Steak on the street

leave a comment »

A first trip to Seoul and had the immense pleasure of staying in the Myeongdong neighborhood. Obviously, did research on the neighborhood that would be best conducive to a vacation that still required a few hours of work and Myeongdong was a perfect fit.

Around mid-afternoon (on weekdays) the streets fill with food carts galore, serving everything from chicken barbeque to ice cream, to traditional Korean dishes like gimbap or japchae.

After making a few rounds, was up near the 4-Line subway station when the smell or steak wafted through. There it was, a cart with a flat-top grill with beautiful steaks cooking away. With an aroma that was so embracing, no question was stopping for another snack.

₩6,000, or just a bit over US$5.00, it is lovely. Topped with a tangy sauce and some bean sprouts on the side, it was street food to another level.
