South Korea’s hawker foods

Hawker stands and food carts are a common sight throughout Asia, so it won’t come as a surprise that South Korea is packed with them. Today we explore the culture in South Korea where Pojangmacha, or street vendors, operate both in the open air and small, portable restaurants. Pojangmacha literally means “covered wagons,” and these tented street food stalls are popular with the after-work crowd. The many markets in town also offer places to try a wide variety of inexpensive Korean snacks.

Watch this interesting documentary and get yourself acquainted with South Korea’s hawker foods.
