Yeongyang Center Myeongdong Main
Fried chicken is one of Koreans' favorite for a late-night snack because of a reasonable price as well as its delicious taste. When I was in college, I used to go Yeongyang Center in Myeongdong whenever I have a fat purse. 
Funny thing is I don't even remember when was the last time the price was raised. Now the price isn't seemingly a bitter pill to swallow and I'd like to go to the old-aged restaurant which brings back memories of the past.

Seasoned Chicken with Garlic (maneul yangnyeom chicken) has become popular over recent years in Korea and Banpo Chicken is the most famous place for it.
You can add further piquancy or spiciness with free garlic sauce (right).

I'd never enjoyed eating Kalguksu before I came to Seoul for university. During my first year at the school I luckily had a chance to visit Myeongdong Gyoja and gastronomically I had an exciting experience. The fifty-year-old restaurant is still the best to me.

Tips! Your lips feel like they are burning and your breath smells of garlic when you eat spicy Kimchi too much.
I usually ask waitress a small bowl of rice and mix it with soup and eat them with rinsed garlic Kimchi in cold water. It tastes heavenly.
