People & Places: Jessica Jung, Seoul

In this new series, we ask people from all over to pick their favourite haunts on their home turf. First up, the multitalented Jessica on Seoul's best naengmyeon and galbi.

You can travel to a city all you want, but when it comes to finding the best that it has to offer, nothing beats getting it straight from the horse’s mouth. That is, asking a local to spill all the deets. Whether you’re schmoozing on the streets of Paris or eating your way through Hong Kong, we want you to make the most out of your trip by skipping the mediocre and going to the best restaurants, watering holes and chill spots. Not a tick of time to waste is our philosophy when it comes to travelling. Enter “People & Places”, a travel series where we ask our pals from around the world to list five of their favourite local haunts that they think you should check out when you’re on their home turf. Following Chriselle and her recommendations for L.A., we have Jessica Jung this week with her favourite places for Korean fare in Seoul. Got to get that nyaengmyun fix, are we right or are we right?
