An ordinary food court in a department store I would say. There are diverse choice of restaurants for you to choose. The price range was large. I recommended Korean Stone Rice.

We had stuffed squid and assorted fried food (chicken, pork, prawn). These looked really appetising till we tasted it. The squid was tough, the rice stuffing was ok. The fried stuff was a big disappointment - all tasted similar as the very thick batter covers up the taste of the meat/prawn.

I enjoyed walking around the entire food court and seeing all the foods that were available. The place was spotless and the employees all had hairnets and clear plastic spit-guards, it was a little over the top but appreciated. I had Tan Tan Ramen which was spicy and had fish cake, dried seaweed, scallions, and bean sprouts. It also came... More

They have a wide variety of foods. There's definitely Korean, Japanese, western, etc cuisines. Most of the stalls have their own dining area. If not, there's quite a number of seats within the food court. This place does get very crowded during meal times. So be prepared to wait for a seat. They close early, around 9pm. But, when it's...

The Lotte Department store that we visited was the one at Myeongdong. We find the food court quite interesting because there was a wide selction of food types/items- from Korean to Chinese to Japanese. There were also counters that offered free tasting. We ordered grilled fish, tan tan noodles, bibimbap etc. The taste and quality of the food is comparable... More

Many variety of food to choose from, turns out to be too crowded during lunch and very hard to find vacant seats. We ordered take-out to consume time waiting for a vacant seat. Cash or Credit Cards are accepted here.

Neighbourhood Profile
Myeongdong / Namdaemun
Arguably Seoul’s most famous neighbourhood and undoubtedly one of its most popular, Myeongdong takes shopping and eating to new heights, with hundreds of shops, restaurants, and cafes all stacked on top of one another. The rise in popularity of Korean cosmetics, fashion, and more has made this area a must-see for visitors who come and marvel at Myeongdong’s often frenetic pace and energy. Lotte and Shinsaegae’s massive department stores are also popular draws for both Korean and luxury products. The department stores, just like Myeongdong’s streets, are crowded around the clock. Myeongdong’s many street food carts are also immensely popular for their inexpensive and quirky offerings (French-fry-encrusted corn dogs, anyone?). The neighbourhood’s popularity, as well as its close proximity to other popular sights and neighbourhoods, makes it one of Seoul’s most popular places to stay.
