  • at the table all right going to pour some water  but first a very familiar face mr gangnam style  

  • himself hey it's been a few years since that  the cool story behind that is we were actually  

  • in korea and met together during the the  opa gangnam style psy year yeah the year of  

  • breaking out internationally basically that song  was on everyone's like ringtones it was their  

  • ringtone it was it was inescapable that summer  while the food is here and i am starting with the  

  • mandu we got the gogi mandu so they're beef and  they're also pan-fried so they're nice and crispy  

  • dipping it in the spicy sauce just the way we  like it it's like salty and savory soy sauce  

  • vinegar sesame oil i believe and chili flakes  chili flakes don't forget the chili flakes  

  • so good i can't remember the last timehad dumplings i know it's been a long time  

  • it has been ages yeah we don't really get  korean food where we live so it's nice to  

  • be in koreatown nice and meaty i guess huh yeah  oh look at that dunking it in the jun the pancake

  • so fluffy so good is it friends this is authentic  korean food to the max we've got four different  

  • side dishes four different banchan we've  got the mandu and this food right here  

  • pajam is very famous in korea for two two  particular scenarios first off when it's rainy  

  • this is typical rainy food and  also this is typical hiking food  

  • so when you've climbed a mountain or you've  gone trekking or hiking in the mountain  

  • this is these are the kind of restaurants  that you'll see at the base of the mountain  

  • exactly and you'll see uh hikers going and having  their jun and often have sometimes pairing it with  

  • soju as well and so this is awesome i can't  wait to try it i'm dipping it in it's so big

  • that is so good hits the spot that hits the spot  

  • and guys this is somewhere in between  uh korean pancake or korean pizza and  

  • this is just amazing traditional food this is one  of the dishes that whenever i go back to korea  

  • i'm craving first so now time to try  the the mandu the gum gogi mandu sogogi

  • juicy beefy this is a great start i mean if if the  day keeps going like this i'm gonna be very happy

  • so what do you got there in your hands all right  next stop was chung chun chung hot dog got it  

  • right um it's a korean rice dog yes and i got  the one that's like covered in these potatoes so  

  • there's like a hot dog on a stick then it's coated  in batter and then we've got these little almost  

  • like little hash browns yeah for the toppingwent for the classic which is actually ketchup  

  • mustard and sugar oh wow sprinkled on top they  say the sugar gives it a little extra something so  

  • take that first bite wow that thing isbehemoth that's what it looks like oh wow  

  • yeah so basically this is street food galore  when you're in korea you can get this at the  

  • food markets like the street food markets you'll  have vendors serving these yeah you can get it  

  • covered like in pieces of chicken potato there's  a classic here they had some dessert ones where  

  • it's just like chocolate in the middle pure  dessert so there would be no hot dog with that  

  • tada so there it is it's it's pretty good  actually i i kind of like the batter oh yeah yum  

  • and this restaurant is super popular like  we had to get in line and get a ticket and  

  • there's probably like 15 people waiting outside  yeah so i mean this is obviously a popular  

  • place to have a tasty bite on the summer's day

  • mmm what do you think there's something about that  batter that's just delicious yeah you're normally  

  • not a big hot dog person are you no this is like  way better than an average hot dog a really nice  

  • batter and the potatoes have been fried as if you  were making french fries like they're that crispy  

  • wow that's pretty good meal on a stick meal  honestly good to go portable you can eat it

  • anywhere

  • okay so we are moving on to the desserts and  this has to be my all-time favorite korean  

  • street food dessert hotel you'll see korean  students eating this in the winter non-stop  

  • this is like the perfect hot street food sweet  dish with lots of calories it's got like a syrupy  

  • goodness anyways i'm talking too much let's  just try this yeah so this is a nice stuffed  

  • pine cake we got the one with brown sugar look at  that all the brown sugar all of the nuts inside

  • the deeper you bite the sweeter it is we're in the  bullseye that's where you get the sweetest bite  

  • and you can get it with a whole bunch of different  fillings but the classic is definitely the brown  

  • sugar with nuts so that's what we went for yeah  and the second dessert my all-time favorite train  

  • snack in korea the hodu kwaja and i believe this  originates from chongan yes we went there before  

  • do you remember that trend i do remember that we  went to see a really big buddhist temple i forget  

  • the name but what's interesting is you can reach  ton on line number one the blue line as you're  

  • heading away from seoul so let's try this it's  going to have walnuts and red bean paste inside

  • oh that is the real deal guys look how much red  bean paste is in them so the coolest thing for me  

  • to see when we went into the shop to pick it up is  that they have the authentic authentic hulu quaja  

  • batter cast iron flippers the machinery the  machinery machinery it looks just like the stuff  

  • that you would see in children it's  amazing okay so i'm gonna try one as well  

  • something for everyone huh what do you think look  how much red bean paste there is that is amazing  

  • so good the real deal guys remember having these  on our train rides so delicious a bee landed on  

  • it it's like i want some too i'm gonna try the  whole talk too okay what does this remind you of  

  • the hotel yeah from your experience in korea  well this brings back memories of insadong  

  • yes from kind of like artsy craft quarter in  seoul yeah and in the wintertime it's just a  

  • really nice food a really nice dessert to hold  in your hands it literally warms up your hands  

  • uh-huh and guys yeah korea has proper winters  minus temperature so not as cold as canada but  

  • it gets up there some days and does so what do  you think so pretty tasty the lady at the shop did  

  • tell us this was probably going to taste a little  bit different from what we're used to in korea  

  • and that's very accurate like the ones thatremember from seoul were a bit more like pancakey  

  • and spongy fluffy this one's a bit heavier a bit  more dense yeah but still really tasty so yeah

  • okay so it is time for our next two  food items we went to a place called  

  • the owl or buongi and we got two  dishes so first up we have the bibimbap

  • so basically we have a bed of rice underneath  and then a whole bunch of different veggies some  

  • greens carrots mushrooms zucchini some soybeans an  egg and some beef don't forget the gochujang sauce  

  • the red pepper shall we add it yes please all of  it that is my favorite part and now it's just a  

  • matter of mixing it up huh how excited are you for  bibimbap beyond beyond beyond excited oh look at  

  • that nice runny egg that's gonna go really well  with the rice i normally don't like runny eggs  

  • but when it comes to mixed rice absolutely do so  i'm just breaking the egg up here first and once  

  • that's done i feel like i broke up the egg enough  now it's just time for me to mix it and you can  

  • tell this is a really good bibimbap because it's  heavy on ingredients not too much on the rice  

  • that's for me is the the sign of a good bibimbap  lots of ingredients and this is uh this is the  

  • kind of standard bibimbap you get my favorite  of all time of course is the stone pot yes  

  • the key to having a really nice dulce bibimbap  is you let the the rice burn a bit on the sides  

  • and on the bottom it creates something called  i think noryongji it's a crispy crispy rice  

  • and i think the oil they use is a sesame oil  yeah so it just has the most amazing taste  

  • if you let it burn but um yeah this one is it's  just a regular bibimbap so we won't be doing  

  • that yeah i have to say i really love the dual  stop bibimbap as well but because we can only do  

  • takeaway or dining on the patio um we couldn't  do dole salt like this particular restaurant  

  • didn't have a patio so takeout was the only  option and they obviously can't give you a  

  • stone pot to take home with you so bibimbap  was the alternative i don't think many people  

  • would return the stone pot no it'd be a nice  addition to the kitchen and guys we're at  

  • christy pitts park yeah we've got lots of people  out here we got live music families dogs couples  

  • people exercising it's a it's a nice scene  it just feels like a slice of normality  

  • but yes oh check that out guys nice big  bite that is the real deal my friends  

  • it has all the classic bibimbap ingredients  super tasty gochujang is a star for me this  

  • is a really nice gateway dish if you haven't tried  korean food before i'd recommend this or bulgogi  

  • um just an excellent kind of way to introduce  yourself to korean food this is one of my  

  • all-time favorites and i remember when i lived  in korea i would have this at least once a week  

  • sometimes twice okay and for our next dish we  got some korean spicy rice cakes wow check it  

  • out check it out it looks so good and it comes  with onions we have some cabbage sesame seeds  

  • and of course the the spicy gochujang sauce  i can see the red flakes yeah we're finishing  

  • off the day with spicy food this is maybe the  the most classic korean street food dish wow  

  • it's something that you can get at these little  restaurants that are almost like snack bars  

  • or also in the markets you can buy them from  the the food vendors yeah that's right you can  

  • even get it in some grocery stores yeah  yeah so i'm gonna try one look at that

  • i'm very chewy it's um a sticky glutinous rice  yeah and i'm feeling the burn i feel like yeah  

  • i mean we love our spicy food but i don't think  we've been eating uh that much spice lately so  

  • we are we're probably a little our stomachs  are a little weak out of practice yeah one  

  • for you guys guys if you want to try i wouldn't  call it an advance but a different kind of dog  

  • boogie go to an outdoor street vendor who is also  cooking up the two weekend which are the battered  

  • fried various objects or sometimes some some  mandu and different kinds of seafood and also  

  • sweet potato which is one of my favoritesthink it's the gamja and get them to cut it up  

  • and then dunk it into the dakbogi  sauce it's absolutely delicious  

  • my favorite way of having dokbokki is with  the wii [ __ ] but this will be perfectly fine  

  • that is seriously potent my mouth's on fire but in  a good way feel like i'm a fire breathing dragon  

  • a dog boogie dragon couldn't think of a better  way to to be spending the the beginning of summer
