Noryangjin Fisheries Wholesale Market 노량진수산시장 Part 1
The 3rd day of our Seoul trip was a free and easy day so we visited the famous Noryangjin Fish Market in the morning to buy some fresh catch live seafood and have it prepared into sashimi and hotpot/steamboat for lunch.
Noryangjin Fisheries Wholesale Market or shortly Noryangjin Fish Market is an extensive farmers fish market in the neighborhood of Noryangjin-dong in Dongjak-gu, Seoul, South Korea. It is located east of 63 Building, and just south of the Han River.
Noryangjin Fish Market was established in 1927 as Gyeongseong Susan (경성수산) on Uijuro (의주로) in Jung-gu near Seoul Station and moved to its current location in central Seoul in 1971. – Wikipedia
Some protest or commemoration going on for the 16th April 2014’s ferry disaster that killed more than 180 people.
We cabbed down to Noryangjin Fish Market for lunch.
The Fish Market was so huge (more than 700 stalls), we did not know where to start.
It’s very dim inside but the open area is quite bright.
Yes, much brighter here.
All sorts of fish could be found.
You name it, you got it!
I have never tasted some of these seafood in my life before.
The place was crowded with locals and tourists looking for a good bargain.
These ladies mean business and they will scale the tanks to get your desire.
Local fishmonger at work.
This fishmonger was preparing some “pre-packs” so customers can pick and go.
Can be eaten raw or cooked in steamboats.
Ryan striking a deal with this fishmonger.
He convinced us that this was good as sashimi.
Live fish for sashimi.
What could go wrong?
The fishmonger even threw in a freebie for our stew.
We saw some salmon from another vendor and had it sliced for sashimi.
He was packing the salmon belly sashimi was us.
Did he knew I was snapping away?
Perhaps they were too engrossed in their conversation.
Traditional-styled restaurants are located on the second floor.
This was the shop recommended by the fishmonger who gave us a freebie fish.
I wonder if they had connections.
