While walking towards a tea house along Samcheonggil, we noticed many people carrying these hodeoks around. We decided to try it – and if lines in Korea indicate how good something is, this place must be really good. There was always a long line of people waiting for these tasty little treats.
There were two options – honey or vegetable. Being the sometimes-healthy person that I am, we decided to go with the vegetable one.
The vegetable hodeok is a lot bigger than the usual hodeok because of all the filling inside. So what was inside this fried concoction?
There were vegetables and japchae noodles inside. And while I tend not to like fried foods, I really liked this vegetable hodeok. Perfect little snack as we walked along the Samcheongdong and Insadong area.
To find this tasty little snack, go to Anguk Station, exit 1. Walk straight and turn right at the corner with the school gates. Walk down this pretty stone wall-lined road and turn right at the third alley. There’s usually someone holding signs to point your way into the alley.
