If museums are not your thing, this one might change your mind yet. Instead of showing old artifacts, this museum has pictures and props designed to "trick" the brain. You can take pictures and have a fun day overall here. It is a good place to bring children to and worth a visit if you are already around Hongdae area. (source).

Yang Good Korean BBQ Lamb Restaurant

Category: Restaurant - Halal Restaurant
Nearest Subway Station: Yeoksam Station (Line 2)
Distance from Subway Station: 289 meters (Exit 6)

It is really unfortunate that there are not many choices for halal Korean food in Seoul. There is Murree Restaurant in Itaewon... and.... ? Well there are also many seafood options but I am sure we all agree that we. must. have. meat.

Fear not! You can have your sizzling, smoking grilled BBQ meat at this restaurant. They use lamb meat imported from Australia so they are Halal. Yeay! Prepare to spend a ~little~ bit extra though. But I'm sure the experience will be well worth it. Price is around 11,000 KRW - 22,000 KRW and the restaurant is open from 3 PM until late. (source 1, source 2)
