Mom told me, “Son, when you travel abroad, please watch out what you eat. Don’t go to hawker stalls by the roadside.” And I replied, “But mom, you know I am a curious boy. How can I resist when the food is calling for me?”
If you trust what I have just said, I am sorry but that is based on “Not True” story and slightly overdramatic. If my mom join me for this trip, I bet she will do the same too . hehe… She has the same philosophy like me “eat first and worry later”.
Now the journey to roadside food begins…
My first stop is at this hawker stalls. Although many believed that Korea has a lot of pretty girls, for some reason, my eyes are eyeing at weird shape cuttlefish and breaddog instead. Quite cheap actually. It is only about 1000 won each. I mean the cuttlefish and breaddog, not the girl
Food vs pretty girls? I am not sure about you but I will go for food. UNLESS the girl can cook good food, then I will go for the girl FOR the FOOD. Complicated? That how the girls like it.. lol
What else do girls like? Egg Egg! Please don’t think aside but there is this weird looking cake/pastry filled with whole egg, literally whole hardboiled egg in it. Korean girls likes this a lot. How do I know it?
The whole stall was crowded with pretty girls and that is how I get attracted to it at first. Hehe.. This stall also sells pan bread or biscuit alike pastry. Both taste equally good. With 1000 won each, I bet it can be a perfect tea break.
Next stop is at this busy hawker stall at Myeongdong Road. One of it sells steamboat food in stick. To me, this is sort of a bigger version of steamboat. The food is ranging from various type of vege, meats, preservative food, seafood etc.
I am very fancy on food in stick/skewer. Not because I am gay virtually but because it is convenient especially when you are on a walk. Eat and throw. The other hawker stall around this vicinity serves fried food in skewer. Nothing special about this except the crabstick is wrapped with fish ball alike wrapper.
When you hunt for roadside hawker food, please make sure that you make a stop to grab some drink too. This is what I usually do to ease my thirst after so much of fried and oily food. I stopped by at this coffee house to get not coffee but milkshake instead.
I’ve ordered mango and strawberry milkshakes. It is freshly made. So, I don’t mind paying slightly more (about 2500 won per glass). Afterall, it is surprisingly delicious.
The journey to hunt for roadside food does not end here. This is just the beginning of it.. Want to know more? You just have to visit here again.…
