Korean street food culture is... 🥡 colorful.👀 It's noisy. 🗯 It's hot. 👄 It's diverse. 🌈 And at present, especially with the influence of other cultures, it is also developing quickly! 🌪 In this context, I can't think of a better place to experience contemporary street food than Myeongdong (명동).
.Myeongdong is a shopping district, which is located inside the city center, close to Seoul's town hall. 🏙 It displays various aspects of modern Korean consumption culture:
Beside colorful clothing and cosmetics stores 🛍, flashy restaurants and cafes are competing for costumers. 🍽 In between the pedestrian street, the sides are flanked with street vendors selling all kinds of accessories as well as street food.
Myeongdong's street food is exceptionally exciting.📸 There is a number of exotic foods, which you cannot find elsewhere. 🦄 Even regular street food items appear more fancy, since vendors put extra effort into making their goods stand out amongst all the other options.🍓💫.
Vegetarians and vegans will find many tasty things here as well! 🌱 Ranging from savory snacks to desserts, there are veggie-friendly corn dogs (called 'Hot Dog' 🚫🌭 핫도그 in Korea) with cheese🧀, egg bread🥚, fried potatoes🥔, sweet potatoes🍠, corn🌽 and chestnuts🌰, ice cream🍦, sugar-filled pancakes🥞, fruit🍉 and so much more!!
Thanks or due to international tourists, which make up the main mass of customers, most food carts display menues in English and other languages. 🗣🇬🇧🇨🇳🇯🇵 To some degree, merchants even speak foreign languages, facilitating communication about your dietary preferences.
