This dish is made from rice cakes, then stir-fired with scallions, boiled eggs and lots of Korean chili paste, soy sauce. I love this dish so much, eating in Korea is very different from eating in Vietnam.

Sundae (Korean Blood Sausage)

Korean street food sundae blood sausage

Korean blood sausage is very different from Vietnamese sausage. The inside of Sundae is many ingredients, including glutinous rice, vegetables, barley and various spices as well as pork, all stuffed in the shell made by intestines of pork or cow. When eating, you dip it in a strange powder. It’s a bit hard to eat for those who are picky, but it’s worth a try. This dish is usually served with instant noodles or tteokbokki. From my personal point of view, dip Sundae in the sauce of tteokbokki is more delicious than dip in that powder.
