You finish a truly glorious rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody at a karaoke spot in K-Town, and then realize that all you’ve consumed for the past five hours is soju and light beer. Fortunately, Gammeeok is open 24 hours, and the food here is exactly the kind of sustenance you’ll want after a long night of drinking and singing. They specialize in a noodle soup with ox-bone broth and brisket, and we recommend getting some fried chicken and kimchi pancakes as well. Sit at a table by the floor-to-ceiling window, and when you notice the sun coming up, you should probably take that as a sign to call it a night.
