Fun food find: Ssiat hotteok at BIFF Square, Busan

BIFF Square gets its name from the Busan International Film Festival. This annual film festival is one of the most prestigious film festivals in Asia. BIFF Square was the original location of the BIFF, which started in 1996. Although BIFF Square no longer plays hostess to the prestigious film festival — it was moved to the newly built Busan Cinema Center (영화의전당) in 2012 — the square is still a busy place, lined with a wide variety of...

TRENDWATCH: Sugar Cane Juice

You can tell when a vendor has had some success at one of the many food expos during the year. It looks like sugar cane juicers hit it big. There are three major areas where I check for street food trends, Insa-dong, Myeong-dong, and Hongdae. I first saw this in Hongdae last month, and I saw it again last weekend in Myeong-dong. Last year it looked to be fresh squeezed lemonade and, to a smaller extent, coconuts with straws stuck in...

Nosh of the Day: Poop Bread

Was giving an all-day private tour yesterday. One of the things we had was Insa-dong’s Ddong Bbang (“Poop Bread”). It’s a lot like IngeoBbang/BungeoBbang (the fish-shaped pastries). It’s a pancake batter cooked in a mold and filled with red beans. Just shaped like a pile of dog poop. The first time I saw these was at the Samziegil Building in Insa-dong. There was a stand on the ground level. Now...

Noryangjin Food Stalls Threatened

Curtis File has written a story for Yonhap about the popular Noryangjin food stalls and the movement by restaurants and convenience stores to kick them out. This may sound familiar to you, as it’s where we posted about the unique Poktanbap “Bomb Rice” (and recipe). It’s one of the coolest street food areas in Seoul. It’s a shame–a crime–that the corporate franchises are getting them kicked...

The Future of Street Food?

Based on Tammy’s and Seoul Sub–>Urban’s posts, I wanted to check out this “Bomb Rice” Poktanbap 폭탄밥 in Noryangjin. I was in the area anyway. To find it, leave Noryangjin Station (line 1) and cross the overpass away from the fish market. Turn left, and head towards a row of street food vendors. The Bomb Rice is in front of the McDonald’s. But the entire row of vendors was interesting itself. One...

Recipe: Noryangjin-inspired ‘Bomb Rice’

Seoul-Suburban posted this comment about a new dish they discovered while exploring the neighborhood around the famous Noryangjin Fish Market: I passed carts offering bibimbap, bulgogi hot dogs, deopbap, omurice, hamburgers, bokkeumbap, and something that one cart called poktanbap (폭탄밥), or ‘bomb rice.’ This last one was something new to me, so I definitely had to give it a try, especially as the sucker for anything that screams...
