More Food

Fatman Seoul has a great guide to street eats in Korea that I'd recommend checking out.

The Fishbread is fairly good, bit too sweet for me. Haven't seen any of the savory kinds for sale in Incheon.

Haven't tried the filefish yet. Going to have to give it a try.

The squid strips are pretty good.

Haven't tried the chicken feet either, never see it for sale when I'm hungry and in the mood to try something new.

Ddeokpokki is good stuff but I'm not a fan of sundae, something about the texture really bothers me and the taste is nothing special.

Gotta agree with him about the gukmul, that stuff warms you right up.

Some things he didn't mention were the various forms of hotdog. Had a great one the other day that was wrapped in bacon, had a terrible one the other day that was dipped in sugar. I ordered a battered hotdog from a stand and he asked me if I wanted what I thought was salt on it. I said yes and he dredged it through a big pan of 'salt,' this thing was covered. Took a bite and I was shocked to find out that it was sugar. If you haven't tried a battered hotdog with catsup, mustard, and suger then count yourself lucky.

More info on bosintang here (including a recipe if you want to try it at home).


  1. Hi.
    My name is Misun and I am a student of MyoungJi University.
    First of all I appreciate your consideration for Korea. I would like to introduce Korean more,
    it's form of HTML and easy to post it on your site.
    So would like to I send you an e-mail about that. My e-mail address is werame@naver.com
    I will wait your e-mail.

    Thank you very much and have a nice day :)

  2. Thanks for the praise . . . and don't worry, hot dogs (and other treats) are coming up when we do our next crawl. Last time we worked our way through Jongno, where there are fewer hot dog places, but this time we'll be heading to Myeongdong.
    p.s. Try mixing your sundae into the ddeokpokki sauce and see if you like it better that way.

  3. Chicken feet aren't just eaten in Korea.Try it if you're ever in the Caribbean, or in Guyana.
