This district is not as big as I thought it would be from looking online at other blogs. But this is still a great place to visit to get supplies and ingredients. There are many small shops which sell baking supplies ranging from shortening, chocolate, organic whole grain flour, to pancake mix. They have pretty much everything, however I was still unable to find vanilla. This is one item that I had my family send me along with other goodies.
Hopefully you will enjoy visiting this quaint area by the Cheonggyecheon Stream. This district is an older part of Seoul, so don't expect many modern restaurants and shops around this area. The district is comparable to a wholesale marketplace.
These directions are really simple, there is no way that you can get lost! Take line 1 to the Jongno 5 ga station and leave exit #7, Walk strait to the Cheonggyecheon Stream about 2 minutes. Turn right
