Live King Crab + Abalone @Noryangjin Fisheries Wholesale Market

A day before we left Seoul, we had Live King Crab + Abalone for lunch in a restaurant inside Noryangjin Fisheries Wholesale Market

Noryangjin Fisheries Wholesale Market
The Noryangjin Fisheries Wholesale Market is the nation's largest wholesale fish market and boasts a history of more than 80 years. Though the market is open and busy 24 hours a day, the already bustling marketplace really picks up around dawn when the fish auctions begin.

The sheer volume of the abundant fish and seafood, not to mention the freshness of the products, will overwhelm you. They are transported during the night directly from fishing boats in the East Sea, the Yellow Sea, and the South Sea, as well as from the Pacific Ocean. 

So remember to hold your breathe when you going past by the market on the way to the restaurant! And dun walk too long in the market, otherwise your shoes and clothing smells!

Our tour group have the whole room with long tables all joint up
Saw the abalones on the table? Then I tot we only have the crabs which is inside the pot of soup. Then........
