A lot of popular Korean food is actually found on its streets leh! Whether it is a “Pojang Macha” or any other type of food vendor, these delicious foods can be find all over South Korea even though they are not very healthy! But delicious and I think once in awhile it should be a treat. 

 

1. 순대 – Sundae

Sundae is a Korean dish made of cow or pig’s intestines that are stuffed with noodles, barley, pork blood, scallions, and etc. In a sense they are very similar to sausages.

2. 오뎅 – Odeng

Odeng is a favorite food at Pojang Machas. It is a type of fish cake or fish sausage, but it might be easier to think of it as a type of fish ball that is elongated. The broth from cooking the odeng is often used as soup.

3. 떡볶이 – Tteokbokki 

This is a popular Korean snack that is made of rice cake, meat, eggs, seasoning, and spicy sauce. The common form of “Tteokbokki eaten now is very spicy but in the past it was more of a stir-fried dish made with soy sauce and beef.

I guess it depends on your surgery, but I must try the street food @___@ Just looking at the pictures is enough to make my stomach howl with hunger. :X

One of the things I'm most nervous about in Korea is actually the food . . . I don't know of any Korean restaurants around where I live, and from what I understand food is a much bigger part of their culture than it is here? So there are different standards of "politeness" when it comes to food I suppose. I just hope I don't end up with something that would really freak me out *cough*chicken feet*cough*
