Noryangjin Fish Market | 노량진시장

This morning, we went to the Noryangjin Fish Market, located near the Noryangjin Station (노량진역) on subway line 9, either exit 1, 7 or 8. If you take exit 7 or 8, you will have to go up the stairs and across a bridge. We took exit 8 and had to do this. It is possible to take exit 1, but we took a wrong turn.


This is the entrance of the market. 

The smell of seafood is really strong right as you enter the market, so it’s not recommended to go if you don’t really like fish/seafood.


There are so many stalls!! But they all had really similar products for similar prices.



Live Octopus (상낙지)!! We bought 3 to eat. It doesn’t really taste like anything, but it’s more about the experience ^^;;


More stalls


Angler/Monk Fish that was cut open

There was so much. We didn’t really know what to get. Really recommend going with someone who has experience or can at least speak fluent Korean. When we were walking through, they assumed that we were all Chinese. It was funny (since I, Lila, get this a lot), but Lillian was kind of salty because of this.

We ended up buying a sashimi (회) platter, oysters, eel, and octopus. To cook the oysters and eel, we went upstairs to a restaurant. It was pretty empty when we first got there, but as it got closer to noon, the place started filling up.


Sashimi Platter!! It was prepared beforehand by the stall owner, so we were able to eat it first. The rest of our food came out afterwards.

Overall, this was a good experience. I would definitely want to go back with someone who knows their way around the market. It would add more to the experience, because we would be able to communicate better with the stall owners, and hopefully get the better quality fish/seafood.


That’s all for now. Due to our schedules, we won’t be able to post up a video until later in the week. But make sure to stay tuned for that!
