GaeSong Dumplings is perhaps my favorite restaurant in Seoul. Located in Insadong, hidden down a side alley near Kyung-In Museum of Fine Arts. If you look in the window you will see an old lady or two making mandu -- or Korean dumplings. Their specialty is manduguk, dumpling soup, and it is amazing. Throughout the restaurant you will see many newspaper and magazine articles about this great restaurant with handmade mandu.

In the evening the place will often be packed and the mandu goes almost as fast as the little ladies can fold up the perfect little pieces. Meals here are downright cheap (under 5000 won) and delicious!
