[Seoul] Street Food

with 2 comments

During my Seoul trip, I designated one whole evening to a busy shopping district called Myeong-dong (명동/明洞). For shopping? Nah, for the street food, but of course. Seoul is known to be a lively destination teeming with carts and stalls of snacks ranging from the traditional to the weird. Unfortunately I didn’t manage to take a picture of everything I tried, but here are some snapshots to whet your appetite…

Toppogi, spicy rice cakes

Korean hot dog? Fish cake?

Soft-served ice-cream

Banana milk, not really a street food but something to try when in Seoul

Some other typical Korean street foods I tried but not pictured in this post are things like odeng (fish cakes cooked in a savory broth), sundae (sausages made from pig intestines, not to be confused with the ice-cream) and hotteok (pancake made from a mixture of glutinous rice flour and wheat flour, then filled with brown sugar and black sesame seed paste). Come hungry!
