As you would expect in a lot of Asian destinations, food is the glue that hold families and communities together. Everyone enjoys sitting around a good meal. And we already know much of Korean food just by the number of restaurants one can find around Melbourne. But street food takes center stage when it comes to the best local specialties you will encounter. And Korea is no different. Although you will not find street stalls at every corner in Seoul like you sometimes see in other Asian cities, go to the right area and they are everywhere. In this case, the Myeongdong area is a hot spot. Here are just some of the street food available. I would like to say that I tried them all but really it was impossible!
