The Korea Tourism Organization (KTO) recommends a visit to some of the country’s food-themed streets for a taste of the regional food scene. The latest addition to the list of food-themed streets include the Hanu Bibimbap Street in Hampyeong Cheonji, Jeollanam-do; Chicken and Duck Baeksuk Street in Namhansanseong, Gwangju-si, Gyeongi-do; and the Gwamegi (dried mackerel) and Mulhoe Street in Pohang, Gyeongsangbuk-do.

The three food-themed streets are located in the market area, so visitors can also experience the lively market atmosphere. The Hanu Bibimbap Street is located around the Hampyeong Cheonji Hanu Plaza area, the Chicken and Duck Baeksuk Street in Traditional Food Town around Namhansanseong Fortress, while the Gwamegi (dried mackerel) and Mulhoe Street can be found near Guryongpo Beach Market (3-day & 8-day markets) and Guryongpo Port.

The KTO has been promoting many of the country’s food streets since 2012. Other places on the list include Sindangdong Tteokbokki Town, Chodang Sundubu Village, and Chuncheon Myeongdong Dakgalbi Street. Information about these places can be found online and foreign-language menus are also available.
