian I’d probably still try to put maple syrup on them 😀

    1. I like the squiggely door knob on the blue door too. I’m with you there. Though it was tastey, I prefer maply syrup on my waffles. =)

    “Nutella fried fish waffles” … oh no. I used to be very adventurous about food but as I’ve aged … yeah, just no 😳

        Ok – so now I’m curious. How does Nutella and fish go (or not go) together?
        Which leaves me wondering how on earth people can dream up these unlikely combinations!!

      2. Okay, I think I’ve misled you … =) The fish part is just the shape, not the flavor. So, it’s really a waffle and Nutella. But, I did see some other really “weird” stuff in the market. Live octopus?
