About 30 minutes later we met in the lobby for a brief orientation and then divided up to explore our neighborhood of Seoul and to find something to eat. Having been to Seoul before I was not surprised to see the American icons of McDonalds, Star Bucks, and 7-Eleven around but I was a bit caught off guard to see Popeyes Lousiana Kitchen. We didn't eat there but check out these pics.
My group did settle on a Korean restaurant. In addition to soju, we enjoyed pajun (like a stuffed pancake). Our waiter helped us to select two different pajun styles: one with beef and kimchi and the other with seafood (shrimp and squid). Each was accompanied by a side of kimchi and onions in a dipping sauce. It was absolutely wonderful.
