Seoulglow #6 - Susan Eats Jokbal!

My Friend - Takoyaki

There are a bunch of Takoyaki videos on Youtube. I liked this one because the guy seems really cool (he's a Japanese rocker) and I like the music. At about 1:30 it looks like his hands are in fast forward. Last year I did a post of three videos that show how to make Takoyaki at home.

No Reservations Korea

From Anthony Bourdain's Travel Channel show, No Reservations.

Learn Korean - Picture/Vocabulary Lesson 1 - Street Food

The third video is a good overview of street food in Korea. If you're just interested in the food without the language lesson, just watch the third one.

dukbokki, dduk bok kie, tteokbokki, 떡볶이, dukboki, ddeokbokki

The second video is just to show what odeng (fishcake)looks like. You can buy odeng premade in packages. Odeng is good with dukbokki. Street vendors serve odeng on skewers, and it kind of looks like big ribbon candy.

These videos are mesmerizing. My mom loves watching Korean "soap operas" set in this era. Makes me proud to be Korean.
