Much like the entire continent of Asia, street food is hugely popular in Korea and many of the most beloved dishes in the country come from street carts and stands. In this episode, Marja and Jean-Georges eat street food all over the peninsula, including silkworm larvae, hoddeok, sweet pancakes filled with peanuts and sugar, and Dragon’s Beard, a candy made of stretched honey and nuts. At home, Marja makes her version of bindaddeok, her signature take on this simple pancake made of freshly ground mung beans shallow-fried until browned and crisp. Jean-Georges puts his spin on street food, incorporating Korean flavors into hot dogs with kimchi relish and lobster rolls, much to the delight of his neighbor, actor Hugh Jackman. He also prepares a chicken sandwich and a few cocktails, including a Korean bloody Mary made with kimchi. Covering Korean nightlife too, this episode also features Marja’s recipe for buddae jjigae, a soup that doubles as the Vongerichten hangover cure.
