Fac­ing the mu­seum gate is 733 9240 / koong.co.kr / the area’s old­est and tasti­est North Korean dumpling spot. Ex­it­ing the Kyun­gin left, nip left again and a few steps down you’ll find a back­street packed with food stalls; try / 735 8552 / for grilled meat and bam­boo-steamed rice, best en­joyed with liqueurs like makke­olli or dong­dongju. Or, op­po­site is

for a fancy bite and wine in 30s ar­chi­tec­ture. Re­trace your steps to the main street and con­tinue to find / on the left with neat ce­ram­ics, art and furny. Exit, keep left and spin left into the next al­ley, fol­low­ing it round to find

run by a dear old ex-monk in sus­pect footwear. Grab a veg­gie snack if so in­clined. Leave the al­ley the way you came in and turn left at the main road. Across the strip espy kan.co.kr / an homage to all things – you guessed it. At the four-way in­ter­sec­tion are 8233 / for gorgey rice pa­per, and원떡집/ 733 9009 / for rice cake morsels to go. Keep go­ing and at the next cor­ner turn right, then shoot straight for the end of the lane to power up with Korean green teas, herbal mixes, pas­tries, and re­tail at the 735 6678 / in a hanok with pretty skylit atrium. Cha-aaah!
