Tired of only eating kebab when going shopping at Namdaemun Market? How about a proper meal with spicy fish stew, rice and vegetable side dishes? Make your way to the Galchi Jorim Alley then.

This alley is one of two famous food alleys in Namdaemun. Hidden behind shop fronts, making your way to this alley is half the challenge. The other half? Enduring the spiciness of this dish and taking out the many small bones on the fish. As always check out the sources for pictures and more descriptions! (source 1, source 2)

When you've reached here, walk straight until you find many restaurants cooking their galchi jorim outside their doors.

UPDATE: I found out that alcohol may be used in the preparation of this dish from this article. Please ask first whether they used alcohol before ordering.
