These "toast" shops have been popping up lately in the subways. While their product is almost certainly not very good for you, it does make a tasty and filling (occasional) snack when you're in a rush!

김대감봉평메밀촌 교보타워점 (Bongpyeong Memil Chon)

Naengmyeon, the chewy Korean cold noodle dish, does a great job of beating the summer heat, but by now you may be looking for something new. If you are looking for a similarly cold lunch and like the taste of buckwheat noodles give this makguksu a try!
