Best Restaurants in Busan
In Busan, the main shopping areas are also home to some of the
city''s best restaurants. Seomyeon, Nampodong and the area
surrounding Pusan National University (PNU) each have an extensive
range of western and Korean dining options, including the
ever-popular Outback Steakhouse chain. Visitors to PNU should
definitely try the popular Kebapistan Turkish Kebab House or the
Welcome Pho Vietnamese Eatery, both of which offer a tasty
selection of exotic dishes.
However, Busan is most famous for its seafood, and visitors to
the city are strongly encouraged to give some of the local fare a
try. Diners don''t need to go to any specific restaurant to sample
Busan''s ocean bounty: a walk along the Haeundae or Gwangalli
beachfronts in the early evening will serve as a great
introduction, as the myriad seafood stalls open up and begin
serving freshly grilled fish, squid and prawn dishes. Try the local
speciality dong-nae pajeon, a seafood and green onion pancake.
For visitors looking for a little something special, the Millak
Town Raw Fish Centre (located at the northern end of Gwangalli
Beach) is expensive, but is widely regarded to be Busan''s premier
seafood and fresh fish restaurant.
