From fishcakes to different meats, there’s something so comforting about street food that elicits childhood memories. If you grew up in any Asian country, you know exactly what I mean.
Maybe it’s the way the freshly cooked sweet potato (another type of street food in Korea) warms up your body as you walk down a busy sidewalk in the middle of winter. Maybe it was your favorite place to eat with your friends after classes. Either way, street food has become a staple for busy workers, students, tourists, pedestrians, and basically anyone with access to these popular food carts.
It was inevitable that Jae and I talked about our childhood as we cooked up some delicious ddukboki, a traditional Korean street food. Jae and his friends grew up eating this dish from busy food carts after school. He was delighted to find out how easy it was to remake this at home.
Here’s a full video of us rambling on about weird childhood stories while stuffing our faces with ddukboki 🙂
