Demon club hotdog (도깨비 방망이 핫도그) is a modern Korean street snack often found in busy areas where tourists and young people flock like Dongdaemun Market 동대문. Basically the name comes from the classic demon in folktales who carries around a spiked club, very similar to the Japanese Oni character I have illustrated above! Close enough!
OM NOM NOM NOM~
This Korean street food is a hotdog on a stick dipped in batter just like a corn dog, only after that it is rolled in french fries/potato chunks and then deep fried! It is finished off with a drizzling of ketchup and or mustard, usually the vendor will confirm if you want that on top OR a bottle will be provided at the counter. The batter they use to create this Delicious blob on a stick is a bit more tempura-like VS normal corn dog batter, so the result is a nice crispy, doughy, potato-stuffed bite.
Usually I see these stacked in a pre-fried pile among other stick snacks, so just look for the fried food! Its DEFINITELY better with ketchup, so make sure you get some squirted on your dog before you walk off.
The price for a “demon club” runs around 1,500- 2,000 won and one is pretty huge… enough to share if you like. They can be a little tricky to eat on the go with the ketchup, but not impossible! Kill that frydog Stephiee!!
When my friends came to visit from California this was one of the snacks they had been looking forward to try! Aw see how nice they share? Sharing is caring lol ♥
This particular Korean street food cart had a number of amazing grilled and fried things on sticks to enjoy~ mouth watering.
