Bunsik(분식) literally means “food made from flour” like Ramyeon, noodles, bread, but currently all the cheap food which sells in Bunsik restaurant are all include, such as Tteok-Bokki(떡볶이), Gimbap(김밥), Sundae(순대), Fish cake(어묵).
“Dip the food into the Sauce” is a typical Korean eating habit which you could easily see in Korea.
Today I will introduce how Korean love eating street food with sauce. Korean use Ttokbokki or Rabokki’s soup for the souse and some people dipping almost all the food when eating.
1. Gimbap(김밥) in Ttokbokki
2. Korean spring rolls in seaweed(Gimmari-김말이) in Ttokbokki(떡볶이)
3. Sundae(순대) in Ttokbokki(떡볶이)
Sundae(순대) is originally made by steaming cow or pig’s intestines that are stuffed with various ingredients. It is similar with Sausages as it originally also made by stuffing an animal’s internal organs into its intestines.
4. Chicken in Ttobokki
5. Rice balls in Ttokbokki
Rice balls are traditional Korean and Japanese food. Not all but quite a lot of Korean Bunsik(분식) restaurant also have rice balls.
6. Fried food in Ttokbokki
Normally there are various kinds of fired food in Korean Bunsik restaurants;veggies fried, squid fried, perilla leaves fried, pepper fried, shrimp fried, sweet potato fried…etc.
Type of the fired food doesn’t matter. Many Korean prefer eating fried food after dipping in Ttokbokki sauce.
7. Odeng(fish cake) with Ttokbokki
In next time I will introduce another Korean Bunsik eating habit.
