Geumjeong Market’s “Youngkukine” Offers Dirt Cheap and Tasty Korean Street Food Snacks

Once a hole-in-the-wall street food snack shop, Youngkukine has become a foodies hotspot in the country after several prominent YouTuber’s featured the restaurant last year.

Opened in 1988, owner Jung Sun-dal keeps prices at an amazingly low price but doesn’t compromise on quality.

Located at the front of Minam Elementary School, a dish of tteokbokki costs 200 won per serving, with other regular street food favorites like odaeng costing 500 won, chicken sticks costing between 500 and 1,000 won, twiggim 200 won and soondae at 3,000 won.

What made her shop an instant hit wasn’t just her low prices.

A feature by YouTuber Na_reum TV got over 2.3 million hits with other reviewers also garnering over 1 million views.

You can watch the video above which has English subtitles available by YouTuber’s “ddeong-gae” to get a glimpse of the Korean street food goodness.
