The Best Korean Street Food in Toronto

Looking for the best Korean street food in Toronto? We've got you covered!

Korean street food encompasses a wide array of delicious and flavourful dishes and snacks. Thankfully, Toronto has an abundance of Korean restaurants and several that feature some of the more popular Korean street food. What is Korean street food, you may ask? Well, a few prominent ones include tteokbokki (spicy rice cakes cooked in gochujang), eomuk (fish cake), assorted flavoured milk, kimbap (Korean sushi with vegetables and pickles) bungeoppang (or taiyaki in Japanese) and Korean fried chicken. Taiyaki is a Japanese fish-shaped waffle that's filled with custard or sweet bean paste. Koreans call taiyaki "bungeoppang" or "goldfish cake," and this street food is a widely popular snack for Koreans in the winter.
