Welcome back to our next episode from the Street Food Around the World in Taiwan series. Today, we are taking you to “Korea”, and will be showing you the best spots to get authentic Korean food in Taipei!
We are starting the day in Ximending where we found a Gimbap shop. They have everything on the menu that you can find in the Gwangjang Market in Seoul. The bosses were even speaking Korean! We ordered two kinds of Gimbap: spam and beef. They also provided a delicious bowl of kimchi. We washed it down with a traditional rice drink.
Nearby, there is a shop that sells all-things K-POP. Korean pop music and entertainment has had a strong influence in Taiwan with younger generations and this shop sells merchandise with famous Korean idols. Stickers, posters, pillows, bags and more line the entire shop!
You’ll even see groups of Taiwanese dancers perform popular KPOP choreography in the streets. We visited Xiangti Plaza where these dancers are known to perform. Thank you to DAZZLING for allowing us to film
Next, we visited a street food stall serving the classic Korean tteokbokki (rice cakes) and odeng (fish paste in broth). Although authentic in flavor, it was missing a little extra spice. The stall can be found in Shilin Night Market.
Something you can’t miss in Korea is fried chicken and beer. We visited a Korean chain and ordered there signature chicken with Cass beer. It is typically eaten with gloves. Locals refer to eating in this style as “chimaek”.
Finally, we HAD to include a KOREAN BBQ. This restaurant in Taipei is always packed and crazy. It is standing only around the barbecues and is self service. We ordered pork and beef, with several toppings for the lettuce wraps. We washed it down in typical Korean fashion with soju. We were so full!!!
