Hotteok are some of my favorite street food in Korea. The good ones are freshly made right in front of you, from dough that has been rising, personally filled with cinnamon, brown sugar and nuts, dropped in to the shallow fryer and flattened with the special hotteok instrument.

Before this past weekend, I had only had found one that was worthy of repeat purchases, in Insadong. Many of them are not fresh, or are not filled with much, or the pastry itself is not made with love. When you find a good one, it’s worth going back for because it’s hot of the grill, and dripping with deliciousness, too hot to down right away. And this past weekend we found amazing Hotteok in Ilsan, at the end of La Festa. Instead of handing it to you in a flimsy cardboard holder, he jammed it in a dixie cup.
