Photo: Street Food in Seoul

Written by

Every day this month we’re going to be featuring a photo of street food from around the world.  It’s all part of our celebration of Global Street Food, culminating in our  event on May 1 at the Broad Stage.  Email us your photo and we’ll post it on our blog.

These photos are from Elizabeth Kim, a travel journalist and photographer in Seoul, South Korea:

Street food of all kinds are offered in the busy streets of Myeongdong, Seoul. Here, busy food vendors crowd the streets lined with buildings that house multiplex theaters and high fashion boutiques. On any given day, you can see this urban district bustling with tourists and locals alike, forming lines around these carts offering delights.

And for dessert? A foot-long green tea yogurt.
