If you are new to Korean food and is looking for a "taster set" for local food, then Tongjin market will be a good place to start- plus, you get the unique experience of using a money tokens which mimics the ancient coins used by the Koreans in early eras. The only reason why Tongjin market may not be as popular with tourist is that it is a good 20 minutes walk from the nearest subway station, the Gyeongbukgung station. If you have the time to spare after visiting the Palace, it will be a good experience to drop by the market.
‘Dosirak café’ is the location in the market where you can buy your own money token. For 5000 W, you get a lunchbox and 10 tokens, each with a value of 500 won.
