October 4, 2014
By complete chance, Mike and I passed through King George Square before heading to the cinemas to watch Guardians of the Galaxy. As a result, we stumbled upon the 2014 Korean Cultural Festival while it was in full swing.
Numerous stalls lined the square, many offering different Korean street foods, which pulled us in immediately.
We started off with two kinds of vegetarian dumplings ($5) – yum!
The stall we found most enticing, Korean hot dogs! For $2 each, we had delicious battered and deep fried hot dogs with a sprinkle of sugar and tomato sauce…
Delicious Soboru Pan ($2, Korean peanut butter crumbled bread) – which was moist and delicious! Reminded me of a pineapple bun with a more decadent topping.
I’m not a fan of red bean, but Mike loved this donut with red bean filling ($2)!
We were also invited inside the City Hall’s main auditorium for a variety of performances including traditional music and dance. Unfortunately, we had a movie to catch!
What an unexpected and pleasant surprise! 🙂
