The most original and impressive street food can be found in South Korea: from rainbow cotton candy to more traditional specialties, it is food heaven at any time of the day. And like fashion, there are trends: currently it seems like Churros are very popular as I often see people forming a line in Itaewon and Apgujeong. I really appreciate how food is presented with creativity and how delicious it is. I recently discovered those strawberry mochi covered with red bean paste in Myoung-dong and also the best Tteokbokki -떡볶이 in Samcheong-dong area. Tteokbokki can be spicy and hot, if you are not used to eat this kind of food, be cautious. It reminds me of my childhood, and it is a dish which is enjoyed at any moment of the day.
If you want to try a traditional korean dessert, have a « Ho-ppang » -호빵, which is rice cake filled with honey or brown sugar. It is a sweet treat any Korean has tried at least once during their childhood.
I came across many vegetarians in Seoul. Finding vegan dishes in South Korea can be a challenge with the language barrier. All the food pictured in this article are suitable for them.

After trying all kind of desserts made of coconut, I was looking for a cakeshop during my journey in Vietnam. Pacey cupcakes was on my way home and I entered, thinking it was only take away. The front shop is small but go upstairs, and you will find yourself in a timeless Saigon, where time has stopped for a while. I tried nearly all the flavors, and if you like durian, they have an amazing one combined with avocado. My favorite (and also of the owner’s) was Passion fruit. This one above is green tea flavor and below durian + avocado. These cupcakes are far better than the ones I had in New York at Magnolia Bakery. For me, the cake part and the cream cheese should be in « fusion » when you take your spoon and take a bite. Pacey cupcake was all of that!
