  • A hidden restaurant

    Okp'o-dong Restaurants

    Athene, although located at the main road, was a little hidden to me, because it's in between the two roads I normally took going down into Okp'o. I think the big fruit salad was the absolute highpoint. A friend of mine ordered this bowl, because he felt too sick to enjoy any of the other great food that is on the menu.

    These places are everywhere. You can tell its a dalkgalbi place because there is a stove in the middle of every table. The food is kinda spicy but very good. Since I've been in Korea I've eaten it at least twice a week. The cool thing about these places is they only cost about 4$ and that is more than enough to eat. Most Korean food is really cheap...

    Masan center city

    by pieter_jan_v Written Mar 27, 2005

    Masan has several neighbourhoods along the coast and the city is divided by some mountains.
    Don't limit your visit to the modern suburbs, but visit the oldest part of town to.
    It's difficult to park in the narrow inner streets, but it's the only way.

    What to buy: I was surprised by the many herbs and seeds on sale.
