A guide to eating while biking in Korea.

Riding a bike can rustle up a mighty appetite. Come noontime, you might scramble to find something, anything to fill the black hole in your stomach. But you’re deep in the back roads of Korea. What’s to eat?

Not too long ago, old-school, sit-on-the-floor restaurants were the only game in town. Over the past few decades, along with Korea’s GDP, your options have tripled.

Burger and pizza joints hang out at the corner of every city block. Chinese takeout exists at the most distant of outposts. Gimbap shops (김밥) and convenience stores serve picnic-ready meals for those on the go.
