호떡 Hotteok from Insadong (Sambodang)

호떡 Hotteok is made from wheat flour, water, milk, sugar, and yeast after which the dough is to be set aside to rise for a few hours. Typically this pancake is filled with brown sugar, honey, chopped peanuts and cinnamon. It is then fried on a greased skillet/griddle, and then pressed flat with a special tool made of stainless steel circle and wooden handle as it cooks. As yummy as it sounds, of course it was on my MUST TRY LIST but it was a matter of deciding on which place that sells the best was another issue.

But I’m glad we tried this one located at Insadong instead of many others that had passed us by as it’s known as one of the very best hotteok food stand found in Insadong. It’s very easy to spot as it’s located about half way down the main walking street in Insadong. Look for the maroon signage and the long line of people queueing for their hotteok.

Be very careful to not get burnt by the filling of it which is extremely hot.

    1. Thanks!! Well, I did a little research before I headed over to Seoul and was told that this place was the ‘must-go’. Have to agree, the other places didn’t taste as nice as this and wasn’t as crispy/chewy! Now I really miss this!!!!
