Anywhere near the water, be it the rustic rocky shores near the lighthouse or the luxury upscale beaches, will be packed with places to dine on fresh fish, oysters and lobster. The seafood in Busan really is superb and couldn't possibly be fresher since the local fisheries pull out their catch each morning and night.
Non-seafood fans need not worry, though. Busan is an international city and there are ample places to eat steak, Japanese, Thai, Indian and pretty much any other kind of cuisine that appeals. Cutting-edge new restaurants with fusion menus are increasingly all the rage.

International fast food chains, American steakhouses, sushi train outfits and everything in between is located here. Guidebooks or websites are the best way to find out the hottest place of the moment, as the choice is vast.
Seomyeon may be the business center of Busan but that means that it is home to most of the city's deluxe five-star hotels. Inside these palaces are some of the city's most luxurious fine dining restaurants and chefs from all over the world have been flown in to create sumptuous menus.
