Hotteok is Korea's Boston Creme Pie and it's one of my favorite snacks when it gets colder. It's a simple recipe. You put a little sugar, cinnamon and ground up peanuts into a risen dough disk and then fry it up in some oil. It's very much like a donut, but chewier. My favorite place to get it is out Anguk Station Exit 4 past the palace. There is an old grandpa there that's been doing it for years. It's good stuff and his is slowly cooked with little oil. Delicious.
