Korean street food recipes

Street stalls selling quick, inexpensive, inventive, eye-catching snacks have been a part of Korean food culture for centuries. The stalls are usually clustered wherever people gather, like schools, markets, festivals or entertainment districts. The food is constantly evolving, with new dishes and techniques developing literally overnight and then copied and reworked by other vendors in a never-ending cycle.
