Tips for eating alone in Seoul?

Lina | Nov 12, 2009 01:44 AM

I'm travelling through Seoul by myself right now. I've heard that it's uncommon for people to eat alone here, and many restaurants makes dishes for 2, etc.

Any strategies for eating alone here? Are certain types of places better bets?

In fact, any suggestions for eating in Seoul would be appreciated. Just had my first meal which was slightly difficult as there was no English menu, pictures or English speaking waitstaff but I perservered and was rewarded big time! I've now memorized the Hangul for sundubu so should be set for a while anyway. 순두부!

But any suggestions for eating alone, or figuring out what to get on a menu would be appreciated. I don't have problems eating anything, so should I just ask the waitress to pick for me?
