When you visit South Korea, you'll find a lot of street food choices—there's tteokbokki, hotteok, Korean corndogs, and gimbap. You'll also see some fried fritters called jeon, which is basically a savory pancake. It can be made from meat, seafood, or vegetables, and served as a side dish (it's included in your samgyupsal set) or a mid-day snack. You can also pair it with soju or makgeolli. A jeon is both crispy and soft, and you will find it hard to stop yourself from eating it.
If you have a jar of kimchi in your fridge, why not turn it into kimchi jeon? It takes less than 15 minutes to make and you probably have all the other ingredients in your pantry! Watch this video by content creator Kat Noble, as she shares a step-by-step recipe on how to cook kimchi pancakes:
