Every country has a special dish to spend just for late night. In South Korea, the dish is samgyeopsal — the slices of thick fat pork are grilled on charcoal. Although there are many samgyeopsal shops in the area, but Anga is probably one of the best. You will be grilling meat and wrap roll in lettuce served with gochujang (a kind of chili sauce in South Korea). The shop open until 2am, and will be a good end to your itinerary (and tasty) in Busan.
