Our school is located only a block from market street. The perfect area to buy fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, and of course tasty street food. So what’s the best Korean street food?
I am so happy we were introduced to this. The correct name for this is jjinppang mandu because it is steamed. I love walking down the street and seeing the steam rise into the air, it means I’m getting closer to the mandu!
Would you take a look at the prices? Basically about $1! Mandu is a dumpling filled with onion, minced pork, and kimchi.
There are different kinds – but the best is definitely spicy kimchi. The outside is a soft warm dough. Sink your teeth in and enjoy a spicy kick of kimchi and tender pork. It’s best topped with a little soy sauce, it blends into the spice, creating a perfect flavor.
It may be difficult to see, but these are about the size of a softball. I always want two but these are really filling and one is plenty.
Makes me hungry just looking at the pictures! Oh how I will miss mandu! Someone please tell me I can find it in the States! If you ever come across it, give it a taste! You won’t regret it.
