If you need a quick lunch, or if you want to eat dinner without having to sit down and interact with a server, go to Woorijip. It’s essentially a Korean cafeteria where you can pick up a pre-made meal or hit a buffet. You’ll find noodles, soup, rice cakes, bulgogi, and about 100 other options, and there’s a seating area where you can hang out, eat your food, and drink some beer or raspberry wine. They sell those things too.
