Anyone who has ever traveled or planned to visit Korea may have heard of the “Lotte World” or the “Lotte World Tower”, an extremely tall shopping mall complex.


The area these places are located is called “Jamsil” in Korean, and since there is a baseball stadium in that area, this Jamsil area might be quite familiar for you. If you have a plan to go to Lotte World amusement park, you might wonder where to eat or what to eat at Lotte World.

I can certainly advise you not to eat at Lotte World. Like all the amusement parks all over the world, foods there are all tasteless, yet ridiculously expensive. I recommend you to have simple bites at a convenience store or Lotteria in front of the Lotte World, and have an appropriate meal outside the Lotte World after having a fun time.
