Tteokbokki, a popular Korean snack food, was originally called tteok jjim, and is a braised dish of rice cake cylinders in spicy red pepper sauce, often served with meat, boiled egg or fish cake. Arguably the number 1 Korean street food, Tteokbokki is a very quintessential Korean dish. You must try this if it is your first time to Korea.
- French-fry corn dog
One of the most delicious street snacks is the French-fried corn dog made by encrusting with French fries all over it. Quite essentially sausages wrapped in bread/ batter, then deep-fried to an erotic golden brown color, Corn Dogs are so bloody awesome. This food is particularly popular with young people, who eat it with ketchup and sometimes sugar.
This goldfish-shaped bread called bungeoppang is a ubiquitous street food. It is a pancake like texture snack in fish shaped with red beans filling. When it’s cooked, the piping hot treat is crispy on the outside, and gooey on the inside. Bungeoppang is sold as a snack by open-air food vendors throughout Korea, particularly during the winter.
Bungeoppang is everyone’s favorite food, including famous actors such as Kim Woo Bin.
