Korean Street Food in Seoul

I never would’ve imagined that I’d find all the street food my heart desires in Seoul, South Korea. I took this photograph during one of my many visits to the Myeong-dong, a super-busy district known primarily for shopping. But around five o’clock (1700) a bunch of little carts and stands roll in out of nowhere, and the streets start to smell like delicious-ness (yes, that is a word). Every few feet the aroma changes from sweet to salty to spicy to pungent. Even if you aren’t hungry, you will be after walking through the crowded lanes.

I especially loved the cheesy, grilled lobster tail and honey hand-spun candy (dragon’s beard). This street feast is everything (and has everything).
