Have a REAL Korean Night Out

a ZenKimchi tour

Out of all districts in Seoul, Mapo is the best known for Korean BBQ. We dine at the epicenter of Mapo-style barbecue for some charcoal grilled pork, aged kimchi, and raucous atmosphere. We will then head to the Jeon (Korean Pancake) Market for some cool photos and take our secret entrance into a traditional pub to chill for the evening.

So, to break it down


  • Mapo-style pork BBQ
  • Korean pancake market
  • Korean pancakes and beverages at a traditional pub

Wear comfortable shoes and bring an ample appetite. The ticket price includes all food. It also includes alcoholic beverages (within reason). Non-alcoholic option is available.

Length of tour: approx. 2 1/2 hours
Type: Walking, eating
Food types for special diet consideration: pork, pancakes, alcohol, smoky environments (even though smoking technically isn’t allowed)
Suggested items: Comfortable walking shoes, umbrella (depends), camera
Start location: Gongdeok Station, exit 7 (lines 5, 6, AREX)


In the past, we have extended the tour to include other activities at guests’ request. We’re now making it available in the ticketing process.

IMPORTANT: We can only do one option per tour, so if you want a certain option, select it quickly.

Option 1: Karaoke

A night out with friends in Korea isn’t complete without renting a private room and belting out tunes. The fun parts of Korean karaoke (“noraebang”) are finding the most obscure songs in the catalog and trying to reach the highest score. No need to be a great singer–just a willingness to have a good time.

Option 2: Chicken & Beer

There are some classic old fashioned chicken “hofs” in the neighborhood. We finish the night at one of them, enjoying Korean-style friend chicken loaded down with pitchers of beer.

NOTE: Sometimes the chicken hofs close without notice. If we can’t find an alternative we will reimburse your ticket.
