Creative street food – Seoul

5 avril 2015 § 4 Commentaires

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.  strawberry mochi seoul street food myoungdong food travel south korea mochi rabbit seoul south korea travel dessert food myoung dong where  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.hanok street food seoul tteokbokki south korea spicy hot

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. vegetarian seoul dessert street food travel south korea restaurant

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.

Eating Mandoo at 북촌 손 만두 – Seoul

5 avril 2015 § 4 Commentaires

Koreans call popular food spots as « Mat-jib » – 맛집, which literaly means « tasty place ». When you don’t know where to eat in South Korea, ask a local where is the nearest 맛집. Usually there is a queue at those restaurants but it is worth waiting. In the touristic area of Insadong, where you can purchase pieces of pottery, there is a nice place for eating « Mandoo » -만두. Japanese have gyozas, Chinese the jiaozi -饺子, Korean the Mandoo. It is located in a small alley, and it is called « Bukchon Son Mandoo » -북촌 손 만두. dumpling insadong eat restaurant seoul travel south korea food dumpling bukchon mandu seoul insadong south korea travel food   You will have choice between fried or steamed version. Eating just Mandoo may not be enough to calm your appetite, go for a bowl of my favorite spring/summer dish: « Neng-Myeun » -냉면, cold noodles made of buckwheat topped with korean radish (daikon). vegetarian insadong south korea seoul restaurant food travel noodles buckwheatinsadong mandu seoul travel south korea restaurant food dumplingdumpling noodles insadong food seoul south korea vegan
