I just noticed these in Insa-dong. Actually, I didn’t notice them in Insa-dong. We were so rushed with doing street food munching video footage for SBS that I didn’t investigate this further until I downloaded my pics at home. If I had been paying closer attention and not heeding the producer who wanted me to buy a hoddeok (in summer, have you), I woulda gone for one of these.

What are they?

They look like hoddeok with japchae inside. It looks like the same rice and corn flour mixture that’s in those famous Insa-dong hoddeok, which I call “Insa-dong hocakes.”

Gonna have to try one next time. People love japchae. People love fried dough. Together at last!

If you’ve tried these, report, please.
