One of the most sought-after Korean desserts is the Hotteok. The Hotteok is a Korean sweet pancake. It is warm and chewy, which makes it ideal during the cold season. It is made with glutinous rice dough and sweet honey-like syrup. It is fried and served hot in a paper cup. 

The owner of Hetteok-Dang said, "Winter is the perfect season to enjoy hotteok. Eating freshly friend hotteok in the freezing weather is the best way to taste the flavor. Be aware of the boiling hot sugar, as it easily overflows." 


One of Korea's comfort food, this street food is baked sweet potato. It's starchy, soft, and sweet. This is best eaten while it's hot.
