Sorae Pogu Fish Market in Incheon Korea! – Part 5


(Fresh Oysters!)

After walking around the Sorae Pogu market for about an hour, we decided to eat some Korean sashimi.  They looked so yummy, my aunt and I decided to eat some.

At the market, there are some fish stores that have a place inside for you to eat the fish.  You can also buy different types of fish then go to a place that will filet the fish and make it edible.

These are the stores that have place to sit inside.  But if you prefer, they will sit you on the street with the view of the boats coming into the docks.  Since I like the view, we decided to sit down on the streets like some other old men were doing and getting drunk.

This ain’t the most comfortable setting but at least you’ve got some fresh fish and view of the ocean.

First, we ordered some live octopus, my favorite food of all time.

Then we ordered oysters, these are the ones we saw earlier and they just melt in your mouth.

My aunt ordered us a bunch of different types of Korean sashimi.  I am not even sure what each of these are but they were really good.

I took some photos while sitting down to eat the Korean sashimi, can you notice that the electrical pole is slanted slightly because all these shops are pulling lines from it?

Oh well, just enjoy the fish.

That was one of the freshest Korean fish sashimi and best I’ve had.  Of course, there’s like hundreds of other great places in Korea but Sorae Pogu is one of the cheapest and close to Seoul.

For those of you who want to visit this hidden, fish market in Incheon, Korea, here’s Google Maps location.

If you have a layover in Incheon, South Korea for couple hours, you might be able to visit this place as it’s also very close to the Incheon airport, perhaps 35 minutes on a taxi.

    That fish you mentioned is either Flounder or Red Snapper. Flounder is a flat fish that is extremly popular in Korea. Red Snapper is also popular. The Orange Sashimi is Sea Cucumber.
