Imu-nim's (이모님) Stall at Gwanjang Market (광장시장)

If you happen to be in South Korea and are craving for the Korean street food, may I suggest to you my favourite 이모님's stall at Gwanjang Market (광장시장). I firstly discovered 이모님's stall during my first trip to South Korea when I stayed in Jongno area. I had my few last dinners in South Korea at her stall and have been craving for more ever since.

Look for her if you are in Gwanjang Market :)

She was one of the main reasons why I decided to have a layover at South Korea recently. I craved for her omuk and sikhye! It also does not hurt because she is such a nice lady. (I am a sucker for kind people!). Even after 9 months since my last visit, she still recognized me. lol!

I think I had 3 omuk and 3 sikhye during my recent visit. You guys have to try her sikhye! Her sikhye is to die for! I have tried sikhye at few places but her sikhye is hands down the best sikhye I ever had. I also got free mayak kimbap from her. hehe! *I love free food*


Some people asked me about the ingredients and stuff when I recommended 이모님's stall on my Twitter. As far as I observed (and I asked), she does not use and serve any meat, chicken, or pig. As you can see (or not), she only sells sikhye, mayak kimbap, omuk, spicy omuk, and tteokbokki.

So, if you have a chance, do visit her at Gwanjang Market and please savor her omuk and sikhye on my behalf! :)

  8. Gwanjang market pernah pergi but tak pernah makan dkt situ. Ok boleh book mark kedai Ahjumma nie. Tapi memang betul . Stall yang boleh makan adalah stall yang solely dia jual odeng and tobeokki sahaja. But , odeng pun kita kena tanya kan either dia masak kuah dia pakai ikan bilis or daging. Nie tourist guide yang ajar masa 1st time gie Korea. 2nd time dh pandai skit dah and dah tahu nak makan apa and kat mana . hihihhi

    1. I see. Tak tahu pun yang odeng pun kena tanya pasal soup base dia. For this imu-nim, dia guna ikan bilis because I watched her preparing for the stuff. Thanks for the info! :)
