These dogs are my weak point when I’m walking down the streets here…Korean Corn Dogs, also known as Korean Hot Dogs or Stick Corn Dogs, have been gaining popularity all over the world.
These delicious snacks originated here in South Korea and have become a beloved street food. With their crispy exterior and soft, chewy interior, they are an irresistible treat that is perfect for any occasion. My whole family loves to have this trendy Korean street food as a snack once in a while at our local fried food stalls. They are fantastic alone or with some beers!
What are they?
These beloved ‘snacks on a stick’ are a type of popular street food that can be seen all over South Korea. They are made by skewering a hot dog or sausage and coating it in a layer of batter made from flour, yeasted dough or glutinous rice flour, and sugar. The coated hot dog is then dipped in a variety of toppings, such as panko crumbs, french fries pieces, or even ramen noodles before being deep-fried until golden brown.
The result is a crispy, savory, and slightly sweet treat that is both filling and delicious. They can be enjoyed plain or with a variety of sauces, such as ketchup, mustard, or mayonnaise. Here in Korea, most people sprinkle sugar on top of the cooked batter. I’m not a big fan of that so I simply have mine with a little ketchup and mustard. Hold the sugar, please!
