  • In Korea, you're gonna notice a lot of stands like this.

  • Now this is where they're gonna sell a lot of street food

  • and it's not just the hot dogs and sausages that we're used to from North America.

  • [music]

  • This is a full meal.

  • [roar!]

  • [music]

  • So if you're feeling snackish and you don't need a whole meal

  • you can come in and get some odeng, which is just pressed fish cake

  • on a stick

  • and when you order dokbokki. Okay. So, over here,

  • dokbokki. Okay? Mmm, it's a much heartier meal. So you'll be pretty full.

  • And I want to show you over here the proper names.

  • [music]

  • So this is called Twigum. We have yatchae, kimaree, ojingo, gogoma, and mandu.

  • And if you want a snack you can have some kimbap.

  • "Dokbokki dugay jusayoh. Ahh.

  • Twigum doogay.

  • Yatchae, gimaree, gogoma.

  • Hago mandu, gogoma, gimaree.

  • Neh!"

  • So this delicious piece of food here is kimaree,

  • and on the inside you have the same noodles used for japchae,

  • so it's like a sweet potato noodle and it's wrapped in seaweed

  • and then wrapped in batter and fried.

  • And it may not sound too great right now, but it is really, really delicious.

  • Then you have, this is kogi mandu.

  • So it's just meat and noodles...

  • it's been basically like a dumpling that's been deep fried.

  • Also really delicious.

  • And gogoma is just sweet potato.

  • And Korea has an abundance of sweet potatoes, and they're really, really good.

  • And healthy for you!

  • And the only difference with yours, Simon, is...

  • (yatchae) yatchae,

  • which is covered in sauce. It's just basically vegetables

  • that have been battered and fried together.

  • So if you do order some dokbokki and twigum

  • you can help yourself to some odeng mul.

  • It's just the actual broth from the odeng,

  • but usually it has like onions, and crab legs

  • and other really delicious things.

  • So then, right in the middle here you have Soondae,

  • which is basically like a,

  • same japchae noodles mixed with a little bit of meat

  • and put into sausage casing and steamed.

  • So, it's really, really delicious,

  • and you could also get sometimes liver and other...animal...organs

  • with it as well. I've had lung before...

  • which I didn't enjoy. But I did enjoy the liver!

  • Now! Here's one of the best parts about dokbokki:

  • see this ten thousand won? Watch what happens with it.

  • It's happening...wait...

  • gamsahamnida!

  • Four thousand won back! Essentially, Martina and I

  • are both completely stuffed, and it only cost us six thousand won.

  • Now look at the currency exchange rate; that's, five bucks maybe?

  • For both of us to be completely full.

  • Now that's a good deal.

  • Dokbokki can be very, very spicy.

  • What do you want to do now Simon?

  • I don't know. Maybe we could SHAZAAAAAAAAAAAM!

  • [music]

  • So today we're gonna take you to order some blaaaaaahhh!

In Korea, you're gonna notice a lot of stands like this.
