In many other countries you’d see a street stall selling food and immediately avoid it. It’s probably dodgy, right? But in South Korea, street food is where it’s at. A lot of food you find in street stalls you can’t find in restaurants, ddeokbokki (spicy rice cakes), eggy bread (don’t be fooled, its sweet), and many more foods you can’t find anywhere else. The place to go for a street food fix is Myeongdong, there they have a whole street lined with stalls selling loads of foods. My recommendations are spicy rice cakes, fish cakes (odeng), chicken and rice cakes in a sticky sauce (this stall is permanent, a bit further down and open a lot longer), and eggy bread. But try everything your belly grumbles at!
Location - Myeongdong, Jung-gu, Seoul
