Seoul is notorious for its high prices, but if you look hard enough you can find cheap, delicious food even in the middle of the city. Minju Tteokbokki, open for over 30 years now, is one of those places. Its menu starts as low as 1,500 won (more or less $1.50 USD), with the most expensive item costing just 4,000 won. Plus the kind Korean granny running the restaurant gives very generous servings. It was originally part of a tteokpokki street filled with restaurants serving snack food near Ehwa Woman's University, but every single restaurant closed down as time passed, leaving Minju the last one standing. It remains a favorite of locals living in the area and students from Ehwa, with both Japanese and Chinese-language menus available. Definitely visit Minju Tteokbokki if you want to try authentic Korean snacks for cheap.
