Korean corn dogs, one of Korea’s most beloved street foods, are suddenly popping up everywhere. Over the past few months, New Yorkers have been spotted waiting in long lines to sample the extra crispy, lightly sweet, and flavorful concoctions filled with mozzarella cheese, a hot dog, or both. . These Korean corn dogs stand out from Americans because of their toppings and dough (dare we say: superior). Some stores use rice flour in the dough, creating a slightly chewy but light texture with every bite. Another pro tip: don’t be light on the toppings, either. To get the full experience, be sure to ask for the Korean corn dog to be mixed with sugar and drizzled with all types of sauces, from cheddar cheese sauce to creamy mayonnaise.
While this delicious snack has been slow to appear in New York City, at least compared to LA, New Yorkers finally have several options to try. The demand for Korean corn dogs does not seem to be slowing down either. Here’s where to try New York’s crispest Korean corn dogs, from the classic sugar-dusted type to those topped with ramen.
