Korean Winter Street Foods
Korea is proud of its food, but it REALLY proud of its street food. There are different foods depending on the season, and I have to say that winter is the best. Here's a list of foods you MUST TRY if you get the chance: 군고구마 (kun go-gu-ma) 군 means "roasted" and 고구마 is Korean sweet potato. The potato is roasted in a huge barrel oven, then handed to you with the skin still on. It's your job to peel it and eat the sweet goodness inside. You can buy an entire bag if you want! 호떡 (ho-ddeok) 호떡 is sort of a pancake/donut combination. It is fried dough filled with cinnamon, sugar, and occasionally nuts. It is flattened into a pancake shape and handed to you in a tiny paper cup. Be careful with the first bite because the inside are often boiling hot! (There are also vegetable versions but the dessert version is much better in my opinion!) 군밤 (kun bam) We just learned that 군 means roasted and now we learn another word: 밤 means chestnut! Just like in New York where there are roasted nut stands everywhere around Christmas time, the cold weather brings out the roasted chestnut vendors. 계란빵 (kye-ran bbang) 계란 means egg while 빵 means bread so voila! Egg bread! The bread part is similar to corn bread, but a little less corn-y and the egg is steamed on top to make a really, really delicious combo. It's my favorite street food after 군고구마 :D 호두과자 (ho-du kwa-ja) The small of this is unnnnbelievable! 호두 means walnut and 과자 means cookie or snack. Therefore 호두과자 is a walnut cookie! They are shaped like walnuts and filled with sweet red bean. You can buy these by the bag full too! 회오리감자 (hwae-o-ri kam-ja) LOOK AT THESE THINGS! They are called 회오리감자 because 회오리 means tornado and 감자 means potato. Behold the potato tornado! I have NO idea how you eat these :) Have you guys tried any of these? Which are your favorite? @NysA @xanderskissme @AmbieB @Jiyongixoxo @BabySheep @phantomsluvr @Rhia @VixenViVi @JohnEvans @RobertMarsh @ElizabethT @ArmyofKookie @shantalcamara @KittyKpop @jannatd93 @cthulu @HarperKennett @musicundefined9 @DekaraMiller @Mahealani @kpoplove89 @tannyo @IMNII @kpopisnylife @KoreanLove2 @lawtont @baileykayleen @oceanseokjin @Sammie99522 @RoyallyPrincess @heidichiesa @asterkimchee @CurrySoop @malibella @puppycatX0X0 @notgucci3 @Lizzeh @reallychelsea @JorgeRAMME @adikiller @blazinpurplehl @kvnguyen @lupemontserrat @ParkMinRin13 @peytoncarter2 @aguileragissel @FallingByeol @adritha13 @toughcookie @TesneemElAlami @VWolf12XOXO @ToyaH @aleciaLOVES @no5alive @AnnahiZaragoza @TravelSizedGirl @kthyl @Adetoro @linzi0302 @hahabts @primodiva93 @cindystran @Saeda1320 @misssukyi @preeta @Yearnin2learn @DorisMay27 @iforisabelle @TLeahEdwards @robertakm64 @azaraa @JeanNwagbuo @aliahwhbmida @WiviDemol @ariana2k @sosoaloraine23 @hisundays @3mmY4 @sukkyongwanser @asterkimchee @misssukyi @MandySpaulding @LatoyaHudson @Claymorex @SaraHelguero @thatkdramalover @sierradimes @TokkiGwiyomi @AnelVega @KaiTakashima @UKissMeKevin @jemitza @VWolf12XOXO @HuonTreeRoo @lovebluecolor @kel53 @JezziCrypt @LysetteMartinez @Fleurdemai00 @oxSoZeroxo @k0reanbbyq @ceramoore3 @YessicaCardenas @Kuramariin @jannatd93 @herreravanessa9 @WiviDemol @VixenViVi @Roxy1903 @NiaLuv19 @kmayong @Baekyeol27 @9thMuse @Ilikepancakes @CandaceJordan @RobertMarsh @KiKi29 @Rhia @AnnahiZaragoza @YGWinner @EllieDean @LizaNightshade @panouvang123 @sherrysahar @mistymaity @GuerlyReyes @maralatto @shantalcamara @paszikelly @SerenaMcG @unbreakable1109 @Diablo6 @YessicaCardenas @Tigerlily84 @JorgeRAMME @Bose @AegyoBunny @VivianCrespoMed @Airess95 @SHINee808 @DaisySalazar @Pickles440 @BryAnnaAhrens @CloverShadows @JordanShuler @ChrystalA @Diajuni @minsangu @TatyTheTot @GraceWatson @NickySerban @Sinique @AnaMata7397 @nightcoreanimen @KarlythePanda66 @KellyOConnor @trashlord @hyolouxx @Sarahwifi @JayDay @nettaj1013 @Miyukichan @XergaB20 @pharmgirlerin @JasmineWilliams @toughcookie @warjeensuleiman @DasiaB @talimarks @ckienitz @KeyBoss @ChristiMarie @YokoUdoran @hayesfordaze @KagamiTaiga @malibella @ocherrylimeadeo @DjKpop12 @reyestiny93 @ZeeRow
Learn Korean with Crazy Snacks!
The best way to get to know a culture is through its food and boy does Korea have a lot to get to know :) Here are a few crazy Korean snacks: PS try saying: "(snack name) 먹고 싶어요" (snack name) *meok-go ship-eo-yo) I want to eat (snack name!) 허니버터칩 (heo-ni beo-teo-chip) Literally: Honey Butter Chip People went CRAZY over these chips in Korea and stores had to place buying rules (one bag per customer!) because people would come in and buy every bag in the place! And you totally weren't cool until you posted a selca of you and your chips ;D Alright, now I love shrimp chips. In high school, my tennis team mates and I could devour BAGS of this stuff. But Korea, you've taken things too far. 초코새우칩 (cho-ko sae-oo chip) Choco-Shrimp Chip Yep, a chip that tastes like shrimp (yum!) covered in chocolate (EW!) 딸기새우칩 (ddal-gi sae-oo chip) Strawberry Shrimp Chip And you guessed it. This one is a shrimp chip covered in strawberry flavored something! 오레오 오즈 (oh-reh-oh oh-jeu) Oreo Oh's! They're only sold in Korea and online, but I've had them and they aren't THAT great. Definitely yummy but nothing a normal chocolate cereal can't deliver :) 홈런볼 (hohm-reon-bohl) Literally: Home Run Ball They're like little puffy biscuits filled with chocolate. Best when you put them in the freezer and eat them cold :3 초코파이 (cho-ko-pa-i) Choco Pie! Sort of like a hostess cupcake but much much better :) It's usually filled with either cream or a marshmallow-y type filling! 딸기파이 (ddal-gi pa-i) Strawberry Pie Basically a Choco Pie filled with strawberry cream instead! 꽃게랑 (kkot-geh-rang) Flower Crabs Similar to shrimp chips, these are just crab chips (aka chips shaped and tasting like crab) 바나나우유 (ba-na-na oo-yoo) Banana Milk Creamy delicious banana milk. It tastes like a banana milkshake but less thick and its served in the cutest little package :) 딸기우유 (ddal-gi oo-yoo) Strawberry Milk Strawberry milk is exactly what you think it is! Milk flavored with strawberry!!! Do you guys have a favorite Korean snack?
