Arriving in Seoul in the early evening, I was happy to see that right outside my hotel was a bunch of street vendors selling a variety of savory and sweet options. And since I was pretty hungry, most anything on a skewer looked good in the near-freezing temperatures outside.
I had (1) fried dumplings w/minced pork and rice noodles, a common filler in Korean dumplings, (2) fried shrimp in the skin, (3) fried barbecue chicken with these awfully chew dumplings, and (4) grilled chicken on a skewer.
They were each worth one or two Licks, but even I could tell that by the time I was done eating that I probably wouldn't be repeating any of this exact dishes the rest of my stay.
