자갈치시장

Jagalchi Fish Market is the largest marine products market in Korea, and like Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo, is an ideal place to sample raw fish and the Korean version of sushi or gimbap (steamed white rice - bap - with seafood rolled in dried seaweed - gim).

Jagalchi is located in the Nanpo-dong area of Busan and the market itself is both indoors and outdoors. Fried tuna or chamchi is a popular dish here.
