Street Food in Myeongdong

Over our stay in the Myeongdong area, two nights were somewhat dedicated to munching some street food amidst the shopping and feasting. So here is an introduction to the yummy foods that we tried on this trip! 

Bungeo-ppang (red bean fish toast)

Bungeo-ppang (red bean fish toast)
 Similar to  Japanese taiyaki, this street food that we encountered seem to be miniature cute bite-sized delights filled with red bean paste filling.  The red bean paste is placed between a waffle batter and heated in a fish-shaped mold. On average the price for a packet of about 5 of these little treats cost 1,000 won to 2,000 won. I think the one we had cost us 2,000 won.
