On Oct. 18, 2017, Millennium Destinations was invited to a familiarization tour hosted by Gastro Tour Seoul 서울 가스트로 투어 to experience its newly launched culinary expedition, the Seoullo 7017 - Joongrimdong Circular Tasting Tour.
This tour is one of the three courses designed by Gastro Tour Seoul starting from one of the 17 sections of Seoullo 7017 or 서울로 7017, the new "green" pedestrian walkway around Seoul station.
Inaugurated in May this year, Seoullo 7017 was designed as an inclusive and participatory project aimed at transforming a disused overpass dated from the 70s into a tourism and leisure area connected to several local neighborhoods.
The tour included 6 food stops with hearty tasting portions of yummy food, prepared by local restaurants with local ingredients such as: fried pork and jajangmyeon (black sauce noodles), budae jiggae (army base soup), fried rice with mussels, fried dubu (tofu), nato, assorted jeons (pancakes) and marinated crab, sashimis and grilled fish.
This tour will also offer you the opportunity to discover the charming Jungnim-dong district, and have a look at its traditional shops, blooming coffee shops and eateries, and fascinating gentrification process.
