So, I’ve been trying to think of a way to present the rest of my photos of the yummy street foods to be found in Korea, and decided to do a massive post 🙂

Here we go!

First stop, the popular all in one corn dog! That’s right, a hot dog battered, then rolled in chopped french fries, and then deep fried. So crunchy and delicious, your mouth and arteries will sing at once ^^;; Really, it’s a pretty tasty snack, just make sure to slather on some ketchup.

Next up, the waffle sandwich! Freshly made thin (not Belgian style) waffle slathered with your choice of butter, jam, peanut butter, chocolate or honey (or a mix of everything!), and folded in half. I’m sure I was not the only girl craving a waffle after watching Coffee Prince (커피프린스 1호점) ^_^

Last stop is the snack booth! Hopefully there is a friendly ajusshi or ajumma manning this pick-a-mix of crunchy snacks. Everything from salty and sweet  rice crackers to fried dough snacks, and flavored nuts. If you are lucky, you might even get a couple scoops of extras as a “service” 😀

Haemul Sujebi 해물 수 제비 is a seafood soup with sujebi, dough flakes made of wheat, with fresh clams, fish, egg  and seaweed, topped with a sprinkle of roasted sesame seeds.

It isn’t anything fancy or rare in Pusan. In fact you can probably find it at any restaurant that also serves noodles. It’s a comfort food, something warm, savory and deeply flavorful. I am not a huge fan of ramen or ramyeon, but something about sujebi is just perfect after a week filled with grilled meat and fried heavy foods (and more than my fair share of soju >_<)
