Expensive Street Food
Sep 2019 • Friends
Bad choice to eat along this street because the food is expensive.

The menu doesn’t have any price listed. (Warning)

I ordered a dish of pork and Squid and it cost me ₩68,000.

Food is so-so.

The atmosphere was okay though.

Scam
Aug 2019 • Couples
44,000 won for one squid dish (more of a snack than a dish) and one soju. As others have said, this snack was more expensive than any meal we’d ever had in Korea. Seems like a scam.

WARNING to ALL visitors - AVOID this DANGEROUS and POTENTIALLY VIOLENT SCAM
Jun 2019 • Friends
We are seasoned and experienced travellers - and this is one of the most gauling scams we've seen. On the road south of Lotte Department Store are several of the infamous food tents. They were not overly busy and we went to one staffed by a seemingly lovely lady. The menu was only in Korean, with no numerals on the menu associated with any of the pictures. Time spent in China and Cambodia had disarmed us from being concerned at this red flag. The three of us had already had dinner - we wanted a snack and some beers and to soak up the atmosphere. We had 8 BBQ'd king prawns (these were quite good), 4 small chicken kebabs that were dreadful and 2 local beers (that cost about 3000 won in the shop). We ate up and were handed a bill for 50,000 won (£33/$42) - more than any single meal we ate in Seoul! A young man had joined the serving lady during the cooking and on hindsight its clear he was there as an enforcer - we argued the bill vociferously, offering 60% (which would still be a rip-off), offering to involve the police and finally walking off. We had attempted negotiation using Google Translate, attempting to explain our position. They became very aggressive, very quickly, in a manner atypical for Koreans, and eventually chased one of our number down the street, using fellow stall-owners to coerce the remaining money. Please be careful - these are seasoned pro's at ripping off people, and they are the antithesis of everything Korean culture stands for. I have flagged up warnings with Lonely Planet and the VisitKorea Tourist Center. Please heed and don't let them spoil an otherwise wonderful country.

Simple Food Street but tasty
May 2019 • Couples
Thanks to Tripadvisor, I didn't tried those tents that selling BBQ pork. Ending up trying those tent which selling fish cake, tteok-bokki and etc. There are few stores selling the same food just parked right outside Lotte Departmental Store. Food is tasty and the price is OK. Recommend to try when you stay somewhere nearby.

Food Alley in Seomyeon area!
Apr 2019 • Solo
Ended up eating my meals here several times during my three day stay in Busan.
There are so many eatery choices so it is a bit overwhelming. Definitely highest concentration of restaurants and night life entertainment in Busan city.

Great options for lunch and dinner
Nov 2018 • Couples
We visited a couple of restaurants in Seomyeon Food Alley - once for lunch and once for dinner. It's great to have some many good options close together! Some places don't have English signage, but if you go in there will probably be an English menu that you can use if needed. We were always given an English menu without having to ask, making it really easy to eat at whatever restaurant you like.

Rip off: $30 for pork+pancake
Nov 2018 • Solo
Don't go to any red tent where the price is not visible. I ate some fried pork and a pancake at one and then the owner tried to charge me 30,000 won for it = $30!! We argued for 15 minutes, she became extremely aggressive and eventually I walked off with her holding my 20,000 won. Much better to go to a restaurant or eat at the stand-up food stalls where there are clear prices.

Awesome Vibe with festive streets & Many Cute Cafes
Oct 2018 • Friends
It was my first time in Seomyeon street & I definitely loved it. There were many people but it wasn't uncomfortable to roam around. The cafes with different themes are all over the streets and the vibe of the streets were sort of a combination of hip Hongdae & serene Yeonnamdong. I think from now on whenever I visit Busan, I'll definitely make Seomyeon street my go-to place to hang out with my friends.
