Some best Korean Street Food
Here we’ll discuss some best Korean street food ;
Rice cake with chili sauce (Tteokbokki)
Rice cakes that have been soaked and seasoned with chili sauce are used in this dish. Among the top tteokbokki eateries in Seoul is Sindang, a district famous for housing some of the best tteokbokki eateries in Myeongdong Street and Gwangjang Market. Tteokbokki is undeniably the best in Korea.
(Fish cake) Odeng
Every foodie must have Odeng in their repertoire. Skewered fish cake served with broth. Because fish cakes can find everywhere in Seoul, you don’t need to worry about finding them.
(Egg bread) Gyeranppang
Gyerranppang is the Korean word for egg bread. A muffin-like appearance, an egg on top, and an unexplainable odor, whether savory or sweet, make this an easy way to ruin a diet. The best part is you can get it almost everywhere in Korea. It makes a great breakfast, lunch, snack, and dinner. A trendy street in Seoul, Myeongdong, has many stalls selling egg bread.
The corn dog
The Korean street food corn dog is similar to the usual hotdogs, but it’s coated with batter. However, Korean corn dogs are unique because they come in all shapes and sizes. They have everything from a corn dog shaped like an octopus to a french fries-shaped dog.
The stuffed pancake (Hotteok)
Hotteok, or stuffed pancake, is a Korean street food name. The sweet Korean pancake has cinnamon, dark brown sugar, and chopped peanuts. In addition to savory fillings, there are kimchi and japchae.
The savory pancake (Pajeon)
Among the world’s best street foods is pajeon, another Korean delicacy. The batter of pajeon differs from ordinary sweet pancakes because it includes wheat flour, rice flour, eggs, and scallions. There are other types of pajeon, such as bindaetteok (mung bean pancake), Haemulon (seafood pancake), soegogi-jeon (beef pancake), gochujeon (green chili pepper pancake), and kimchi-jeon (kimchi pancake).
Yagnyeom tong dak (fried chicken in Korean)
Korean fried chicken, yangnyeom tong dak, is no longer an ethnic cuisine. One thing that makes Korean fried chicken unique is the crispy, paper-thin skin that shatters upon biting into it. Usually, Korean food is served in a cup, but some Korean restaurants serve it also.

You can also try pairing mozzarella with mayo or ketchup. Another option is the Just Cheese Chunky, which does not come with it. Chunky Town is located at QV.
Busan’s dessert café, Sulbing, is famous for its bingsu. Flakes are finely shaved to craft snow ice, ice cream, or yogurt. It is the toppings that make the pizza so delicious. There are many choices; dark chocolate Oreo Monsters, tiramisu cheesecakes, and rockmelon with red bean sticky rice cake. Fans of tteokbokki pizza will drool over the cheese goodness served hot in a skillet.
South Korean Train Station
The Seoul Station at Melbourne Central serves more Korean takeaway hot dogs. These deep-fried sausage pops are coated in crunchy ramen noodles or potatoes. They also do K-hotdog crumb. You could also use potato batter instead of sausage and melt mozzarella on top. Add sugar to get the authentic Korean flavor. Pour two sauces (or less) to finish—cheese, mustard, honey mustard, ketchup, mustard, and honey mustard.
Sinjeon is the perfect place to start your Korean street-food adventure. It’s the premier place for Seoul’s number one snack, tteokbokki (pronounced ‘doe-bok-kee’). The sweetly spiced rice cakes are packed with heat from the chili—dip fishcakes in the sauce before serving. Add melted cheese on top. Of course, there’s much more on the menu at Sinjeon, including kimbap (Korean sushi), fried chicken, and bibimbap.
Some interesting information about Korean food
If you’ve ever been to a street market in Korea, you’ll notice that every vendor has its style of skewers. Many vendors will also mix in other types of food as well as veggies, like cabbage and carrots. Many street vendors use dak-kkochi skewers to put their food on because they’re easy to hold and keep clean—and they can be used for any type of food, from meat to vegetables.
