    I also like to visit various 맛집 with family and friends, and sometimes even on my own! ^^
    I was told that Korean people consider those who eat alone rather pitiful, and I guess I can see why that would be the case, but it is nice to enjoy a quiet meal once in a while so that you can have some solitude to think things over. I can’t wait to visit Korea again so I can frequent some 맛집 with the teachers here at Talk to Me in Korean! 😀

  • 레슨 감사드립니다~

    요즘은 돈이 정말 없기 때문에 집에서 요리 많이 하는 것 같아요. ㅋㅋ

    즐거운 하루 되세요^^!

    오늘이야기가 아주재미있었어요. 나가서 먹는걸 너무 좋아하니까요. 특히 한국에서 살때 거의항상 식당에서 먹었어요 (저기, “식당”과 “맛집” 사이 단점 뭐에요?) 한국에서는, 맛있는거 싸게 살 수 있으니까, 거의 별로 요리를 안했어요. 하지만 미국에는 식당이나 조금 비싸서, 팁도 내야하고, 그냥 집에서 먹어요.

    오, 저도 홍대근초가 자주 다니는데 이었는데, 제 경우엔 힙홉클럽 갈 수 있도록 갔어요. 🙂

  • I like your website and I download and learn alot of lessons.
    I can speak, I can read as kindergarden, anyway I watch alot of korean movie, so I think my korean language are improve. our campus has some korean but i have no chance to talk with them.

  • 안녕하세요 여러분!
    나는 맛집에 자주 않 가서 갈 때 좀 어색해요. 나는 대구 교외 시골에 살아서 그냥식당에 자주 먹거든요. 주인과 예기하고 TV를 봐서 편해요. 그기고 물론 싼 계산이죠 :-). 그런데 두 달 한번에 대구 시내에 가고 친구와 맛집에서 먹어요. 대구 시내에 자주 않 가서 친구와 맛집에 가기 특별 것이에요. 그래서 좀 어색하는데도 아주 재미있어요.

    잘 먹으세요, 여러분! 🙂

  • Hello !

    After reading the text I still don’t know what a 맛집 is. Can someone explain me please ? What’s the difference with a 식당 ?

    • Hi Nicolas,
      I think the difference is that a 식당 is a basic Korean restaurant that can be found anywhere, but a 맛집 is fancier and more expensive: a “trendy” restaurant found in the nice downtown areas.
      To give another example, 맛집 are places where you might make a reservation, but in 식당 you can’t make reservations.
