6 Bucket List Restaurants
1 Gochang DakjipFried chicken makes it more delicious!
The Jeonju Moraenae Aljja Market is the origin of the beer festival in Jeonju. The market chicken of Jeonju Moraenae Aljja Market is the most delicious among the many other market chicken. Among them, the place to introduce today is Gochang Dakjip. The name may be somewhat little strange because it is a “Gochang” Dakjip in Jeonju. But, let’s not doubt it. It’s just because that the hometown of the owner is Gochang.
Gochang Dakjip, which has been in place for more than 10 years, is very busy with orders and deliveries. Even from Bong-dong, people order delivery to eat Gochang Dakjip’s unforgettable chicken. Crispy and savory fried chicken, sesame sprinkled yangnyeom chicken, and sweet-sour chicken gangjeong, which are impressive even after they went cold, are all delicious. The more you eat, the more you want. One chicken in the market is enough for a family. If you visited the market, why don't you get one?

2 Grand Prix BakeryThe smell of freshly baked bread alluring passerby
Somewhere in the market can smell the savory smell of bread. Tracking the smell of bread, you will find the Grand Prix bakery right at the end. Steaming freshly backed breads are on display. The very smell and shape make it impossible to pass by. In the small bakery, various kinds of bread are nicely arranged. I can tell they are very affordable since it was only half the price of a franchise bakery even the basket was full. The reason they can offer the bread at a very good price is because they knead and bake the bread by themselves.
There are some breads which are very intriguing. You can also feel the warmth and kindness of market through the owner who kindly explains what kind of bread it is and what ingredients are used.

3 Meokbo WangmanduWant to eat a variety of food in one place?
Often, they only sell bunsik at bunsik restaurant, dumplings at dumpling restaurant, and Chinese food at Chinese restaurants. However, if you want these foods all at once at the Jeonju Moraenae Aljja Market, I recommend Meokbo Wangmandu. This place has not only dumplings but also snacks like tteokbokki and sundae, hot dogs, vegetable bread, croquette, and even jjajang and jjamppong! You can eat a variety of food with a single 10,000 won. It's also delicious, of course.
This is the best place for big eaters who want to eat many things at the same time. Especially, if you're on a trip with your friends who have different tastes, Meokbo Wangmandu is the right place to go. Even before entering the restaurant, you can tell the owner’s pride on the taste from the signboard at the entrance. Do not hesitate, visit right now.

4 Keun Son Ajimae Banchan StoreBanchan with the sincerity and excellent taste
Keunson-ajimae Banchan store is where store merchants highly recommend. It is said that this place carefully makes each banchan using only good ingredients. Actually, this was the place where I’ve kept an eye on since I got inside the market. Because plenty of banchan seem very appetizing and are displayed in such a clean manner, I couldn't help but taking a picture as soon as I entered the market.
As expected, there is no reason for people to not recognize a place where they do their best. If you want to get a variety of homemade-style banchan at a low price, I hope you visit this place.

5 Sohee’s BunsikRetro bunsik restaurant with memories
Sohee-ne Bunsik is located a little outside of Jeonju Moraenae Aljja Market. It is found inside the market, but it’s worth visiting because Sohee-ne Bunsik is keeping a lot of memories of Jeonju. This place presents retro vibes from its exterior. Sohee-ne Bunsik uses a seasonal agricultural product of Jeonju Moraenae Aljja Market, and presents proper bunsik at a good price. The price written on the menu is quite impressive.
You can eat kimbap, rabokki, and dolsot bibimbap for less than 10,000 won. What's more surprising is that if you order bibimbap or jjigae (stew), you can get kimchi jeon for free! It’s definitely a bang for the buck. Many customers waiting for orders smile and laugh while talking about their school days. It is said that there are schools nearby, so many graduates visit here. Laughter of customers fills the restaurant. Wouldn't it be a good memory to visit to reminisce about your school days?
