koreanfood Snap de la semaine: Street food, Gwangju

In South Korea, food is generally available from street carts during the day, where customers eat standing beside the cart or have their food wrapped up to take home. At night, streets are filled with small tents that sell inexpensive food, drinks and alcohol. It is a wonderland of deliciousness.

Kathryn and Daniel will post a ‘Snap de la semaine’ irregulary, but at a rate of one per week. It is an original photo not otherwise on the site—it might be fresh from our camera, a new scan of some old film, a product of our fooling around with Photoshop, or a file from the archive that we haven’t posted yet.

    Street food in Korea is delicious! My favorites: steemed mandu, rice cakes with tomato sauce, and those little bean cakes (can’t recall the name). Mmmmmm, so good! I’m hungry just thinking about it…

    I have to agree with Kathryn. It is delicious. I love the mandu (steamed or fried), but my favorite is the hotteok (the little sugar/cinnamon filled pancake).

      Eric, I completely forgot about those! Yes, they are amazing! I remember getting them in Seoul and there being a huge lineup at the stand. People (Korean or not) go crazy for those things!
