Korean Street Food
Just like Japan and Thailand, Korea is known for its amazing selection of street food. Sold in pojangmacha tents (street stall on wheels), dishes such as twigim (Korean-style tempura), gimbap (Korean sushi), mandu (dumplings), yangnyeom tongdak (fried chicken), pajeon (pancakes), myeon (noodle soup), and odeng (fish cakes), occupy the busy streets of South Korea.

Grabbing a plate of tteokbokki after a few glasses of soju (Korean spirit) with friends is the ultimate late night indulgence in Korea. You can find tteokbokki sold in food stalls across Seoul and the rest of the country, where groups of people gather to enjoy great food with friendly conversations.
