Street food in Seoul, South Korea.
A Starbucks Coffee in Seoul!
If you want a snack in Seoul, you have McDonalds or Starbucks Coffee of course, like everywhere else, but it would be a shame not to try the many little food stalls (called pojangmacha) in the streets of Seoul and their dishes do look appetising as you can see the food being cooked.
Food being cooked
There are skewers everywhere and very often they have odeng which is a kind of fish cake. Some other typically local Korean food is the sundae. It is not an ice cream but a kind of black sausage/black pudding/boudin noir made of steamed pig or cow’s intestine. Fried dumplings (Gunmandu) and rice cakes (Tteokbokki) are also quite popular.
Preparing the stall for lunch time
In the street stall below located near the French restaurant La Cigale Montmartre, they had sandwiches such as the original cheese dog (W4,000), tacos such as chicken taco (chicken lettuce, tomato, onions, cheddar cheese, salsa, sour cream – W4,000) but also beef taco (same ingredients excepted for the ground beef instead of chicken). As beverages they had cola and cider (W1,000 each).
Cool guys doing the V sign
The food is pretty cheap as if you order a taco and the cider, for example, the whole thing cost W5,000 which is less than £2.50. As a bonus the guys making it are happy to pose for a picture:-)
If you are into sweet snacks, there is the hotteok that look like a sweet pizza with honey, sugar and nuts as toppings.
